Thought i would share the end results with everyone on the World. Many of you have helped me source parts to complete this car. A special thanks to Jim, Kent & Bob for finishing the assembly over the last couple months. I'm stoked on the end results and couldn't be happier. These guys know these cars inside and out.

Also a Big thanks to Scott and the guys over at 914Rubber for all your help

Time to enjoy it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif)

Congratulations Wayne! Jim, Kent and Bob definitely know their stuff. They are masters when it comes to our little cars. I hope you will now drive the heck out of it so people can enjoy seeing a BumbleBee in the wild. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smilie_pokal.gif)

They look good low. I saw it in person the last time I was at Jim's and thought it was low then. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I love the stance also however that was me just eye balling it. It goes to Alignment next week so we'll see what Darin at West End can do. I like it lower but not sure if he can keep it this low. I have Bilstein Sports on all 4 corners. I'll post a finished stance phote when it's done.
