    1500 degree temp paint of course. stripping the old paint took longer then painting it. The block and head where orange and the valve cover candy purple.. dont ask....

    I attempted that once. It looked nice, until it got all greasy going in. After about 4 months, the paint started to wear.

    Looks good though.

    No wide body just fender flares. Yes sir the handles are shaved. Its a pain right now though since the battery is out. i have to crawl in through the hatch to open the doors.

    While the concept is nice, and it presents a very clean look to the car, I wouldn't do the whole shaved door thing. Knowing my luck, I would end up stuck outside my car in bad weather and be fother mucking myself.

    LMAO I know thats going to happen to me one of these days. Im contemplating on whether swapping dors with someone who wants shaved handles. For that same reason. I also want to get the car re-sprayed. I would like a color that doesnt say; "Hey Officer look over here!":police: Preferably black or white.

    The motor was the same color but I thought this was a better look. Even though it doesnt match. I want to get the car re-sprayed so it will match the motor.. some day. lol

    Nice job man, and the hatch isnt bad either, not too extreme. I almost bought a hatch with shaved handles. I need to clean my engine up better.

    I like the engine better than the car :p

    The engine has sort of a retro look to it. As far as the car goes, I'm pretty much not into "that". :)
