Yeah, I kinda like it too. Take off the Mag Daddy ads though =X

I saw some details that needed to be worked out, like window seals and what not. But over all, it was nice. I like the late model exterior door handles. They need to be fitted better...they're poking out a little bit. It's a nice touch.

Thanks for sharing!

I only had a problem with the wheels & bright orange paint. The wheels are starting to grow on me though. How did the gray interior dye look in person?

I like the wheels. Interior looked pretty good to me. Love the orange with the gray. If it was all orange, out would be too much. But the gray sets it off nicely.

Ok i am really quite disappointed here. They went and ruined this car with all those damn vinyle ads all over the car. Do the windows for your adds dont cover up the car. what i liked about the car was its smooth apparence.
I didnt even notice the door handles once they put those on in the show but now they seem to be not as well done as they looked on the show. Photoshoped or what.....

Those vinyl ads can be peeled right off with no damage to the paint. JB

I like the taillight treatment, but I also wondered why they didn't just use a 75 taillight and trunk lid when they were whining about the 73 style on the show.
