On the outside the custom mixed paint includes the "GodSmack Sun" on the hood in "flip-flop" paint, changes colors as you walk around the front end, second hood is flat black and has the '64-'65 super stock Hemi hood scoop with faux hood pins. I'm sure I left something out, and it's never "done". Always adding, improving, etc some things to come : I have the correct console for this car, and also a "one of" shifter I made, which is a Hurst dualgate that I grafted an original e body pistol grip into... now I need to graft into the console.... The car "deputed" after about a eight year absence
