I've considered the Vis hood for a long time. But, I've always been concerned about fitment of after market hoods. It looks GREAT in the pics! How is the fit of the hood when you look at it up close?

Looks great and will look better at INDY.



“Back Home Again In Indiana”

Verse One
I have always been a wand’rer
Over land and sea
Yet a moonbeam on the water
Casts a spell o’er me
A vision fair I see
Again I seem to be

Chorus
Back home again in Indiana,
And it seems that I can see
The gleaming candlelight, still shining bright,
Through the sycamores for me.
The new-mown hay sends all its fragrance
From the fields I used to roam.
When I dream about the moonlight on the Wabash,
Then I long for my Indiana home.

Verse Two
Fancy paints on mem’ry’s canvas
Scenes that we hold dear
We recall them in days after
Clearly they appear
And often times I see
A scene that’s dear to me

You'll need to know the lyrics. You are singing it at the opening ceremony.

Travel Safe.

Thanks guys! Pete at Showstopper did a great job on the grill. I think it matches the bottom better than the original.

I decided not to run to the track yesterday, so the direct port will just have to make it's debut at the fest. I didn't want to risk breaking anything and not having time to fix it. If anything goes wrong Saturday I'll put her on the trailer, but at least I'll be a couple of days into the fest. Better than having to leave it at home.

By this time tomorrow we'll be on the road!

Agreed on the breakage... If it happens there, if Corey and I can fix it with a screw driver and computer, it gets fixed... If not, it goes on the trailer...

All these crazy builds coming down to the wire. At least next year we should just be tweaking them.

There's not that much more I can replace on this car.

Of course we haven't started on the interior yet.

I've actually looked around at some, but didn't find anything I really liked. I'm hoping to see some different options at the fest.

Only skirts Im even considering are ZL1. I like the quad tips/diffuser look, but again the only one I like is the modified stock or ZL1 diffuser.

ZL1 skirts were the only ones that appealed to me as well. Maureen hooked me up with them.
