Haha, thanks man!

I know, I cant go into the engine compartment with the cover off too often, cause Ill start getting into all of the wire, fuel line, evap, coil relocation and cleaning up stuff. And that seems like a ton of time and money lol.

Hey vrooma, really good looking car. Just purchased a CRT 2013 week ago and really like the quad tip, j pipe design. Where can I purchase the solo j pipe with the quad tips. Searched everywhere. Thanks. Pls pm me.

Thanks! FYI, I ordered from SOLO with no tips at all, bought tips from somewhere else and had the pipes adjusted and tips welded on after I installed the system.

Of course haha. I have a code reader so I just clear it once a week cause it bothers me to be there.

Plus the CEL disables remote start and I like hearing the headers from far away so I like to remote start it walking back in a parking lot or something lol.

There is always something we have our eye on. My new project is to begin working on all the orange peel. Going to practice on pieces that can easily be repainted if necessary.

Haha, braver than me, I want to practice on another car first. I used to detail cars, minus using any power tools on the paint, I never had a vehicle available that I could practice on, since all the cars I was cleaning were Nola Motorsports Ferraris, Bentleys, Rolls, etc.

I had no problem driving the $300k cars but i was too scared to compound and polish.

I'd love to get some of that action.... with a Porta Cable polisher you really can't hurt the paint. Slow and steady is my motto!

It was a blast, I never had so much fun detailing. He probably just has dirty cars now, I dont know that he uses a detailer or keeps up with them getting cleaned anymore.

Yeah, I know I should trust the PC.

Tune went great, Lethal really knows what they are doing. They also had a ZL1 diffuser lying around, so I bought it. Hopefully I can get it on before C5 fest
