    No problem, my shop always has someone hanging out, probably hardly notice you.:rlaugh:

    No, just the pic.

    The wife and I sucessfully got the motor back in the engine bay AGAIN, without a scratch. Maybe ready to fire again over the weekend.

    Don't if anyone has any experience with this product used to coat header wrap, but I'm trying it. The color on the wrap I used did not hold up well. The can said to cure them @ 450 after, so i did, smoked like a mother. They look great if it holds up.

    I have to say I think that this is probably the best looking build up on this board. The work is first class, the car is awesome.

    Don't you have problems w/ the wrap turning the metal underneath into brittle junk after 6 months?. The mild steel headers I wrapped all fractured at the welds after that period of time.

    AND,...what is the lift rating (in pounds) of the hood lift shocks?

    Thanks, the headers have been wrapped now for a year with no issue. Don't know the lift rating but I'm sure it's on Redline Tunings website.


    This is a great way to end the build, after 2 years of hard work...

    +1, agreed.

    On another note when will the following products hit the market?
    1. Wiper motor relocation brackets.
    2. Roll bar.

    Lets trade:D

    Every time I see it, I just love this car. I `think I got a decent start on mine, but it'll never equal the flat out cool factor your car bleeds all over the place!:nice:

    Thanks, they are brackets I fabbed as the power steering one is unavailable to purchase,as it chages the stock position to get the pump away from the turbo. Similar to March pulleys.

    Thanks, man.


    Oh, man, your car is amazing, I think ya probably got me beat on cool factor. Thanks for the compliment though. I hope you are still going to Bowling Green this weekend, wish we could go, good luck on the shoot.
