THANKS: There have been a cou­ple of ma­jor peo­ple that sup­ported me through this build; Blake (Cany) and Ben­nie (MB Fab­worx) of Cany Cus­toms for the flaw­less panel and paint work — se­ri­ous time and ef­fort went into the look we were go­ing for; Blake, again, for the drive to build this; Daniel Cowie for the awe­some in­te­rior job; Dean at Elite Wheels for the awe­some fin­ish­ing work on the wheels; Dave and the boys at Elite Pow­der Coaters for all the pow­der work; Jeremy at Har­ris Auto Elec­tri­cal and Per­for­mance for all the elec­tri­cal work (and tidy­ing my f*ck ups); Nick at NST for get­ting me all sorts of gen­uine parts; the boys at ChaChaCha; Marty for let­ting me slack when need be; Alex Brown at Moon­light Rac­ing for sourc­ing the kit; Fal­goon and the boys at Speed­mag­net for giv­ing me the op­por­tu­nity to show this car around the coun­try; and to all the other peo­ple who have helped and chipped in along the way, it’s all the lit­tle things that help. Last, but most im­por­tantly, to Haylie, my ever-sup­port­ive fi­ancée — she kind of just lets me roll with the crazy ideas and they al­ways pull through — and Paige, my daugh­ter, for con­stantly mis­plac­ing the 10mm socket in the garage … kids love hide and seek, huh?
