    Really?! Maybe its a terrible pic because it looks to be drawn with magic marker. Once again prolly the camera along with this shitty computer screen. Also remember pinstripes going out with zoot suits but id like to see the whole thing installed to get the full effect. :biggthumpup:

    i'm not going to do it this time, you got it homie. it's by no means flawless but, as we all know, nothing is in my eyes. as far as the styling, that's gio's call not mine (although i think it will be dope). for reference, this is where the inspiration came from:

    the cream color is matched to the leather sample he gave me. lots more pieces to go still.

    the braubus is a lot less spacing between stripes. Can't wait to see what it looks like installed

    i think it looks that way because the pieces that are done are small. either way, the spacing was measured so that the stripes will align with the 430's ac vents.

    Holy shit! This is like WOW!

    I applaude your attention to detail and unwillingness to cut corners.

    Some people should take note:

    This how a build thread is done.
