If you don't mind me asking, who or where did you get these quad tips from?? I haven't found any that would fit the factory ground effects except those MBRP ones.

Yes, they came with the Retro Catback from Stainless Works. But you can get them through APEX.

Here you go!

Very cool Tim! I can't wait to get mine painted AMB/CFM.
Someday... I was #3 I think in the first group buy and it's still not painted...

Understood. This is my last weekend driving, I will miss that, however I have a multitude of projects planned, so we will have a lot of quality time together this winter.

Can't wait for the new pics man. It's going to be absolutely bitchin. With the new mods, you'll just have to throw 'Depends' adult diapers out the window for future use to pedestrians because they're going to shit or piss themselves when your ride drives by.

Sweet!!

Ya know Tim, as I was headed through your build, that IOM keeps getting better with every post. I have to say I really like this type of build, because of you and your buddy doing all the work yourselves. It shouts volumes of just how meticulous you are about your work. As I was closing on the end of the build, I thought, it would be great to see new wheels on her and guess what?---You did yourself proud--The wheel/tire selection was right-on!! ...
Keep up the good work...COTW will land in your lap before you know it.....
