Default The Mad Scientist says "MAX POWER AT THE LAB!!"

So after several weeks of behind the scenes work the Legend itself made it to the lab for its "proceedure"! This is going to be quite the experience I'm sure but its our goal to show off the skills of Jonslegend and the insane vision of yours truly. So we're looking at THREE major phases in the build and so the first is to get all the mechanicals in working order. I intend to do the suspension augmentation as well as the exhaust system upgrade as portions of that first phase. So anyway I'm sure you guys have seen builds before so I'll just give you a few pics and highlights along the way. So anyway the Mad Scientist hopes you enjoy the ride along with him.



Yeah I think I got my money's worth out of the original... EVERYTHING

Say goodbye to the old...

Incoming upgrades...





Hmm looks like one of my goodies is making an announcement...

Sorry the lab isn't as cool as the "Greek Tent". I'll have to allow the Wrenchman to display how much or how little of the lab as its officially his.

Since I've been given a number of comparisons to Greek about "when will your car be done" our goal is to shave a considerable amount of time off this build (yeah, yeah Lou I may not have all these goodies that you have blah, blah blah ) AND bring it out for display at an actual meet.

I've got all kinds of pics of things I've done for Phase II already so I'm forcing myself to show progress on the car itself as its done in an orderly fashion.
