We tried not to pester Tim too much during the car's build as he only had just a few weeks to finish the car done and make it presentable for the 2009 Performance Racing Industry show in December of 2009. The paint was so fresh when we saw the car at the show that you could smell it. When Tim had to get something out of the trunk, the fumes almost knocked me down. It's safe to say the paint was still curing at the PRI show, but the car was a resounding hit, and we know everyone who saw it there will remember where they saw it for the first time. Tim, Johnny, Shane, and Bart Tobener from MV worked constantly on the car; Carnes Customs' Jason and Johnny Carnes, and James Brown worked on the car's paint when Tim and the MV crew weren't surrounding it. Many times they were almost tripping over each other trying to get the car done in time, but the hard work paid off for everyone involved. Now all Tim has to do is go out there and defend his championship. No pressure.
