When I first started my project, I sketched up a thought process for the build....At this point I'm staying pretty true to my plan. I have the rear sunroof in, the front one in a box awaiting install when the roof is fixed, and the sidepipes mounted. I still plan on bright orange, even though I haven't "filled in" the rest of the sketch. I'm contemplating "real fire" flames on the nose as well. I changed gears and put Cragar SS wheels instead of the sketched "Shelby Cobra" style wheels. I would still love to do or have the mural done to mimic "Forgotten Island of Santosha" movie poster, but I don't know whether my budget will allow it or not. Perhaps a vinyl install would work.....

"True Fire" is the airbrush technique developed by Mike Lavallee of Killer Paint. Mike passed away earlier this year. Lots of guys out there doing his method. Mike painted my challenger.
