    DAMN IT. No estimates on paint today. Delayed until next Friday (Feb 1st).

    Removed the computer and EFI wiring harness from the Mustang in preparation for the estimate Wednesday morning. Didn't have the patience to remove the wiring harness in one peice, so I cut it up real good. I'm also now considering new front control arms from Ford.

    As much as I love my GT Turbine wheels with BFGoodrich Radial T/A's, the wheels need to be refinished, and the tires aren't Z-Rated. The car in my logo has the ROH ZT, 17x9" rims, pictured on the right, click to enlarge.

    Notice a different motor in the top logo? I couldn't wait anything longer and ended up applying for that second loan today, and purchasing THAT motor from Western Motorsports. They talked me out of the EFI 5.8 due to excessive cost. It's carbureted 306 with nitrous, from their cheif mechanic's race car. Check out the mods page for details
