make a mount for the car seat then. Right where the back seat would normally be, just mount the car seat right there.

Right now when you hit the gas only one wheel is pushing the paper out. Even a burnout is one wheel. Adding a tlock will help launching. Windstar intake add about 10 hp I have a intake spacer and feel a bit more power. Also looking into a jmod if your a auto

Slosix also forgot to mention he has cut stock springs which add a much better look to our cars. They sit way to high from the factory

Haha all they had at my auto zone was 3 different kinds of grey, 2 shades of orange, 2 shades of red, yellow, blue, and green

I was surprise they had green so I bought it and it might not match my color exactly but should still look good but we will see!

I've seen a lot of pics of people that use the engine enamel and the caliper paint and they look exactly the same and of your going down the road no one will tell the diffeence anyways. Only thing is the amount of heat each can handle.
