there is no south of Enterprise ...until you get to Dothan.

unless you don't blink, then you might catch level plains, and the turnoff into daleville/ft. rucker.

Big words? Not even close. I was raised in Dothan City Schools. You were raised south of Enterprise where they only worry about farming.

haha sorry I gotta pick on ya, its all in fun. Yea, boring day at work. I get to go around and measure more Hardee's next week . But it's easy over-time work.

Yeah I know man giving ya ****. I was talking to my stepmom earlier today and she said theres a GM/Pontiac dealer that does custom painting.(I believe in enterprise) But shes gunna ask about pricing a color change to SOM. I'm guessing for a good job it will be over 3 grand. But shes also gunna see how much it is just for NBM redone. Update on to wht im doing though. I am most likel going to buy a 402 Shortblock and all supportings parts that I can't pull of my LS1. So I'll have to look around for shops that can do that. I'm gunna have her give that Pilcher auto a call and see what they would charge to do the swap(if they can)

Yea thread hi-jacking is fun... too bad some always has to come and bring it back on topic....

I have no clue what stealership you are talkin about around here to do custom painting. There are several good shops around but I dunno about the ones at the chevy or pontiac places. I cut out the middle man and we did my paint ourself

Not sure what dealer it is. I didn't really ask to much about it cause she said that she would pay to get the car repainted. I would love to learn how to paint but I nor anyone I know has the knowledged, equipment, or place to do it so it kinda has to be done by a middleman, The same goes for doing the 402 swap

As we've discussed in other threads, no one around here ever does anything car wise. But then someone pointed out thats impossible because there's rarely a time when everyone's car is running at the same time!

Enterprise isnt a bad town. Its changed a lot in the past few months. Class of 06 huh? Who's your sister? I graduated from there in 04.
