OK....well compounds and cutters are ALOT different than waxes!!


I've had more then 1 customer show up for a graphix job, and say "Look...I even gave it a fresh waxing for ya!!"

Folks have no idea how much work that takes to remove a wax job. Nearly as much as it does just to put one on!!




carry on......

Oh man, so shiny! Can't wait to see the race graphics; the fuel tank skid plates look great as well!

Sitckers& Graphics

Just a thought; If the back window is not used (shield behind front seats), why not use the giant rear glass as a "billboard"?
The sponser stickers could just go on the front quarter panels, just behind the front wheels and keep the rest of the body sticker free (except the racing #'s)...

Mini Cats

Universal mini cat converters are available and are enough to satisfy most requirements, especially for the uh...."closed course racers". If you ever were to drive on the open road (and not the closed course) and happened to get checked, it would at least show good intent.

Here's a link, cheap too......

First, some Xanax for Patrick so he will relax:








Here's a couple of interior shots since I got the center console, the seats and harnesses all in:







Ok, so it was a long day at Lonnie's as he worked on getting the "base coat" of graphics on the car. Lonnie is old school and doesn't do vinyl wraps....and I don't have the coin to even think of getting it done. Lonnie and I worked out a design idea and he came through like he always does. So this is what he got done today:



















I am very happy with how its going.....very happy indeed!!

Wow! Your car is awesome!

You know, I keep thinking a car like yours minus the rollover at speed cage would make a great, practical global exploration vehicle.

Not looking for a quote but can you give a rough-stimate of how much the roll cage cost?

I am just wondering if it was $1000 - $5000 - $10000. Putting a project together on paper and don't know any local cage guys yet.
