Please read on for more particulars of the car:
Body/Paint: The body work and modes are numerous, but one of the most impressive is the steel custom made convertible top boot. Made with three pieces of steel with the center section using the bottom section of a trunk lid off a donor car. The two side pieces are left and right quarter fins of the same donor car. The body work in extremely well done. Dereck Hall of OCD Customs did many of the metal work modes, which he is very well known for. Paint is over the top base/clear House of Kolor custom blend by Marcos Garcia.
Power Top: The power top is a beautiful tan cloth material that has rarely been up since the car was completed due to the car showing so nice with the top down. Color matched to the interior.
