And another 5 word update would be "it appears to be painted"
Hoping it'll be ready for the Mitty

Is that white pearl? White's a good 'colour' if one intends to use the car, doesn't show the dirt.
Not so good on the engine, there I prefer a colour known as Olde Oil. lol

So all the weight is on it now? The ride height seems pretty good.

I like the shaved look. Shame one needs door handles...

I don't. I quite like the look of the door handles as fitted.
The rest of the trim is staying off though.

Alan,
That video gets my heart racing! I like it lots.
Todd is doing a Fab job of Fitting your ride. Maybe I should make Mitty plans. We could swap cars again......

Ken, if you make it down of course we can swap cars. I for one would love a side by side comparison.
If not try to get to the TRials in Michigan and we will do it there instead.
