    I need to get mine done by a pro. I did it myself at the beginning of the last two seasons. Never fully happy with the results. I need to find a very reputable place though. I don't want just a car wash with detailing service.

Usually .5 better or so, compared to shifting at 5500 or less.
    This! I went from 13.1-3 to 12.8-9 just by shifting a little later and I'm sure she has a 12.7 maybe even a 12.6 in her with a good hooking track and blowing my rear

    Hey LSCya, Scott here. If you don't mind drivin over to Kearny, NJ, I know this lady that does phenominal detailing. Her Name is Debbie and she has been doing this for about25 or so years. She does all of my vehicles: T/A, Yukon, and my Harley. Figure about $200 for the TA, that includes inside and out, under the hood, and she even puts the car up on a lift so she can clean the INSIDES of your rims! Here is her work #: 1-201-997-5523.
    Give her a call and tell her Scott sent you over. She does an EXCELLENT job!

    Removed the seats in preparation for painting the interior with POR-15 this afternoon. Let me just say that I'm glad I have T-tops, cause those seats would not have come out with the roll cage blocking half the door.

    I'll make a thread when I'm done in the Appearance Section. I'm too busy lately to put together a thread...I'm trying to get the car done in time for Spazpalooza.
