I don't know how two guys living in different states can build something so similar in style..... Marty and I build stuff close but it's because I'm trying to beat him or he is TRYING to beat me. But to have two guys that don't talk on a regular bases is almost scary.
The paint on this is actually primer grey and cleared over it. The slicks are piecrust from my parts box. I generally don't spend money on aftermarket I just use what is on hand except for the pre-wired distributor and seatbelt hardware.
