Update on the MassIVe 79 vert

Here's a view of the front windshield install.....Man what a PITA that was at 1am!

Here's the rear window install....part two! After the fiasco with the first attempt at painting the frames black, we decided to have them re-chromed. The silver paint is so bright that the chrome almost looks body color anyway :agree:

And here's a glimpse of the silver carbon fiber inserts for the dash :D

Here's the photo bucket link for anyone that wants to see more pics :)

Beth, bug windshields are a PITA anytime of the day, or night!

Back from Line X
The vert just came back to Jake's on the rollback after being at the Line X Shop for a week or so. Here's some pics.....

Look close and you'll see the MassIVe logo! ;)

A Few More....

Cannot wait to see the finished pics of your ride! With Jake's attention to detail and your influence on the style (not that Jake doesn't have his own certain "style" :D ), gonna be awesome!

Hey, does the linex stuff add any real weight? have a buddy that had his jeep done and was going on and on about all the extra weight it added... :confused: ??? He seemed convinced so I didn't argue, but really, it's a thin rubberized coating. Whats a couple pounds for the great benefits you get? (not really directed at you Beth, just anyone who was familiar with the stuff).

Thanks Panel! I think Jake and I have made a pretty good team during this whole build-up process.

Now, about the Line-X adding weight. Yes, it does add some weight.....though I'm not really sure how much. Of course, the vert weighs a friggin ton anyway. But, when you guys see what's under the decklid, you'll understand why a little extra weight won't really matter :raiseroof

Looks great. The sound damping effect will be good too. :agree:

Massive Type IV April 25th 2006 20:03

The line- X added about 50 pounds to the car, but we are not concerned with this car being a little "Heavy". Beth is going to drive the car as a primary vehicle, so it's important that it's quiet as possible inside and the Line -X is certainly very good at that! I had them lay it on very thick in the rear of the cabin and in the engine bay and another heavy does in the floor pans.

She'll have a ton of power to spare, even with the added weight...

Wait till you see what we have up our sleeves for this baby!

wrenchnride247 April 25th 2006 21:51

Looking sweeeeet! :D

Pillow April 25th 2006 22:19

Looking real good! I like the line-x.

I am sure power will be no problem. :)
