Don't forget the most important...

Whatever you do, don't lose a drag race in front of all your friends at a huge event, to the "underdog".

Ok. LOL

For the record.

The Savini wheels were screwed up and though I fubared my finger I did actually prove the wheel problem.

It was my initial fuse pull that broke it wide open.

I was in fact able to demonstrate that rubbing compound swirls can be repaired with Adams polished and the porter-cable.

It was a joint decision by me and Chris to use the Borla 'felt' gaskets on my headers.

It was in fact the felt gaskets that was the problem and NOT the supercharger install.

The orange hoses worked just fine and ended up NOT being the problem. (but was confirmed that they WOULD have been later) HOWEVER, I got them just for the install because nobody had the sizes I needed. I only used them while I waited for the right ones to get here from Magnuson.

The different cut-outs were an attempt to use what was recommended but nobody here in Mobile would do. And I have no welder. Or welding skillz for that matter.

All of the broken stuff is a product of me driving the hell out of my car. And I fixed it all myself.

The keys locked in the car was not my fault using Han-Solos reasoning. It was an eventual succesful attempt to diagnose a drive shaft failure and fix it.

OMG................ I could go on.................... Geez, these last few years with my car have been pretty busy.

Damn, I am a trainwreck sometimes. LOL

No. They are like the camaro5.com stickers. Peel the back and put them on then peel the front.
