This is a site built by a buddy of mine (StudioRhoad.com) to document the progress of my project 620 build that Iím doing. I hope I have the patience to continue adding and updating as I move further along with the project. I will also be blogging about general stuff in my life as I experience them. Feel free to check out my About page for more info and background.

Had to cut the inner fender almost all the way out for the strut towers.

The wheels stick out a little bit.
