    WOW--super looking car--I mean great job on the photos of the car--you really did a superb job on your build all the way through, even. You the crazy curve in the middle, but you recovered in no less than outstanding form--Prost!

    Love the way you whipped this baby together. Some of these last minute changes were quite shocking to me but you've really got a cool look going on. Love it! :inlove:

    Great photos as usual too. +you've made me feel lax in my polishing. Top notch work on that. :)

    I had missed the stopwatch placement, polishing of the salt caps, etc. Nice blend of polished and worn look. I like how your tank, seat, and bars/headlamp seem to be floating against that summer sky in your first pic.....
    This is my favorite pic in the bunch. Looks fast, tough, and sleek....

    Another solid KF build! Well done my friend! :41:

    Thanks buddy!
    This was my favorite photo too, but I wasn't sure if it showed the bike as well for voting.
    What do you think?

    As I said before, this is undeniably a Kingfish build! I could easily pick it out of a line up!:D Even with the setbacks and limited time, you've done it again! Congrats.
