I have instructed SWMBO that however sad my 107 might be, if it ever gets "Foosified", I will light it afire as the cameras are rolling.

Actually you're still correct. They tear it down and order parts and paint from others. Their touching of the mechanicals consists solely of them removing and replacing components, not actually doing anything with them. Then Foose throws on some giant-ass expensive wheels, sketches some decals or paint, sponsors pay for it all and everyone goes home happy. Last one I saw I was trapped on an airplane and it was the best thing on. The episode was them messing with a 68 RS Camaro, they had this custom builder (contractor of course) do his magic with the engine. When they went to start it, coolant was pouring from everywhere (I mean pouring). They don't tell you what they did, but that's real quality work right there.

Like I said, it's just like American Chopper. Buy parts, do a couple of customizing things, beat it together, call it a wrap.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

So I guess Pimp My Ride is a no no on this forum...

I can tell the paint is about to oxidize at any given time. Don't get me wrong, you did a awesome job for painting it your self. To the average eye that paint job is sweet, but I can tell its thin. In any event thats a sweet sweet ride, I love the rims. Any brakes, suspension upgrades, engine upgrades, don't post this sweet ride with out details.
