Further Description/Back Story Started as a dr10 kit and build from the ground up. Everything is custom. From the tires all the way to the body. Everything on the body is painted. All the chrome bumpers, window trim, hood lettering, checkered flag, stripes, and red chrome side lettering are all done in paint. The red color on top is a custom color I came up with my self that involves 4 separate paint colors. The body has been toped off with a beautiful pearl flake over the reds, whites, and greys.
