Very, very NICE! I bet that black paint keeps you busy. :) What size are those BF Goodrich tires? I need a set of RWL tires on my Spirit AMX and it seems 14" tires are getting hard to find.

Thank you guys!

It is injected.  That was the whole point of the engine project.

I just added the foglights, as you can see, the boss approves!

Gives it a little bit of a rake and helps the proportions of the car overall.

Wow, nice work! That's a great looking Spirit. I'm running 235/60-14's on those wheels for the Concord.
