    beautiful paint job.
    Maybe its the picture or just me but it kinda looks more on the orange side then red.
    Did you do it yourself? spray gun or spray can?
    Also nice job on the wiring.

    The overall look is nice,, but I see allot of orange peel, do you plan on fixing it,, If not,, it's still a good mod & has a really nice look to it.
