well my front end is all back together, looks sweet with the bright red calipers so now its just the fuel system, mount the IC, finish the FFI, and build some hardpipes. im ordering the bends in the next day or two, so if anyone wants aluminum bends let me know.

ryan: i want my afm back, and you can pick up your stickers. oh ya, and i need that t fitting, let me know what you want for it.

matt: come get your speakers and your stickers

anyone else who wanted stickers: come get them.

After painting Craig's sawblades a gunmetal grey, I think it clashed too much with the car/tires. I don't think I'd paint my rims a dark color unless my car was white. Even then, I'm a fan of polish/chrome.

Going out to polish more.

just sunday nights at the pizza place, working 8:30-5 at the engineering place until school starts, then just part time.

why do all the coolest gauges always have to be expensive... i can afford to but one blitz blm gauge, or 3 megan gauges... bah... oh ya, got the new ebrake handle on, looks cool, but doesnt match my big chrome ball shifter...

don't worry dude, you'll end up fixing it and you'll regret it and love it at the same time. It's just the way it seems to go (well, the smart ones bail out early lol).

And I know about the feeling that it used to be in good shape, My car used to be awesome.... and I spun a rod bearing with less than 70,000 original miles and had to replace the engine last summer... like I say, just seems to be the way she goes.
Hopefully it's not that bad though dude.

I'm also pretty sure I'm gonna pop my headgasket soon. hopefully it'll last till winter so I can park it and fix it lol.
