Very nice, my friend!
Car looks great and quite an impressive list of upgrades!
Although I never had the opportunity to deal with Turbo Lou, his reputation is second to none.
Now take Her out and enjoy it!

Very nice! Always been partial to the WE4's. Clean lines and no frills. I attached a shot of my wannabe WE4. It came with the chrome package but I'm slowly "de-chroming" her. Still undecided if I'll powder coat the bumpers black.
