Yes that is true, but it seems like ive been seeing alot of gold BBS wheels lately. I have a feeling you could rock something other than gold. Maybe Gunmetal? Gloss White?

Are you doing the engine bay in body color? Are you keeping the quad rectangle headlights? You wanna do the headlights on a seperate high power relay.. I'm thinking you're gonna need a sh!t ton of light.. It's pretty easy to outdrive your headlights with 800hp.

The difference here is that he's paying someone 'get **** done'. Not saying there's anything wrong with that, it's his money.

Side note. I DONT HAVE ANY $! I'm broke as a joke being a self-employed house owner. I do however have a ton of friends that are helping me... FOR FREE. Sponsors are hooking me up as well. Otherwise I've done more work on this car than anyone. Ever.

Actually, sponsors are paying to get it done. And considering that he did most (all?) of the work to get it to the recognition point of getting sponsors is amazing.

Keep it up, Dug! The whole freaking world is watching.
