    Are the sides of the back bumper lengthened? There's really nothing I don't like about this car. I'd love to see some interior pics.

    Thanks, The bumper was pie cut and shortend about 4" total. I wanted it to fit nice & tight on the body I have the seats done right now & the door panels & getting the same treatment as we speak..... Real "Tuck & Roll" simple black. I never wanted a wild Kustom, something nice and classy. I have named her "Lone Star Delight" I will post up some pics of the interior very soon.

    Cheers,
    Sam

    "Lone Star Delight", I like that name!

    From Merriam Webster:

    "Delight"

    1
    : a high degree of gratification : joy; also : extreme satisfaction
    2
    : something that gives great pleasure <her performance was a delight>
    3
    archaic : the power of affording pleasure

    "A year later & this is what he & his amazing group of employees came up with"

    That's actually a quick turnaround for the amount of work. I know Sean and crew pretty well. I don't know if I would call the crew amazing though. Ha Ha. The finished product looks really, really nice and yes, Sean and Greg are awesome welders.

    Oh, see, that's not fair. You did the classic "Lose 20lbs in a week" photo shoot.

    You shot the no skirts pic from a crap angle in crap light and then "POW" a shot with the skirts on with strong contrast, bling and dramatic camera angle. The poor girl didn't have a chance...and neither did the viewing public....."Oh, oh, it has to have skirts. See how much better it looks with skirts".

    Well, I'm not buying it! Take another pic without the skirts, and this time give it some love.

    I like it both ways.
