I ran a best 12.7 at 113 that day in Houston... and yup, it is a distant memory...

Outside of blowing a tire, axle, driveshaft or turbo that 13.7 is a distant memory. That was easily blown away at C5FestII. Multiple times...


Paul - I hope you hit the 13's. That is a great goal to shoot for !
Agreed, on all counts...

Great shot on those plasma DRLs - you can really tell the difference from the stock lights.

and man that's a nice looking old Chevy truck in the background on the spring before/after shots....

May 2011 Internal Aqua Blue LED Lighing Project








Bought the Aqua Blue LED Interior lighting kit from AAC. I've wired it into the Dome lighting for now but I'm going to add a SPDT switch once I get it so I can also wire it to the Ambient lighting, that way I can have a bit more control of it.

I also need to find a couple of small LEDs that I can add to the cup holders.

I won't tell her you said that - she's sensitive! She's not even a classic yet, although 235k tells you she's been around the block. haha!

Those footwell lights look great! You NEED to do the ABL for the dash now so it matches the doors and footwell (and so you can do it first and I can learn from your mistakes). Matter of fact, that would be great to finally turn the table and have you work on my car for a change.

and the pics of the engine cover..........????? don't keep us waiting til Kemah.

Help needed, I've painted my engine cover with Krylon Fusion (Black Gloss) but I am trying to get a high gloss (enamel like finish) to it that will match the custom RS logo I got made. Any advise on what I can paint over the Krylon Fusion with (I believe it is a lacquer). thanks..........
