Finally got it on the ground. It looks awesome. Only had to adjust the rear twice to get the right hight. With the front air shock empty night owl sits 1 1/2” off the ground. The back sits 5 “ off the ground with a static drop. Can’t wait to get the body work finished and get it plumbed and wires so I can drive it.

Haven’t been posting much the past year because I’ve been busy with this project.
This was one of the toughest, most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had. I couldn’t have done it without my Queen @dabeastcbd 👑
Owner: @jonmangee Man I love this page simply because I have the opportunity to represent you guys on the East Coast and badass rigs like this Silverado makes it easy to keep it rolling. If anyone of one of you could have this beauty right now what would you change??? I’ll start... Nothing! 🔥🔥🔥🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

I wanted to share a more detailed breakdown of what I changed on Zelda.
Dress: * The first dress was a cut up, stretchy jersey fabric from a wish.com dress. It was terrible to sew and handle and too short. I replaced it with some twill satin fabric.
* Changed the purple trim to gold to be more accurate. You can't see it in these photos but in a full body photo you'll see the trim on the edge of the dress.
* Found a purple dress on amazon to modify that was more accurate in color, better fitting, and lighter weight. The stitching on it is better and I didn't cut too high on it like I did with the first one.
* Made new vinyl cut models for the swirly bits on the bottom of the dress.
* Learned how to do box pleats and used those instead of a circle skirt. Hugs my frame and looks much better! It was the most sewing I've done for a project and I'm very happy with it.
Armor: * These are self designed in 3D cad and 3D printed.
* Reduced the size of the print to 80% of the original and did some geometric changes for fitment. Reduced the mass of the armor from 6lbs to 3.5lbs.
* Changed the material from PLA to ABS
* Changed painting method - I'll be repainting these, but it looks loads better.
Customer Tim W. from Perth sent us these photos of the Mk4 Roadster he built. Tim started his build in 2010, and registered the car while still in gel coat, driving around like that until he decided to paint the body this year.
Tim built his Roadster with an LS3, Tremec 6-speed transmission, 8.8” rear end, American Racing Wheels, and painted it in a custom dark blue.
