Nice work. Looks awesome and bad to the bone. You've got some great talent with painting too. I like the body.

Small suggestion to finish the look off. Get some tube or center drill some 5/16" dia. alum. rod to give the impression of tube, cut two shortie stacks about as tall as the front windshield, put a nice 45 degree cut on the top end, and mount them in the center of your truck's hood, like they do on super stock pulling tractors! That would be bad arse! :mrgreen: Don't forget to polish.

Let us know how fast this thing is and how long the tranny holds up.
never thought of stacks thru the hood....but did consider these stacks!!!

I thought I recognized those shorts! LMAO!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: those were the same Kamakazi shorts he was wearing when he tried to destroy Maxx! The camera panned too quickly, did he have a devious grin, drool, and kinda bulging eyes as he looked towards those overpass pillars? LOL :lol: :lol:

That sounds like him. His "MUHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!" is usually followed by the sound of his flip-flops running towards the overturned vehicle, as he tries to hide the carnage. Then he adopts his best "Steve Erkle" when he says, "did I do theyyaaatt?!?"
