Everything has been stripped down DB40lf epoxy primed, then any body work was done, top coated with PPGs K36 anti corrosive primer, wet block sanded, so all panels are straight as can be!

Professional standard and professionally done.I've been in the business for almost 10 years and I've been a full time painter and refinisher for the past 6 years. I run and manage a paint shop in Natick, Massachusetts so this was not a at home garage build.

This is a great car. I've been driving it on the road since it has been finished. This is the perfect car for a monsterous power plant such as the new 5.0 fuel injected Coyote motor, 347 strocker, 351w, or even a big block. Matched up to a termac trans and a locking rear end or just leave it the way it is and hit the road! Enjoy weekend cruises, days on the track or as a daily. This car is a blast to drive!
Happy bidding Matt
