And today, I filled her up with gas, that was actually under $3 per gallon.
All week this gas station has been going down, started at 3.09, then 3.05, 3.01, and when I went this morning, it was 2.99....

they're not really bent out much, but they are a little wider than the hood...

I'm also hoping the stinger may keep the hood off the ground a little...


the "plan" is to run the tubing from the sliders (cut the cap off, sleeve it internally, so it appears seamless) around the comp corners and tie into the ends of the bumper...

you can kinda see where I'm talking about in these two pics, where the tube from the coilover mount hits the rear bumper (which is also the rear crossmember):






some of the pics aren't showing up for me...not sure if it's my work firewall, or the hosting company is having some problems right now...oh well...

Thunderstorms for the next few days... had to put the top & doors back on

And I found out Monday that even in pooring rain, I wont get wet with the windows out & doors off as long as the top is up and I'm moving forward!

Installed a Magnaflow cat conv. and the Banks Monster exhaust cat back system. A tad loud, but it has an awesome, deep tone.

Tore my short arm kit off, fitted up the new RE long arm belly pan, cut all my control arm mounts off both the frame and the axles, welded new brackets to the axles, reinforced them, painted them, put the front axle in and assembled the tri link rear.
