Default This will make you see GREEN

Just having some fun with John O's beautiful Tri-State cobra body that sits on an incredibly well done FFR. John has had this cobra for a long time and it has been through many changes, his latest upgrade is an under-carriage exhaust and a new dual carb set up. I'm sure he will be posting some pictures soon. I applied some new paint for John but its the only thing he hasn’t done him self. If you get a chance check out his build you will not be disappointed

Jay this color would look soooooo right on that stang, Hey did you happen to notice in the last picture, thats one of your Backdrafts in the reflection having its hood plated in aluminum. I was showing a customer the door detail on your product, he said it just doesnt get better than that

Yup a 68 Mustang in that shade of green with American Torq Thrust wheels....Oh yeah, can you say Bullit? Hard to beat that look for anyone who has seen the movie. With how it looks on that Cobra I think I'd have Ron do the work as well. Sharp job man!
