WORDs by GATO:
"I can't even begin to tell you how I feel about this project and how it all came together. the small details that were played in my mind over the months came to realization and to top it off just in time for Wek'fest show to take home 1st place Lexus. The feeling was unreal, not just to win, but to win on how this car turned out after months of sitting in the garage being pieced together slowly.
The richness of the leather and the patterns, the amazing finish on the wood grain, piecing together the OZ wheels, the perfect bbk color, the execution of the illuminated door sills, the electroluminescent headlights, the custom front and rear bumper...ect ect, the so far end result, was nothing short of my dreams that I had when building it in my head.
I learned alot by dealing with soo many diffrent businesses and vendors for this project, some good some bad. Not sure if Im looking forward to it again, but Hey, this is what I do, and your sure to see another project come out of me when this one is gone.
there is still some unfinished business for the car that will follow. I will take a small break for now and see everyone in 2012.
The most special recognition for this build goes out to my wife B for her support in my love for the VIP game. she has actually enjoyed the last few months on the build and was actually following the build thread http://www.vipstylecars.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=26034 and reading everyone's comments! (we took out the LS Saturday for her bday and hit the club scene lol.)
big props to Jun Lu with the amazing photograph skills and friendship, William @ Futura Design brakes http://www.futurabrakes.com/ ,the whole Refined elegance family http://refinedelegance.net/ Joe, Khan, cheet and the rest of the crew for the support and Mike at original garage for seeing and believing in my visions and coming thru like a big dog.
