Tom, Daryl, what's with the huge font in your sigs? Trying to make up for lack of size somewhere else?

Hmm you must have your settings jacked up because on my monitor they are smaller than your font.
I don't need to make up for any size deficiencies, if you don't believe me just ask your wife
Sorry that was completely and utterly uncalled for, but I couldn't help it.

Looks like I'll be having to change out my O/R H because my hook up to get it passed with it on didn't work out.

Thank You!

About your body shop...

And you were thinking about leaving your baby there to have the roof re-painted and have it good to go by Saturday? Yes, you can thank me now..

Your so right Bill. I'm sure they would have called me Friday telling me some horror story.

I have the smallest font here... and never made any changes. You must be on your laptop again.

I didn't know it was called a "font" now.

Quick update about my car.
Just got it back from the body shop and all I can say is . They did they're best to hide them but I can still tell. They said they're willing to repaint them whenever I willing to leave the car again. I think I'll let Bill try and find them on Saturday and if he does then I'll go the repainting route. Either that or point them out and let Bill give his opnion. Well I gotta go and probably won't be on again untill late tonight.

That sux.

I'll give you my honest opinion on Saturday. Even without seeing it, I bet it was still a better move than leaving your car with them this week and possibly not getting it back in time for the Sunset show.

Leo, I piggy backed off your MWAG Shock Tower Cover pics you already posted up and did a quick 'How To' here.

They look sweet indeed! And the paint matched perfectly!

They look great! I don't think I'll get mine by tomorrow's mail. They are coming from WI - it's possible, but unlikely. Only good thing is that nobody else will have theirs, either!

I got the H-Pipe installed - all I need to do is tighten all the bolts.

When it's all said and done, it will have taken me close to 3 hours. But I'm by myself (and still semi-handicapped), and I have the TV on in the garage and I keep stopping to watch the action scenes in Knight Rider and The A-Team... very distracting.

I had to take the battery out, too. Like everybody else, I tried to get to that connector but couldn't. I have no idea how anybody does it from the bottom.

When I lifted the new H-Pipe up to take it back into the garage, I was like, "Whoooaaaa, this is light. I need to figure out the weight difference". So, Bill, if you want to add it into your write-up, there is exactly a 13 lb weight savings with this mod, too. That's a lot for drag racers.

Installing the new one back into the car is a breeze. About 100 times easier than the H-Pipe in the '89. That one has to be put up in 2 parts and the cross-over pipe has to be connected once it's mounted - very difficult.

I love it when a plan comes together! (From Hannibal)

We want to see some videos (especially with you smiling)!

Wow... what, you watching some 80's channel?

Like I said in my write-up too, I have no clue how some of those guys accessed the O2 plug from anywhere but from the top.


Bill, if you want to add it into your write-up, there is exactly a 13 lb weight savings with this mod, too. That's a lot for drag racers.
Addendum added.
