    Wow Matt, that's a lot of work you did there. Looking good, look forward to seeing this one finished. I like the choice of induction you are going to use, and I LOVE those wheels, one of the first aftermarket wheels I ever liked, I actually have a set off my friends Super Bee that are painted a dark grey. Let me know if you can't find any for yours.

    Matt, I had no clue how much work you personally did to the car. I am actually kind of blwn away by it.
    Wood. Metal. You are a true hands on guy.
    The car will be awesome with or without A/C.

    I enjoyed the hell out of the serious metal work that was needed on that car and would do it again.

    Wow amazing work. I thought Nick was the only one who did that much metal work on their car. You didn't do it in your backyard though under a tent. :)
