"PROJECT EVOLUTION" (The Movie)

I felt it was hard to get a feel for the project through pictures, so I decided to make a 20 min guided tour of the progress up to this point.
Here are 4 movie clips of the project. It's a little shaky, seeing I had to crawl around and hold the cam. Mabe the next video, I can talk someone into holding the cam while I describe the situation.

Enjoy

That's funny, I never looked at it that way.
You can be the camera man next time.

Ya know I've followed the whole thread, and have seen all that you've done to it, and then watching the video shocks me some more...I guess seeing it all at once "all this has been replaced" etc shows the magnitude of it better. I can't count how many times you said "replaced" LOL. Looks great. That thing is gonna be absolutely bitchin' when it's done, especially with H.O. and all the other goodies. :cool:

I think, i've got enough balls to try to pull off black. It will definitely show off the quality of the body work. The whole car is getting stripped, primed and blocked anyway.

Besides, those silver turbines will be killer on a black car
