    Is your V a 'California car' so added emissions controls and partially neutered power?

    it's actually a FL car that was brought to Ca and put through emissions. Believe it or not, they didn't change anything, it passed as it sat. Now that I have a Tim C intake, it won't even pass the visual inspection though...

    I'm thinking there may be a lot of 3.6 blocks available. If a shot blows one up, what's the real loss? You said you have a spare hood.

    The fog light projectors come out really easy. Might be better than taping them up.

    The LEDs should be interesting to see lit up.

    I was afraid to screw with em, it was like 3am when I finished separating the lenses. Lol.

    The LEDs look awesome!!! I'll post a pic tomorrow of those. They won't be on the car yet, but I'll light one up.

    Thanks for all of the pic updates. It's looking pretty awesome so far. I like the plans of going TT too.
    BTW, based on your LED tester I see you've got good taste in RC cars

    No halos?!

    Not liking the hood sorry. Does it even open fully without contacting the windshield?

    Halo's are for BMW's IMO, LOL.....
    Surprisingly, The hood actually does open all the way. I'm still not sure about it either. From some angles, I love it, others---Eh! The car should be all back together by Saturday. Once I can move the car out in the open & I can really see it from all angles & I'm not right on top of it I'll decide. The popular consensus at the body shop is everybody who sees it, loves it.
