How to Build a Muscle Car - Detail

Once your car is back from paint, and all the parts are ready and waiting to be bolted on, it’s very motivating. You're almost to the finish line, but you need to remember that detail catches the public's eye. Take the time to hide air-conditioning hoses and miscellaneous wiring whenever possible. Pick a theme and stick with it — too much chrome and it’s hard to look at, but the right amount of brushed, chromed, and painted parts has the “wow” factor. Your interior should also be installed at this point, and we always recommend a stock interior in black. Detail is VERY important in putting your car back together.
