    Thanks man!

    The frontend will be high, and lowering the back a little, with bigger openings and tires pointing out. And as for the Paint, Im going for oldschool flames burning out from the backwheels openings and goes up on trunk(like the tires sets on fire)

    And on the sides(crossing the door) with the name; "FIRESTARTER" , hand painted, (no stickers off course)

    But the base color hasnt been nailed yet,
    will see about that detail. Colored glass.

    What do you Think about that idea?
