    omni is cheaper and it works great. Lays down smooth and covers excellent. just pm me and we can talk and ill see what i can do for you. A gallon will do you enough to paing the inside and outside of the car. Its all in your prep work is to how well any paint will stick.

    Ordered parts from Madman Racing today...Minitubs, Rear Upper Spring Relocation Kit, Travel Limiters, Save-your-ass Bars, and Replacement Inner Tie Rods. Also working on piecing together a battery relocation kit that is track legal.

    Tomorrow I'm planning on cutting the cage and 3-point SFCs out of Nymph.

    Nice meeting you the other day, let me know when you're ready to start cutting the top
    I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

    Jeremy - I may not be able to express correctly how/what I'm trying to say here below but....

    Can you cut the tubes about a foot from the welds on the floor pull the cage then when you go to re-insert the cage back in the other car get new tubing that is the same length, and use plugs on the inside to hold the tubes together then weld?

    I've seen it done before just having problems with the correct terminology or lingo because I'm not a welder.

    Got cracking on the minitubs today. It really didn't help that they came with no instructions, so most of my time was spentin cutting little by little and test fitting until I was satisfied. They're not welded in yet.

    I was running 335/35/17s on 13" wide wheels on the street. They BARELY fit with a lot of cutting. See my thread here: Making 335s fit on an F-body (pic heavy)

    Everytime I would hit a bump, they would scrape where the bumpstops used to be. Now I have a lot more room to run the same wheels.

    Also, this gives me more room to run the 28" slicks I was fighting like hell to make fit. Now I have no problem.

    Man, this is looking great. I wish I had a garage I could do stuff myself. Even though I have no clue how to. I'm sure with a little guidance/help it could be done. It's gotta save a lot of labor costs.

    Besides all that, it's looking great.
