Here is a pic of my last bday cake.
The top of it says "Tims mid life crisis"
It tasted as good as it looks.

Very nicely done thread. Very nice pics but it does look even more awesome in person. I can't wait to hear it rumble with those headers! I'll be staying tuned.

I went Monday morning and had my Hotchkis 1" springs installed.
I also had my wheels swapped over to my new set of General G-Max AS-03.
This was a perfect time to put my gorilla wheel locks on that I bought last month too.
Of course all this was topped off with an all wheel alignment.
Whew it was a busy morning.

Ill get my baby cleaned up this weekend and hopefully get some fresh pics put up

Other than my wheels and exhaust tips, the only chrome on the outside of my car are the sparks emblems on the front and back





When I originally ordered these emblems, I didnt think I would eventually try to eliminate the outside chrome

So...the other day I took the emblem off the heritage grill.
It actually looks better and meaner without the emblem.
As for the back of the car, I have the guide pin holes so I just cant remove the emblem. What I decided to do was order the same SS Sparks emblem, only in black and red instead of chrome and red.
Problem solved
It looks like Ill have a Sparks chrome trunk emblem for sale at CFEST if anyone is interested
Hopefully I will be receiving the new one soon.
