Steve, thanks for putting up those pics. I was going to post an update on the inner fenders, exhaust, and chin spoiler, until I realized our camera got left in Vegas, (don't worry, its getting shipped back). So as you guys can see, Best of Show has been busy making those 255s (and hopefully eventually 275s) turn lock to lock. I think they all agreed that the car HAD to be able to drive just the way it sat when it rolled in.

Customcam, by VC= valve covers, right? If so they're from nastyperformance.com

Stay tuned guys, the saga of opening up the quarter gills looks to be happening next.

Matt

Here are a couple more pictures that were taken over the last couple of weeks.

Before the inner fenders were nice and pretty, they looked like this:

And a couple of shots of the front chin spoiler, just about finished.




Just out of curiosity, what do you guys prefer for the chin spoiler, flat black, or brushed aluminum, with a clear powdercoat?

Nice project man. I really don't think those inner fender mods are going to help get you lock to lock at low ride height though. I always have problems on the lip not the inner fender.

I don't know about that. It looks like the lip has been modified in those pics.

That car looks insanely low. I love it. I can't wait to see more on this car.

I think it could go either way, depending on the offset of the wheel.

But since the car is together, I'm sure they've figured out if it works or not.
