    Hi, My Name is Don Simpson. I am 41yo; I made my rig about 6 years ago. It's a Racebase R6 Mk II, bought the plans straight from the company, when it was still in business, took me 3 months to finish and I had it professionally painted by an Auto body and Paint Shop. I was at the fence in figuring out what color to paint it when my Dad passed away when I was in the middle of making it. When that happened, I decided to paint the exact color of my dadís drag car that he used to race on the weekends. My dad drove a 1968 Dodge Cornet R/T, 440 Block, no six-pack, changed the Cam Shafts and Crank Shaft and he was running 11.9ís in the Quarter Mile. It does not seem like much in todayís standards, but in the 1970ís, it was impressive. Anyways, I was in the process of building the rig, when I had some grave news. My Father had passed away. After my grieving of his passing, I decided to paint the main color of my rig like my dadís Cornet. The flames are not just black flames. It is paint from House of Kolor called Silver Marblizer. You spray the Silver Marblizer on when the black paint is partially wet and before the paint is dry, you dab the paint with a hand size ball of plastic wrap, which gives you a marble effect. The whole process took total 3 months that includes my days off and my off time. About 3 years ago, I finally had the seat cushions completed. It wasnít white leather like my the seats in my dadís car, but the color of the rig itself is my way of paying tribute to a happy time in our family.
