No ****....those ****ers are rare.

I do like being the only redfire vert in town though. Although, I heard there is a new one recently...but I haven't seen it. Only ones I have seen are from shreveport and hammond...none in the area. Besides, everyone in town knows me by my car now...most have been scared by the exhaust a time or two by now.

Re: Winterized!

Well, since the windows were up...it wouldn't be me....plus, it was at a shell, that definitely wouldn't be me.

Re: Winterized!

Pics added.

didnt get all the swirls out i had hoped for but its definately a vast improvement. Maybe i will spend more time on that part of the process during the "springerizing" or "summerizing" of the car, maybe hit it up with some SSR2.5 and then SSR2.0 on some of the upper surfaces (hood, roof, trunklid).
