Eric Collins of Final Finish Auto Body in Reno, NV applied the House of Kolors Kandy Lime Gold and custom black paint. They also laid down the crinkle finish graphics that run along the rear of the car. The final touch was the addition of blacked out 7" headlights. The smooth treatment continues inside as the entire dash was smoothed of all holes, vents and glove box lid. Autometer carbon fiber gauges were added in a Covens gauge insert.
