Got any pictures? I couldn't remember if we had talked about your car previously.

That's a rough drive, I work in Commerce City as well but I don't have a bad drive to get to work

Ya, I'll get some once I'm done with the install. Right now it's several different colors from an accident about 10 years ago and it hasn't been resprayed since then. But it's getting flat black rattle can soon enough so it's at least one color.

Yes, plus all the bushings in the irs, MM tie rods and adjustable swaybar endlinks for the irs. Front is already done with MM K-member kit. Also have an adjustable rear tower bar going in.

Chambered. I had magnapack on it with the straight axle and will switch them out at some point for the packs again.

Those don't happen to be 4" Bassani tips now? That would be one hell of a coincidence if they are.

Let me know when you swap them out, I might have to take the chambered mufflers off your hands.

If I get the cash at some point I might have to pick this up off of you.

No they are magnaflow tips. Not sure if they are 3 1/2 or 4 inch. But if you want make me an offer on the phb. They go for $380ish from MM.

Ok good, I thought I would have to hunt down the owner of my old car and kick his ***.

I'll keep that in mind, but I'm not in any sort of position to be buying anything right now. I gotta get some other parts sold first.

No doubt. Just let me know and it's yours if I haven't sold it by then. And we could work out pricing then as well.

this is what she's looking like now until I can get her sprayed with something. For now just planning on flat black rattle can so she's one color. Plus I like flat black. Haven't gotten ride height set yet though.

And yes it's a power sunroof that was a dealer item as far as I know or maybe custom order from the factory. I haven't seen any more like it since I've owned the car which is about 10 years now.

You could always plastidip it. That doesn't look too bad though, it should be quite fun to toss around a track.

I've seen one other sunroof (on here) and it was done by an aftermarket shop

Ya, I thought about plastidip but I'm just not sure about it yet. Saw some on a set of wheels a while back and wasn't too impressed but it may have been the person that did the application. And Ya I can't wait to actually toss it around. Got my subscription for free bama tunes for life today so I can get a tune for my cat deletes n stuff.

It looks like a decent flat black when it's new, after some time it starts to lost its sheen though.

Ya. Nice thing about rattle can for now though is it's not too expensive to sand down a bit and reapply another coat.

Good news! That ****ing bolt is finally out!!

2 hours and $390 later...

In case anybody was wondering why Snap-on tools are so expensive, my 15mm Snap-on socket grabbed the head of that bolt and my 15mm Pittsburgh (Harbor Freight brand) socket would just slip. The bolt hole on the header is wallowed out a bit now, hopefully it's not bad enough to ruin any possible chance of reselling the pair.

Plans for repaint are when I have money to do it good. And when I have time and a shop to do it myself.

Fair enough, paint work is one of the few things I do not trust myself to do.

Ya, never done anything major but I'll learn. I've done wet sanding and stuff on cars before so that's no biggie just takes time.

It looks like you already have it pretty much tore down!

What's next?
