Well, it took me long enough. I received my kit in March of 2005 and finished (well, mostly) my car in August 2009. It's taken me a while to post my graduation thread because I've been driving the heck out of the car - 2800 miles - and enjoying every minute!

Thank yous - To my wife for putting up with me during the entire build. To my twin sons Paul & Ross - I couldn't have done it without all of your help. To my friend Dan - muscle, welder, parts supplier, tool supplier, and all around go to guy for information and knowledge.
And a big thank you to this forum. Although I didn't post a lot, I spent a lot of hours learning from all of you.

A few details about the car:
- Color - Hot rod yellow pearl (2006 Honda Goldwing)
- Engine - new 302, World Products Rousch heads, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, Holly 670 Street Avenger Carb, March pulleys, MSD ignition and distributor.
- Levy T-5
- 8.8 rear with 3.55's
- GAS-N pipes

I love this car! Mike

I love the pictures! Another example of fine Minnesota craftmanship! Hope you got all the bugs worked out, and hope to see you and Dan at the Frozen Snot Run, hopfully we can get a date set before the snow flys.
Best Regards,

Hey Phil, thanks, good to hear from you! We're really hoping we can do the FSR. Keep us posted.

Guys, thanks for all the great compliments. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying this car. The pictures don't show the true beauty of this color. The pearl really pops in the sun. I'll try to post a picture that show the pearl.

Thanks again, Mike
