Ah, so I should edit my post to change "BP" to whoever the other company is, then?

Who is the other company?

Thanks all for the thoughts and well wishes... I'm home... Left the deposition at 11:30 am and just walked in the house after having dinner with Deb... She stopped off and will be here shortly... So I'm going to soak in a tub and get the last of the rig smell off of me...

I can't describe it other than an industrial smell...lubricants, cleaning stuff...

As for the clothing, it is usually the cheapest laundry stuff they can find, with little to no freshener scent, and often the clothes are soaked through with hydraulic fluids, SBM, synthetic based muds, and other industrial based lubricants... When you're on the rig, you dont really notice it.. it's everywhere.... when off the rig, you get home and open the offshore bag and it amazes you how different it is...

Final choice will be between these two designs, ignore the finish, they will be polished so I have the choice of coloring them later or not...

I'll have to check, the difficulty with the deep dish look is the offset of the wheels on the Camaro...But I'll ask when I talk to the Guy on Monday...

Yeah i am looking to run this thing this coming year on the track so i will need some lightweight aluminum 19" wheels, not so much look

I have raced motorcycle & sleds and been around racing cars and building cars but i have never race cars personally and i know it's in my blood especially the competitiveness and winning!

Are you talking about drag racing or a road course...

These wheels would work for road courses and autocross, but there are better choices for drag racing imo...
