A little update:

Did my first oil change today and it went pretty good, my new jack works . Since the LLT doesn't come with a magnetic drain plug I ordered one and replaced the stock one. If anyone else is interested this is the one I bought: http://www.magneticdrainplug.com/Aut...lugs/AP04.html

Now I bought the extra washer but I didn't actually use it. It will be interesting to see what the plug picks up during my next oil change. O and the magnetic plug is 0.02lbs lighter than stock!!! Woo Hoo!!!! haha
Well my first post of your build thread. I'm not trying to be nasty,makesure you keep your Lug nut sleeve in the car at all times you never know when you will need it. Did you use synthetic oil. The car looks awesome you've done 1 heck of a great,should be very proud of your work & choi ce of making it your own.

I too installed a magnetic plug, it picks up a little bit of gung each oil change, nothing big, but does look a little dirty on the end. Nice to know it is grabbing something.

Just remember to take it with you if you park where someone can break in and grab the lug sleeve! You might come out and find the car up on blocks with it's shoes off!

Yea def wasn't expecting that! Haha no I didn't win the tiebreaker I only picked 81 total points and that was gone within like a couple min into the second half. I wonder if they will give the 1st 2nd 3rd place to use three who were tied for first based on the tiebreaker?

I'm hoping to install my rotors this weekend but it might be raining. so it might just have to wait till next weekend. I have a garage but I rather wait till no rain so I can break in the hawk pads correctly.
