    After thinking about it I realized I told him I wanted 20% and he said that is factory shade, I wanted 35% A little lighter with the dark interior. Oh well it sure does look good and cost me a pretty penny so 20% it is. Just have to take the wife's car when I'm transporting drugs....
    Nice. Looks even better.

    There is Christmas in June.

    My wife left an envelope that I wasn't suppose to open till Fathers Day before she left to visit her mom in Panama. Ok I cheated and opened it on Saturday. Note said order your tires...



    This was also from her, my son & niece. They ordered me a complete rack & Pinon, new e brake shows and all the stuff I need to convert all my lights over to HID & LED's

    Damn, Scott - that's awesome! Must be that's your family's way of keeping you out in the garage.

    That's impressive: there's no way my wife would have the capacity to even remember the things I tell her about my "hobbies," let alone be able to order them up without consulting me.

    She's a keeper, huh?

    Took my 30th Ann. Ed. white TransAm out for a joy ride after being away for a few weeks in a city with no car. Chomping at bit.... Car seems to be getting better with each aggressive drive after all the new fluids and tires rotated. Wow.

    p.s. is pollen as bad as salt on chrome? Only bad part of being away was seeing chrome pitting and peeling on my Harley wheel on my return?!?! Was detailed AFTER winter salt, so must be pollen collecting on low side of rim?

    I didn't think that pollen would hurt anything... hard to tell though.

    Assuming your Harley is being parked outside to cause your pollen problem. If so, having lived in the south for a number of decades where the Georgia pine tree pollen would get a quarter of an inch deep in the spring, I would say no, your problem is not pollen. It could be that either your chrome was already in trouble and just finally gave out or you have a neighborhood dog that likes to mark your wheels for you. Urine is definitely not good for chrome.

    I begun my suspension work. I bought pre-owned 20k mile Eibach Prokit springs with Bilstein HDs. Got the rear done very fast. Did front left last night with girlfriend helping. Going to do the front right today. Might be ordering adjustable LCAs however. The rear end has a little hop. I have a adjustable Panhard bar ready to go when the subframe connectors go in.

    I tackled the rack & pinon, new ps pump hoses and install most of my LED lights for the new smoked out side markers and tail lights. Only lights left to upgrade are the front DRL's and both headlights. Waiting on my kits from DDM Tuning to get here. My low's should be here today, not sure when the high's will get here. Coming from China. Tried to install my wideband but the shop that welded the bung in put the cap in to soon and the plug didn't want to come out. I broke 3 bits trying to get it out. Took it to them this morning and even they had fun getting it off using some of the biggest vice grips I've seen. This time they used a lot of anti-seize to ensure it will come off when I get home tonight.

    Here are some pics.










    I'll post more once all is done in a how to thread later.

    I found they are still making my favorite old "No. 7" chrome & metal polish. Going to give it a try. (No longer DuPont product, but...)

    I know this isn't what you asked but I have 275-40 in the front and 315-35 (both 17's) in the back. Car is lowered more than an inch and a quarter with no issues. Hope someone can give you an answer to your actual question.

    I know those fit which is why I asked about the bigger side wall. I've had the same with 335s on and they fit but not with as big of a side wall as what I asked.

    That sounds like quite some tire. Is there some wheel well gap you are trying to eliminate?

    Yeah I have gap even lowered plus I figure it would be good for my set up for the track.

    looks like I'm finally having to replace or rebuild the 10 bolt, I've been cranking it but haven't been driving it for about 2 months so hubby said he would drive it so he took off and came right back saying it sounded like something was loose when you turn left so I took off in it and it does sound like that but I jacked it up and could not find anything loose, I would have to say that the pinion seal is leaking for a while now but I keep the fluid full, but it has 102.000 on it and had twin turbos at one time and was at the drag strip more than a few times so I guess now I'll check the u joints then go and take off the cover and see how much metal is on the magnet, it's a 6 speed this is also 2nd motor waste gate stuck and boom went the 1st motor so bought a 2000 corvette motor it only has 23,438 miles on it, unfortunately, the rest of the car has over 100,000 on it, so off to the drawing board. thanks for reading my ranting, everyone have a good day!

    Started assembling my brakes to put on my member.
    The rotors are quite a bit bigger than stock

    And thicker too
