Now it's the final stage vehicle is payed off. All work was done by me except were indicated otherwise.
3 months ago I had Bent Metal customs to the bodywork for me.Me and my friend Eddie had work together before he did the airbrush work on the original paint job.
New front end got from a wrecking yard online $175.00 shipped had to use a heat gun to take dent out and i filled license plate holes.

New rear end and custom dual exhaust.

Next up was the new paint. My favorite color is Green. Lambo Verde with my own little twist.I replaced the gold pearl with two-tone green.


I added carbon fiber to the interior along with a XBox 360 to place the PS2.





Once back together this was the end results after 3 months of work.


I entered it in its first show, last week it won Best Mopar/DSM in show.

For me I love the process of doing it more than the awards.I've been lucky to win a few over the years.Here's a short list of what was done to the body. Shaved hood,wipers,flatten gas door,shaved handles & locks,body moulding,Tinted all lights.Doors and trunk open by remote.






Thanks for looking at my PT Vert
