Very clean mate... I've always had a sweet spot for the Thunders. Was thinking about getting one but the wifey said she wanted something I could put kids in the back of... :(

SO I got a 300rwkw+ R8 instead. :D rofl!

One question, i thought Thunders came with the binnacle gauges factory?

Very nice rig mate.

Yeah, the thunders where all 6.0L. The SSZ before them, basically the same car but with the 5.7, came with them factory.

You should look into getting some, finish of the interior nicely.
