Will do! I just replaced my hoodstruts tonight. I have a list of all of the things I need to get done before the first show of the year. First things first though are fix problems. But tonight I replaced my hoodstruts which were blown... I think my hood opens more smoothly now than it ever did... oh and I like stella sorry...

Next step, replace water pump, followed by tie rod ends, followed by offset topmounts, followed by extended studs... then I can have a functionally sound car... Until then it sits and waits

Sorry I forget to update my threads... then update them at odd hours so others don't see them...

I guess I left off with wheel test fit pictures... So I ended up not running spacers in the front for now. It is just super tight wheel to bag but after 2000 miles I haven't had any issues with it.

I threw the wheels on without an alignment, spacers, new studs or anything. It looked good for the show season opening weekend...

I then swapped to my offset topmounts which allowed me to run 2 degrees of camber without moving the wheel any closer to the bags. The new top mounts also allowed the car to drop almost an inch lower, here is the first picture with the new mounts right after I pulled it out of the garage.

The next thing I did was bother ih8punkrok and we put super scene point puddle lights on the car:

I took the car to a show in Bowling Green, KY and won best domestic which was cool especially since there was a gorgeous mystichrome terminator cobra on CCW classics, and a bagged Focus SVT on AG's also in the class. I also had a lot of great photos taken at the event, including this one which Southrnfresh used in their event write up:

After that I just fixed suspension issues such as leaks which had developed in the air lines at the bag from kinks. This was to get the car ready to drive to Helen, GA for SOWO. I did a brake job and had the car retinted since my old tint was bubbling up...

fresh tint (35% on the windshield, 20% on the sides 5% on the back) :

the first pit stop (yeah my friends are that cool):

I had an awesome photoshoot with Alex Dooley in Helen which was really cool so here are some shots from that.

I guess I'm going to do some audio stuff this summer which should be fun. I am excited to have bass again. Also another GTO owners search for weight reduction has shown me a few places which I can clear up the path of sound from the trunk the cabin which is always a good thing.

What's with all the painters tape?

Also how the hell can you drive that thing with the windshield that dark?

just avoiding rock chips on the road trip. I buffed the car right before driving down and did not want to have the finish get trashed. And my HID's make it plenty bright enough to see at night. It honestly is one of the best things I have done to the car. I no longer get blinded by the sunrise or idiots with their brights on at night.
