Yep, it is green, gives it more of a sleeper look.

Here is the Astro the parts came from. The green 98 Astro will be lowered front & back and have a cool stance.

finish center piece for over axle, still needs to be tack welded

I spent about 3 hours had sanding the roll bar, really sucked, looks awesome with fresh black paint

Yep, moving along really good, by end of this weekend, should be down to just a few things. The biggest thing, fuel cell, gonna have a custom tank made to fit in the very back, with a street rod fuel door in the body. Gonna be expensive, but will be cool and I wouldnt have to open back doors to fill up.
