"Your my heeero FERRIS"

What the HELL Brent, after personally seeing your shock towers I had to do something a little more to mine. You are making me do more work!

Now, I definitely did NOT go to the extreme that you have done.

(I used 80% gloss level paint)

Wow, the engine bay looks great. Sometimes it's hard to see all that was done till you look at a near stock example next to it.

Keep up the good work and progress pics.

^^Thanks Jim....in all my spare time waiting for the 'good stuff', the old hat-rack keeps comin up with new crap.

Almost forgot! Picked up a radiator up from another member here. It was plain!!! Can't have that...so one of my accomplices put it to a buffer!




Didn't like the way the car sat up front on the Eibachs when it did run. Fixed that problem too....knocked off about 3/4 of a coil.

You suck regarding 2 of your 3 statements. I'm sure you can figure it out....

Lol, wife said tonight..."is it strange we know the FedEx and UPS guys by their first name?"

I know exactly which 2 statements! That's funny about UPS/FEDEX... Now if they start coming over for dinner you may have a problem!

I'm laughing about the FedEx/UPS statement as well. My guys now laugh and ask me what I'm doing to the car these days when they drop off stuff.

Thanks James! It's not cheap, but it's relative to the quality. Roger would be a better source for that info

The accessories I (we) have planned around them will really set it off

Still waiting for the new bullet, so my spare time has been spent figuring what else I can do while everything's apart.
