All new & improved airgmh

Okay guys after getting rid of my pride and joy (yellow vlt) i thought i would purchase a car i have wanted since my dad had one back when i was 4 years old....the good old hq. I have spent over a year working on this car, prepping and painting and detailing the undercarriage. Prepping a painting the entire car aswell as completely redoing the interior and replacing every single seal, weather strip and trim i could. And proud to say that i have done everything on it myself (except apply the paint and build the driveline)

This car should hopefully be seen racing early 2011. Enjoy

Looks great!! What did you use to refinish the under carriage? In the fourth pic it looks like satin black powder coating. The body colour on the chassis looks good against the black wishbones.
