Painting the chassis and underbody again. My two yearly paint job still looks very good underneath so the painting does pay dividends.

Was planning a lift and such with the next few pay cheques. But that's on hold now since there are no more pay cheques >_>

Ugh, that blows.

On topic, I'm getting ready to take it for a nice, windows-down cruise before class. It's finally warm out, so I want to know how it sounds with the windows down when I wail on it.

Today?
More like all weekend.
was supposed to be a quick RC 3.5 f-r swap. Nope..
was working solo and seemed as is every third bolt I would remove would snap from being old and rusty.
beer breaks and working at my own pace, finally got it done.
Rear lca's took some brute force and a buddy to help me out
last pic is the front sway bar disco'd and about as high as my floor jack would go.
265/75/16 Mudders will be mounted sometime this week.

I want to get one of those or a samurai for a trail rig after I get rid of the zj and build a truck.

Oh guys I decided I'm getting a truck instead if a mustang now. Fits my needs better

Finished bedlining my cladding, bumpers and grill. I love the way it came out. Ripped out all the ****ty wiring for the aftermarket fogs she came with and started the re-wiring process. However I ran out of 10 gauge crimps so the rest will have to wait for now.

Took it for a nice cruise to enjoy the weather. It sounds so good with the windows down at WOT now too, and the afterfire when letting off just sounds flat out angry. Probably gonna take it out again in a little bit to re-aim my driving lights.
