who thinks I should be Mr T for Halloween?

I can't decide on anything, had a good one picked out and actually went and bought a whole costume but it doesn't fit!!

Gotta think up something on the fly now... thought of all the brown people I could, boiled it down to Mr T, Osama, or a Cuban druglord.

if the only thing you're worried about is the driveshaft, you need to do more research on the swap.

i tolf them to use an aluminum plug. ill check to make sure it is, if it isnt ill just take it out and replace it before i put the head on.

just got a resurface, new valve seals, jet cleaning (looks almost new compared to how dirty it was before), plug the EGR, check and replace and damaged exhaust studs (they did 1), polish the cams (they had minor surface rust from sitting outside).

bob or ryan, either of you have some time to help me get the head back on? also, what do i need to do to prep the block for the new gasket? just clean it off with some carb cleaner and make sure there no crap in the cylinders?

i can put the exhaust side back together no problem, its the intake/fuel side that im worried im going to mess something up....

you need to make caliper adapters, but they have to be pretty presice. if you end up getting some rotors, let me borrow them for 30 min so i can measure them and model them in CAD

Ryan, was that supposed to say polish??!

Not trying to be a dick or anything, just that usually I can make sense of your posts.

I'm only wondering if there's some sort of crap that I haven't heard of (and there's no way in hell that even looks like it could sound like polish :P)
