So SEMA is coming up and I have a few different options. Been speaking with an award winning SEMA builder, but it doesn't look like I'll have enough to put into my car for what I wanted. I need to figure out if I'm going to keep the car's appearance as is for SEMA, finish my exhaust and take it with performance mods, or if I even want to show my car there at all.

Hotel is non-refundable, but I haven't heard back from the company I was going for, so I'm exploring other options to buy a featured spot as I'm still planning on going as of now.

Go for it, but don't try to cram and get a bunch of stuff done beforehand. It's not worth it. Take your car and enjoy !

Well the suprise info has been pushed back until Monday. End of quarter processing and meetings coupled with my contact getting sick has complicated things. I have the utmost confidence that things will be back on track starting monday. I'm stoked!

Better late than never. My project has been given the greenlight.

I'm working with US Wheel to design a new product to be debuted at SEMA.

Thanks Bismarck!

WOOT! But those aren't 22's. I don't have the vogue white walls to match...

Besides, They don't make wire wheels from monoblock.

Well the monoblock design andthe 3piece designs change the dynamic of the wheel depending on which one we use, but first renderings were discussed last night. Continuing progress is happening today, so that they can start being cut tomorrow.

The wheel is going to look VERY cool,

Also signed on with a new detailing product company tonight who will be detailing my ride before the show starts.

Procharger has shipped the larger inlet tube/filter and smaller pulley, and AAC has shipped some sidemarker lights and P13W bulbs. I'm having the lights tinted on Friday.

This saturday's wrench day is going to come in handy. =)

All I need now to finish my car is an exhaust and a tune!

Nope. I thought about SmartWax, but a company approached me. I'm waiting for confirmation before stating who it is. It's an Eco-Friendly startup company that won awards in 2008 though.
