    Still a ways to go but, in the home stretch! I've had this car 15 years, I never drove it before, not one time. Been wrenchin, blockin, paintin, buffin, beatin, breakin, bitchin, bleedin and mf'in for three summers straight.... I finally got to take this bitch around the block and drive it for the first time today. Haven't felt that in that same 15yrs. Right up there with gettng a fine POA! What a feelin...worth every arguement Ive ever had with my wife about keepin it.

      Looking great! Congrats. Glad you were able to stay with it and get this far.

      But now a question. How can you do and alignment with so much weight missing from the front of the car? I see a couple hundred pounds missing don't I? And that will change camber.

        Its goin back next week after everything is back on and all is getting double checked anyway. I just needed it driveable to get it out of the way here and be able to drive it a couple miles to the exhaust shop and back to his place. I went to manual steering and it was a bitch tryin to move it around with everything out of whack. Now that its straight it feels like my 04 Accord. It'll be fine til then. A couple miles down the road wont hurt anything

          Great work.

            Now that's a proper response. For sure a labor of love. Thanks! Some here could learn from you...

                Thanks. Just like you, most people here believe in hard work and the results it brings. Great group of guys, and gals here. Look forward to seeing the finished product.
