Yes the car at the beginning is the same as the other build pics so that is the paint job. The siding is aluminum, which I burnished with a grinder in a flame pattern prior to painting a candy apple over the top. The result is a flame patern that realy jumps out at you in the sun light. The pictures don't do it justice.

The front end set up is as follows. The front end is raked so I have 10 degrees built in castor, and the camber is progressive from 1 degree at full droop to 6 degrees at fulll compression. At ride height the camber is roughly 2 degrees I believe. I have measured the amount of bump steer and it is about .5 degrees. I have had it at the dunes and going 80 miles/hr over the woops the bump steer was vertually undetectable. I guess I got luck there. No actualy I followed some guidlines that I found during my research in order to minimize it, and it worked out for me.

I hope that helps...let me know if you have other questions.
