Don't sweat it. Just letting you know I'm going to be a long way south of home.

Those are nice! My first thought was you don't need flip seats, but you can still use back seat for baggage on trips, so it'll come in handy

And on longer trips, the wife could slide hers forward and still tilt them back and the front bolster is adjustable... Etc...and baggage in the back seat is going to be necessary since there will at times be two 15 or 20 lb nitrous bottles and possibly my battery, since I may do away with the wheel well to install a chute frame...

A big shout out to a local vendor for Adams Polishing Products...

Called him, discussed my needs and concerns, and was hooked up with two box's and a bucket to address them...

Met with him to pick up the items and he went over all of them with me, gave me some heelpful pointers and steered me to Adams and Junkmans videos...

Well...

Brandi appears to be headed back into the hospital Monday...

We are looking to fix the transmission and we also need to address a potential issue with the drivers side wastegate... It appears a diaghram may have gone awol... so, we are going to kill several birds with one stone.... Corey is going to talk with the manufacturer of the wastegate rather than where we got it from... I am not going back down that road...My wallet and my backside are still hurting from the last effort along that road...

I'm going to talk to the wife and see if I can order the nine inch kit from DSS while she's in the hospital and go ahead and get the trans, the diff and all ready at the same time...

If so... then it's time to see what we can ring out of her with some race fuel and a boost boost.... After that, it's time for some laughing gas and really ring her out...

I would like to be able to look back and say we did... but... some things are/were not within our control... live and learn on that aspect... but, like I've said all along... Brandi will run when she's ready and not before...

Pete, I hope all is going well for you out there in the land where nothing ever happens since no one ever talks about what they did while they were there.... Joe called me yesterday afternoon... He was with Tim from RPM Rollbars... I would have liked to have had a chance to meet him and thank him for all the help he has been with my cage.... Well, now hopefully I'll meet him and John Nguyen and others involved at the Fest...
