When Dave says it's done. The current effort is directed to finalizing the design of the electrical cable from the ECM to the motor. Since he is using Punisher as the development / test bed for the final design, he is taking his time to build design documentation as he fans the parts needed so the result will be production ready. When he gave me the last update he was waiting on delivery of some connecters.

I am guessing another two weeks.

I know you are looking forward to the final product and we know DDM will deliver a product second to none ... looking forward to seeing it in Austin.

Gauge Cluster First Pictures

While waiting for Dave to send Punisher home, I have been working on the Black Cat Custom gauge cluster design that Alex created for Punisher.

It is blacked out, so the numbers do not show when the lights are off at a show. But he also found super bright LEDs (orange of course) that light them up when on. Here it is waiting to go back into the car.


Thanks Alex, it looks great!

Painted Tails

I did not want to waste an opportunity . . . . so I got my cutting wheel out and disassembled my spare set of tail lights. Joey painted the front portion, above the lights, black with flames to match the stripes. Then he painted the rear portion Punisher red with the logo. I have one side reassembled but no pics yet.

My perliminary testing shows that the spiderlights fully illuminate the punsher logo through the red outer plastic quite nicely.

From some angles your paint almost looks anodized or chromed. Very cool.

Mine - '08 Brazen GXP. GMPP tune, Magnaflow exhaust, DDM backbone and brace, rear Z0K sway bar, Eiback springs, debadged, 19" MODA1 wheels.

Hers - '08 Bluestone Redline. GMPP tune, Magnaflow exhaust, DDM backbone, debadged (mostly).

Too Cool

I don't know Rob..this may be too cool for a Tanker. You might have to put on your Stetson and spurs before you drive this beauty... even though the 'Punisher' concept is kind of appropriate for an Armor guy!

"A knuckle draggin', prominent brow ridge, Combat Arms type.."

EnviousSolstice, Monsoon,6 CD changer, cruise, chrome wheels,XM,two-tone leather - and an Army logo sticker on the back..

The paint changes color with the light. Bright full sun makes it look copper. Some sun turns it bright red. The high reflectivity is due to 5-7 coats of Jeffs spray on clear bra. It is so thick that you can see the depth when up close.
