This.

Looks like a great build but must be stiffer than a pedo in a playground.

You mean you don't drive around all the time with a black helmet, gloves and racing suite.

I believe they outsource the work to a shop in Irvine near Lake Forest.
They are right across from R's Tuning in the same complex.
You can see lots of cars being done there along with GMG cars on occasion.

Because GMG! They do awesome work.

This car is only not street legal because it is catless.

Oh, and because the DOT reflectors are painted over and the tint. ;-)

Thanks.
I'm guessing it would be cheaper to just go to him directy??
That looks like a serious cage he built.

Great build!!! Looks fantastic.

Please don't ever drive this car on the street, even the slightest accident would result in serious head trauma without a helmet...Im a MD and have actually seen it first hand.
