I'm using this logic. Starting now. Although, my vows were in German so I'm not exactly sure what I agreed to.

that's why i said 'slightly easier'

these're 300 while the Invos are 260... not a huge difference, but i've also had a few personal recommendations for the Invos, so there's another +.

and like i said - the car takes care of my boost addiction.

do you have a different set of tires for the street? or do you not drive the vette on the street much anymore?



and you'll think it takes care of your addiction... till you get in the truck...

So I wet sanded my hood spears.

The guy who painted them laid me some extra clear to be able to get the orange peel and high/low spots out with.

Still have to do the whole front fascia. But I need a smaller Adams pad to be able to polish it even better.

Looks pretty good from here

If anyone critiques the pin-holes, ask to see their work, that should shut them up
