Yo Jose, what up bro?

Just roll with it man. All of us that drive our cars daily have them. Like Richard(Emperor_SS) told me, That just shows that you drive the car.
The paint on these cars really sucks. It's chips and scratches way too easy. I wouldn't worry about it.

Get a clear bra it will run you about $600 i got one in my car though they had to take it off because I got the SLP hood and Heritage grill Im getting it reinstalled this coming week.

Im down for the meet and greet though I met john the other day while driving on mesa. lol Now Im thinking about changing my shifter to the barton I might just install the clutch.

So what is the verdict with your car? What came loose at the strip?
I think you might want to check out a bushing set for that wheel hop.

I know what you mean about the road marks...I only drive when its nice and I have a couple. Fabens to El Paso is hard on a car, if you drive much on the freeway it will show around here.

You think with a supercharger and all my mods I wouldnt drive fast? I've actually gone 150mph on the freeway lol.

You just need to take more care of your finish, a clear bra in the front end then sealant then wax on your finish should be enough. for those who dont like a clear bra you can even add extra hands of clear coat to your front end, though if you have rock chips its too late now.

I only have some scratches inside the engine bay that the guys at the body shop did when installing my SLP hood, but Im taking it back monday and making them repair them.

well I've done better than 150 in my car but thats not what I meant I was talking about the long drive we have to get to work see my round trip a day is a 108 miles and I encounter all kinds of weather conditions, road surfaces and various debris on the road. With a drive like I have even with the extra precautions taken to prevent driver's marks it is impossible because of the it is my DD.

Oh ok ok I see waht you mean, a clear bra would save you from all that though, I would highly recommend it specially in a daily driver. If you decide to do it let me know and I can hook you guys up.
