It is. I had planned on orange from the gitgo. Then doubt, and back. Given I had a choice of any color.


As long as it was orange.

This is a awesome build and my inspiration to mine . I got mine finished but have major cooling issues . At hiw at speeds the airflow back drafts forward away from the radiator . Do you have a picture of the scoops you built and put on the trailing arms ? I would greatly appreciate it .

Thanks. Vin
