Way too excited, had to share

I finally have some time to work on it.

Should have the power disc brake conversion, and the rear end done by Wed.

Sunday I will be dropping in the new power plant

List of mods include, but are not limited to.

400 hp 383 Stroker w/ serpentine kit and underdrive pulleys
350 turbo
BIG ASS 4 core radiator
160 amp alternator
painless wiring harness (should be named pain in the ass wiring harness)
Power disc brakes
power steering conversion
Radial white walls (sorry but I have to be able to drive it)
custom interior
Insane sound system complete with roof mounted indoor outdoor speakers and subs, slot ported through the floor.
too many lights to list
Digital sound and lighting compact flash show controller
3 yellow top optimas

I'm going for the rat rod look for now, but I will eventually work the body to perfection and rechrome all of the bling. Possible fuel injection next year, if the wife doesn't freak about what I have already spent.

Thanks! and I think so, but not sure what to do yet. Believe it or not I really like the flat black, the picture doesn't really do it justice, cat prints and dust all over it. I have always liked rat rods and the flat black really stands out in a sea of grocery getters. I'm looking into illuminated graphics, possibly a full wrap, just can't decide.

I love this thing, I too am into the flat black. I want one bad maybe one day when I get my kids through college.
