    Socks and shorts are part of my Dig Chief look from Street Outlaws!


    Built not bought! Follow this link to my Build Thread for modification details.

    My biggest fear is when I die my wife will sell my car and parts for what I told her they cost!

    Epic, lol

    Enkei 17x10s with 6.4" backspacing/18mm offset with 315/35 Nitto NT01s (appear to) fit on the front without spacers. Rears have 2" of inside clearance, so these may go to Weldcraft over the winter to get widened to 11.5 or 12".





    Here is how the drivers door is being prepped and painted:

    1) door sanded and cleaned


    2) after 3 coats epoxy sealer


    3) after 2 coats of Jet Set Black basecoat


    4) after 3 coats of House of Kolor Show Clear coat


    Inside the door was also recleared (again), now the real work will start: Block out the outside and do a final clear session and then a cut and polish. Can't wait; this is a similar procedure to how the other parts and the chassis were prepped and painted.

    Thx John Connery, it will be crisp, lol!

    Shameless plug for one of the best painters in the country: http://www.connerycustompaint.com/

    Drivers Door is sealed, primed, with base coat and 3 coats of clear. Sanded in between coats, then final sand, cut and polish. Can't wait to pick it up tomorrow and drop off the passenger side. Moving forward, thx John.
