Thanks Jimmy. Trying to use what I learned over 27 years on the Malibu as well as advancing my skills over that time to make this car even better.

But the quality and work on this is no different than any other car we build for customers.

Stock shock towers as the class I run requires bolt on factory style suspension.

I work for a shop in Maryland called HFR Fabrication.
