Thanks everyone!! A friend of mine painted it and it's all paint, no wrap. I've known him since highschool and he's always been very artistic. Believe it or not, he's a plumber by trade.......
These pics were taken just before we went to Tucson in March and it looks even better in the sunlight. I'll take more pics this weekend and post 'em.
Once again, thanks for the compliments,
Johnny

No doors.......you just step over the body. Fortunately I'm 6' tall and have long legs. A short guy would need a step or risk snaggin' the boys.

My roots are in brackets, but I got this car to run Supergas. It's a killer bracket car though. I won the championship in our Superquick series with it last year and the Kind of the track race for a Wally last month. That race got rained out last year and rescheduled.

I've won championships before, but always in primer. I hope I didn't screw up by making it shiney!
Thanks!!

Nahhhh, you didn't screw up, that slick paint job will just make it faster!

P.S I knew it wasn't a wrap, that thing is waaaaaaaaaaay to shiny.

If it ever quits raining here (Memphis area) I'll get to race but it isnt looking good for today.


Goodluck at the next race!

Johnny, You might let your buddy know that he is no plumber, He is a painter for dam sure. I thought with the detail that it must have been a wrap. I don't think of a wrap as cheap though. A guy that does them here locally, paints clear coat over them, and they do look every bit like paint.
Yours is even better.

Thanks! It's by far the nicest looking car I've ever had. Here in Colorado, it run 8.60's-70's at 158 in 8000' air. The quickest it's run was in Tucson, 8.40 at 161 in 3800' air.....
