We're basically down to bare metal and after all this work I feel like we'd be crazy to not go with a custom color. I saw this years ago and always loved.

Let me know if you have any suggestions. I also like the Tundra Pro cement color.

This is a killer color. I'm trying to decide if i'll keep my rally car rosewood or go olive. The factory olive from the 70's has way more yellow, but still rad.

Haven't posted in a bit, but there has been a bunch of progress!

Here you can see the exterior is fully stripped and the vehicle really isnt too bad. Any visible cancer was repaired.

The interior, frunk and engine bay were going to be very tough so instead of stripping them by hand we had the entire car sand blasted....

Ryan H 06-18-2018 02:03 PM

Back from blasting!

Found a couple additional cancer spots that will be addressed.

Gonna be a pretty sweet Sema build from the looks of it!

Funny that Eibach is using an SC. you know, because of the whole torsion bar thing.
