Wow that's awesome! I like the vette wheels and the color! The whole car is very nice. You've pretty much accomplished what I'm after.

Yeah, I didn't pay it any attention. Building a V8 bug isn't any different than build a t-bucket in my opinion. Just a different body. Hopefully by the end of the year I'll have mine finished. Hopefully.
