The finished car and owners picking it up. The Mrs had intentionally stayed away and not taken a look at the car since it was just the body before it was painted.
Back from the interior guys at V34 Custom Interiors. A few final things for us to finish up and it done.
Ready to go to V 34 Custom Interiors here in Eugene to get the interior installed.
Here's a look at the Flowmaster exhaust being installed, Dakota Digital gauges, and the console being installed.
The major assembly is done. Here we have the car on the lift for exhaust install. Once exhaust is installed it's time to fire up the LS3 for the first time.
