    yup so I figured while I was gonna have to replace the mount I might as well do more so purchased UMI 35MM front, 22 mm rear sway bars, the bigger mounts and Lower Control Arm Relocation Brackets. Now to find someone around here with a lift!! lol

    Today, Monday, took T roofs off and crused to work. Afternoon, removed T roofs and baked on the way home. AC on max did help. Stopped for gas at Shell station, lady across the pump said "nice car!" Not bad for a red 95 TA!

    lol...it was meant for Patrick, I thought I quoted him.
    Went down to Orange Beach...we usually stay in Fort Morgan @ the beach club but we stayed in Orange Beach this time. I grew up on the Louisiana coast, but i've been going to Gulf Shores, Biloxi, etc since I was like 2 or 3 years old. A buddy of mine lives down around Mobile with a 35 foot boat and we take it out while im down there on vacation. Usually go out about 10-20miles and catch snapper, lemon fish, etc...here's this years haul for me I've still got fish from last year so Im gonna be eating a lot of fish over the next month or so...I was at the wharf when the Alabama State Marlin Record was broken. They had a major marlin tournament while we were down there and the record got broke for the first time in 25years. First group to break it was some guys from AL and then about an hour and a half later a group of guys from Louisiana broke it with an 850lb marlin. They said it took them almost 7hours to get it in the boat once they hooked it.

    this is one that a shark got about 5 feet under the boat. the snapper's eyes and gills were still moving when we got him up...and ofcourse, this one was probably going to be the biggest one of the day. We watched the shark come up from beneath him and took the whole body in one bite. It was pretty cool to watch...

    BIG thanks Will....Insurance is covering 99% of this. My share is 250.00. I did save half of that with a few parts I got "dirt cheap"(HID ballast and vinyl overlay)
    I now stand at 125.00 my cost.

    Took the Trans Am to a cruise in this evening. Kind of a last minute thing so just gave it a quick detail. Kept the cutout open the whole way over.

    Sad to see that both of our are out of commission right now. I should have mine back together by Monday or Tuesday. We need to get them together. There's not a whole lot of our MRM's out there.

    Almost done. Should be ready Monday or Tuesday. Then on to my garage for suspension upgrades. They had better detail my engine bay before I get it back. With only 38k miles on it, she was very "CLEAN" to say the least.

    I'm sure I'll post a few pictures. Would like to find a nice background and try my luck with Sept COTM.
