That looks good. Be sure to do the 'generis' front bumper to protect the front lip.

WOW that looks fantastic. killer paint job!!! looks like you really spent some time on that. the stripes look so good very clean and crisp edges. what kind of mask did you use? it looks like green masking tape. i never have good luck using that stuff on lexan.

Rick won an unpainted head a while back didn't he? Use that one Rick.

I love the hustle here as opposed to the other guys who keep calling me to bend the rules for them. Looking good, Rick! Lot's of heads here too, though Matt's little unit passes the regulations with flying colours!

Awesome job here! Once I have some cash to burn, a cup racer is on my list. I've got a delorean body that I'm 90% sure is a fit for a cup racer. Seems they are tough to find.

Let's see some more photos and vid, please :popcorn::popcorn:
