custom trunk floor. The hood was also replaced with a fiberglass
ram air hood. The hood has endless hours of work done to make it
fit and look factory! The body does have a mini tub done but with
the factory wheel wells to give it that stock look. The engine bay
is completely custom as the builder removed the shock towers,
smoothed out the fire wall and built all new sides. The grill and
the hood scoop insert were both powder coated to match the wheels.

area was removed and reshaped for a very custom look. It was sent
off and professionally chromed. All the trim was sent off and
