    Do you mean the panel behind the t-tops in front of hatch? Next winter I will tackle undercarriage,engine compartment an suspension.

    There is a old bitch that lives across the street from me who is the town bitch! so when I start her up I pull outta the garage with open headers.This lady complains to my wife about me racing up an down the street in my sports car,funny haven`t driven her in over a year on the street.My car needs a tune so bad.Thats dust in my dirty garage kicking up lol.After doing a fair amount of research,finally found a place near me that specializes in ls engines,after she`s painted off to get dyno tuned.

    Ok haven`t touched her in a couple of days due to doctor`s visits etc.I ordered my rear rims an tires,went with the RPM 505`s an for a tire went with nitto`s 275/30/19.Ordered my rear tires first cause they were more expensive,also needed them for the dyno tune.

    Ok made some good progress yesterday.Just have to touch up some minor pin holes on drivers side door but after that the passenger side is done.Only things left to wet sand are the hatch an half the hood,then it`s time to start doing some walk around`s an go over everything.Ordered the Parts I needed for my Devilbiss spray gun including a 1.8 nozzle so I can prime without issues an the air cap I lost.Talked to my uncle about painting the car cause it can`t be done in the garage,has to be done in a good booth! I`ll probably spend a Friday night cleaning an prepping the booth,give it a good douching,hopefully within 3 weeks she`ll get some paint....will be happy if she gets paint in two weeks....working my butt off on her.On my list to buy It will be a new spray cup,some more red paint,another gallon of clear an a flex agent for the bumpers.While she`s waiting for the paint I will try to finish the rear spoiler an sail panel.Next will be the dyno but will be a little while before that happens.In order,paint wet sand buff,paint spoiler an sail panel black,paint bumpers,side skirts an put her back together.Next will be the dyno tune,purchase front tires an wheels,have a custom exhaust made,then register her.

    Joe,

    This is Riley what a awsome project and you are not half assing anything great I just talked to the shipping company and my new big block should be at my front door monday.



    This is a hell of a nice guy and a straight shooter to deal with good luck with your build I am going to do the same with my camaro after I get this 800-900hp motor paid for.

    Set back

    Ok called wheels next to get a tracking number on my wheels being delivered an noticed on my invoice said only 1 item being purchased.So I made a call an come to find out they only have one 19x9.5 wheel left an can be up to 4 months to get another.Kinda messed up I wasen`t notified about this earlier had to call myself but noticed they were still gonna charge for 2 wheels.But they did say they were gonna issue a full refund......lets see.

    Ok got my refund for the wheels without a problem,now I just gotta do some more research an find em.Little set back...don`t like the way the passenger side came out...wet sanding.When my 1.8 tip comes in i`m gonna re prime the passenger side.I figure i`ve gone this far so why not.In the process i`ll get moving on the sail panel an spoiler...will post more pics.

    I know...getting closer.I just wanna be able to cruise with the t-tops off on a nice sunny day,got alot of wrx`s around i`d like to just punk em off.A beautiful 02 camaro came cruising down my street an gave me a nice rev,but i get this fool in a stang when i`m outside he revs his friggen car to the moon,that will be my first victim!! that I can`t wait for.I wanna get my 7 year old into cars an what better way to do so than take him on cruise nights,car shows an nice cruises to the A&W to check out the rides.Take him to the track to check everything out...I think he`ll be excited...hoping
