That'll be cool. Have you made an "executive decision" regarding the hood vent?

I'm getting frustrated from reading (your) frustrations. If the part is ready to ship and you've already paid-what's the hold-up? Last I saw the postman is still running.

Time's up.



Maybe the postman got lost ? (Yeah that is Kevin Costner,..and like the movie, this sucks)



Doesn't matter, been very patient, requested monies back immediatly (stay tuned) ,..... Dean and I are moving on.

He will be building me a custom setup.

Tony, that's sweet! I like that type of exhaust tips because of it's size. Reminds me of the Nissan GTR. Those tips are huge!

They will look even better once they are underneath a widebody rear bumper.

Ok, no tips yet but I hope to have them today. we did get the main part of the exhaust built yesterday. I need to go and get one flange to conect the header because I ran out of them.
once that is done we will be looking over the car and I hope to fire it tonight.
I will keep you all posted.

LOL! we did get it to fire yesterday but we have a bad fuel pump that we will be replacing today as soon as it gets here.
I was able to get the exhaust build and in the car, just waiting on the tips. we got the brakes bled.
today we are finishing up all the detail work like the sound deadner on the back wall as well as hopefully tuining the car this aftrenoon.
we were going to save this but Tony said to post them so I hope you all like it.

the car waiting for tips. yesterday we got the sound deadener installed on the inside fire wall and finished up a few other details.
we have a problem with the computer not liking the swap, it went in to lock down mode and will not let the car start so we will be hooking up the tuner this morning to unlock it and tune the car.
so if all goes well I should be driving the car up and down the street this aftrenoon.

the computer is from a bonnie and it locks out the injector pulse in theft mode.

we did not make it to Daytona with the car because of vendor isues but we did get the car to fire and run yesterday.
it had a bad crank sensor and the computor was locked in security mode. once we got that taken care of we got the car to start but ran into a nother isue that we will have to work on today.
the oil bypass spring is stuck and blew out the filter it is an easy but messy fix. the car should be running by this afternoon.

Tony and I have talked and the car will be staying with us a bit longer for test and tune as well as a few other things we talked about doing.

I have been working non stop the last few weeks and now I am being told that if I do not take time off this weekend to handle a few things with my wife that she is going to kill me
I will miss all of you at the show.

Got to meet up with a fellow choptop owner this past weekend at Daytona.

Ron is a really cool guy, with an absolutely stunning car.






....
His car looked so good it almost seduced me into chucking the widebody idea and just going stock,.........................................................................almost.
