My good friend Justin had introduced me Erik (very stand up guy)who sold me the Funco that was all original minus the LS3 swap. After my very season I decided to take it a part and do a makeover. This is what it looked like when I took possession.

Right after the first season I decided to go through the whole thing. Took it to our guy Jason who had already done the windshield for me. I named him Picasso after the work was done. Less then a month later

We figured it takes about 150 hours to get everything back together. Maybe less if it’s not your first time.

Turns out the case on my 2D is cracked on the inside near the main shaft. Apparently no cases were available. Yet again some good friends came through with a new case.

I bet your very happy with the new seats. The Jet Trim lay back and just fit that car the way it should be.
