An All Nighter With A Big Payoff

Let February 28th and March 1st, 2013 be a landmark 48 hours for this build and for the team at Carrera CoachWerks. Brandon (fellow maniac crewman from Arrowlane) joins the team to work round the clock to complete this car in time for a photo shoot tomorrow with Kit Car Builder Magazine. Failure is not an option. The whole assembly and Fabrication staff is on board and refusing to go home!

My CLS became the Rim/Tire pick up truck. Not for Hire!

And Chris wins on the exhaust. He designed it and Danny fab’d it. And it is PERFECT if not better. It is insane! Sounds like a formula car screaming down the pavement. The motor build is amazing. And now we all want to go home and go to sleep.

Heading into Paint

I can’t imagine painting another 550 in the same silver. I want to punch myself in the face. I know what I want to do. But getting it from my head onto the car is challenging. The body lines are gorgeous but it makes my stripes and Cup Car concept challenging. I have a whole new level of respect for the folks tasked with some of the new Porsche GT3 paint schemes.
