    Well if you're stock prolly not. Just a helmet should be good.. Here if you run I think over 8-9 sec you have to have a 5 point harness, and sometimes even a roll cage..

    Alright, so here's some pictures of the car when the paint looked good.







    And one of the wheels, custom center caps a fellow member had made for me, anodized black and contrast cut the Pontiac arrowhead. The wheels are only peeling clearcoat on the polished lip, so perhaps I can save them with a bit of work/repolishing.



    Here's the car now. I dont have shoes on so I didnt go get a picture of the wheels currently.

    Yeah, exactly. I thought about a two-tone, doing a gunmetal grey on the top half of the car to cover up whats faded so bad, but in doing so, the bottom half will eventually suffer the same consequence. SO, I've gotta get it running again (crazy idle/richness issues) and once I get that figured out, I'll decide on a paint color. I'm thinking a darker metallic red, keeping it simple this time. 11 hours straight of just painting when we did the orange.
