    Smile my 04 GTO.R clone in the making

    Here she is so far, I still have to pull the quarters out about 2 inches, do the rear bumper, and repaint the parts, but it's getting closer!

    I would say the paint job is tack on, but the front lip, side skits, and spoiler dont really match up ? The real ones actually look like the body kit is apart of the car, yours, idk man if you like it then thats what counts.

    I dont want to say the R word........

    yeah the paint job was basiclly pulled off of the TGR car, the kit and wing are all hand fabed. The kit will look alot better after I get it painted, right now it looks all out of place with the body. I wish I could wrap my skin arould a full perfectly built tube frame. but I will just have to wait and see if I can win the lottery for that

    yeah really, lol maybe if hooked up and oxgen tank for me and filled the rest of the car helium... I guess thats the advantage of having hundreds of thousands of dollars to blow on a car built from scratch

    everyone will have an opinion. I will give warnings from this point forward for negative remarks. If it's not your taste that's fine but it is for the owner and others so try to keep negative remarks to yourself.

    hey Maxtenplus, did you run at the track the other week when I was out there? I have never seen that many people not beable to hookup. If only it would have been about ten degrees warmer.... I think I was hooking better on the streets up here around Chambersburg the night before trackday.
    Love the T/a, I'm the only one in the club that has American muscle,(unless you count my friend's supercharged Focus), If you see me out there again, stop by and say hey!

    yea it was shit for traction that day... all i could muster up in 3 passes was a 14 flat... i was hoping for mid 13s. I was gonna try to go up for the first street night but theres a cruise in thats taking priority. Im sure ill see ya up there at some point this summer though.
