    Very cool thread with a great power train twist! Thanks for posting and being open to advice, I find the wealth of knowledge here humbling, but appreciate safety tips from Denny and Jerry, and appreciate that you don't get offending and are keeping this thread alive! What are your thoughts towards paint on the body? A distressed patina or something less Rat? I agree with the others if I was walking down the street and saw that BMW Supercharged V8 I'd definately be stopped in my tracks.

    I'm a bit up in the air on color, my natural is the semi-gloss black. I was toying with the idea of a dark military green (which wouldn't work so well with the red accents). Or maybe even a wrap like a brushed stainless look. I'll wait to let the car tell me what it want's when that time comes.

    In the very first post of the the thread. No, that's a photo sent to me by CCR when I was looking to purchase that chassis.

    You see a problem with my current set up?

    Man oh Man you guys are tough!
    Some of us do have lives with families and other "stuff" to do.. you think "we" just work on a hot rod each and every night / day?
    What if this guy is a "across the country" trucker? Maybe instead of being on the east coast he's on the west!

    Ligthin' up, maybe he has other things in life to do right now?!?!?
