What did they do to fix them?... Very cool that tribone is helping out...

Catback and headers will be pretty straight forward... I hope...

Sweet! Glad the wheels are fixed, PQ!!! Now make sure the gorillas are careful when they ship them.

I'd also be interested to know what they did to repair your wheels. Did they put in new drums?

From what I understand, they were dented OUTward and they surmised that when the tires were mounted that the shop pried the lip outward.

But I don't know. I didn't even know that was possible. Fortunately for me, they will be returned to me mounted and balanced already so I don't have to worry about it this time.
