No line locks...just brakes and a lead foot!

It's absolutely insane. I can't emphasize enough the difference the right tires make...oh...and also a shot of dope!

Definitely cool watching your car going so fast and then remembering you were the one driving it!

Nice!

The guy kept telling you to move up, and you just kept sitting there shredding your tires. LMAO.

LOL...that was Owen my builder. He did a great job of coaching me through everything. I'd only been to the track a couple of times, and this was the first time with the blower. I was definitely happy with the results. Can't wait for the fest!

Thanks Bunny!

Steering wheel and hood are both on...I'll try and get some pics up soon.

Posi mod, ARP studs and Hawk pads went in the other day. Blacked out the exhaust tips today. Looks like everything is ready.

Here are some pics of the final touches before the fest. ACS SS9 sleeper hood, blacked out exhaust tips and ACE steering wheel.

What did you use on the exhaust tips. Looks great.

That steering wheel looks great with the IOM interior.

Thanks Emma.

ARD was going to powdercoat the exhaust tips, but the mufflers wouldn't fit in their oven. Owen had a great idea about using grill paint. It's matte black, and handles 1200 degrees. Turned out great and only costs a few bucks.

I really like the ACE steering wheel. The next step is to paint the silver trim pieces IOM and matte black. I wanted to have that done before the fest, but just ran out of time.

The car looks great and that steering wheel is DROOL worthy !!! I think the license plate screws want some black paint, too!

I couldn't find any black screws to blend in with my frame, so I decided to paint them the last time I waxed my vehicle. It's subtle, but makes a difference...
