I'm sure there are things you know about the car that I'm clueless about. I'm just a computer/ipod/cell phone geek, so I actually read the manual about all that when I first got the car.

OK so, I'm getting a little frustrated with something. *note this is me not ranting or bashing, just getting frustrated and have a few questions*. Showstoppers, I ordered a hydrocarbon radiator cover and hydrocarbon door kick panels on May 1st. Yep, over two months ago. In late may I got the pieces and did a test fit, the radiator cover needed some trimming so I marked it with a sharpie and sent it back off to Showstoppers.

Well now its July 20th and I have no hydrocarbon parts. I was told by showstoppers that the parts are being held up at the hydro-imaging guy, which is totally fine I can understand that the guy is busy. Em, I know you have a bunch of parts from them, how long did you have to wait?

Again, I'm not bashing, accusing, insulting, or any other kind of negative talk towards Showstoppers. I just want to know if this wait time is usual or if something is a muck and there is a chance that they ran off with my hard-earned golden doubloons.

I have ordered a lot of parts from showstopper. He is totally honest and has not run off with your money. He does do a lot of custom work and I believe he usually does the work in the order in which it was received. His work is second to none and will be worth the wait, but I have had to wait a couple of months for pieces before.

Send him a pm and ask him when you can expect to get your pieces.

I did. I sent him one earlier, but in writing it I got curious how long it has been since I ordered them. I'm not questioning his work, half the forum raves about his stuff. I was just curious at the usual wait time for his parts.

Also, on a related note. I'm doing my dash ABL tonight.

Cool. Let me know how the dash ABL goes. I've wanted to do it, but I don't want it to look like a hack job.

Oh there will be pictures, and quite possibly video. I got lucky though, snagged a tyco light pipe off a member who sold his camaro. Got the light pipe and (2) of the GM blue LEDs for $35 shipped. I'm a bargain shopper what can I say

Once I get everything for it, would you mind helping me do mine?

Of course not, I'd be more than happy to. After I got back from the gym I was pretty beat, so didn't get to finish the mod tonight as I was hoping. But I can say that I have everything for it all nicely laid out and in place. I am going with the DIY approach that does not require any sanding of the panel. Supposedly you end up with the dash trim sticking about 3-4mm out from the dash, which I'm OK with if it saves me the sanding process.

This is what I came across this evening: she's not even a year old yet and strangers are taking pictures of her with her hood up. Then on top of that, they are posting those pictures, pictures of her belt, catch can, and even her air intake on the internet. What is this world coming too.

So I'm at Great Falls cars and coffee right now, pretty good turn out considering the heat. But what grinds my gears is that my right side afterburners are out. I checked Em this morning and they were fine. Not an hour later and it's out. WTH? I'm hoping it's just the heat or something. But we'll see.
