Yeah, a lot of people don't like it simply because it's "brush-on". Never gave me any problems so far... Try it.

Sounds like a dark, twisted plan on your buyer's part.... But I like the sound of it!

Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

H pipe + flowmaster40 OR if the budget is a little tight... Thrush Welds... They're like Flowmaster knockoffs. ALMOST creates the same sound quality.

Don't go to a big exhaust place... They'll rip you off big time. I had mine done at a small shop, paid $170-ish for my duals... But then again I had a GT take-off H-pipe and Flowmasters already... Don't rush getting it done... Shop around.

Ruin my paint on the hood. Was in a hurry and went to one of those power washer car washes and used the brush.. It looks like someone took 1000 grit sand paper too my hood.

Nice! I dip'd my stockers too a few weeks back... Also got hub-centric 1.5 wheel adapters for the rear wheels for a wider rear look... Something you might want to consider if your not getting new wheels just yet...

The spacers are perfect.. IMO if you're sticking with a stock v6 wheel those spacers are pretty much necessary. Fender gap is BAD

I love the stock 16s because they're so much lighter compared to my Saleens... Almost twice as heavy...
