    Wow, that looks sharp! And once it's been wet sanded and polished it's going to be as smooth as glass!!

    At last...it`s gotta feel good! John, you need to get Tony or Adam to put this and all of the Cuda Capers threads together in one to chronicle the evolution of your car. Just as you did the pictures in the beginning of this thread, but everything together would be awesome.
