Yes "Wise Guy Customs" is a small biz that is just getting started. He's actually my friend and does great work. So what if it's in his garage at his house? It's free and he has been doing paint work his whole life. He is trying to leave his 9-5 job (at the local body shop) and start his own biz... and hey, did I mention it's FREE?!

My friend painted/built his bosses 56 F100 in his 3 car garage. It won the truck class at The Oakland Roadster Show against names like Foose, Boyd, etc. Some of the nicest stuff I've seen comes out of garages.

wow you did every volvo owner proud, even with a non-volvo engine, its still in keeping with a lot of the subtle things we appreciate. good job, i like the vids I've seen also. Subtle isn't what I'd call melting the rear wheels with all this power, but you know what I mean

I've essentially detailed/restored/modified cars for a living for the last 20 years. It can be cleaned, but it won't be fun.

Most things can be cleaned. Not all of them are fun.

I think Pat's point is it would have been a ****load less work to properly strip or mask the car to begin with and not store the rest of the interior IN the car whilst you proceed to sand and paint it.

Quick question: with the roll cage built in, is your brick going to have a full set of rear seats and functioning rear pair of doors? If so, this is an awesome idea for my future project

Just make sure everyone always wears helmets whenever they ride in your car.
