I love the pipes.

I think it has that subtle drag racer look with the wheelie bars.

I'm not being criticle but would like to see a more realistic spoked wheel in the front. The rear has the chrome rim of the wheel showing and it appears to be a spoker.

I'm sure any color will set this piece off but to tell you the truth, the bare metal look adds a little mistique to the project.

I'll ghive it a 91/2 out of ten.

I like it alot, how about trimming the glass at the side so you don't see it!
I'd like to see it flat black with the side pipes polished out!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

That's pretty sweet! You guys need to have before/after pics for us newbies so I can see what it looked like before you started.I love the raked stance you have on that one.

AWESOME! If you can't find any skinnies for up front, let me know and I will rip something apart and send them to you! Are you leaving the wheelie bars black? Helluva car!!

What a cool car! I really like the way you've got the exhaust ported through the body like that. I would never have thought of it.

Pink on this caddy would be smoooth...

This one is a tough call.... A super bright in-your-face color would be great for the track, but if it were for more of a street race setting you'd have to go with the subdued look of a flat black.

I'd have to build a second one and do both paint jobs, lol
