Absolutely do intend on chroming the tips for now.

We didn't do much of anything to the powertrain, car only had 40k miles on it and still ran like brand new... we figure when something inevitably happens to the motor/transmission, we'll be doing some sort of modest but updated swap... thinking a 350 ramjet (fuel injected) as of now....

But a few more dress up bits like yes, the chromed tips are in the works...

Anyone got any suggestions on which ones to do or where to get some?

cant be posting my lowly viper, sl55, corvette, and camaros next to enzos, mc12, carrera gt, and such.


all those cars i posted in this thread are either sold or belong to my dad..so they would never make it in MY garage post. I dont got much but what i got...I got.
