The grill assembly went in fairly easily. I managed to get everything in without scratching the paint. The center grill bar lined up with the right and left extensions and it looks good. Tomorrow I'll get the bumper and splitter together.

The splitter was an easy install, but it took a while to adjust everything.

They do great work and keep their prices fair. They're very familiar with what show and custom builders are looking for.

At my work we send everything to Sherman's in Sacramento California (we are in SoCal). Almost every car we do ends up at pebble Beach at some point.

Yours looks great, I've been following your build closely as I want to do a car that was rendered by the same guy you had. I still need to talk to him about someother angles as I've only seen the profile of the car I want to do.

Ray can do all views; front, rear, side, 3/4front, 3/4rear, etc. Sometimes he'll add his own touches for your approval. For me, less is more but I didn't stop him. Actually, I think the wrap around windshield might have been his idea. I don't remember for sure but as you progress, he seems to get a feel for what you want. Once that happens, things move pretty quickly.

Mike, I talked to Ray a few days ago. I gave him your email address.
