Yes pictures are required if you post here by decree, especially if you don't post a price.....hehe Big Grin

I see you used a lot of Collector's Choice aftermarket parts. I hadn't realized their product line was quite so extensive and a quick web search turned up no website, do they have a catalog or anything one can refer to or is it a case one needs to call and discuss individual wants & requirements?

Yeah, it's not worth much, probably less than half what you spent on upgrades. But, I'm happy to help you out of whatever bind you find yourself in that would cause you to consider such an option. I'll offer you half of what you spent on upgrades for the car as is. Always glad to help a Pantera brother out!
