depending on your definition of reliable... if its the same thing going wrong all the time and you know how to fix it, is it really that much different than regular maintenance? its just a shorter timespan. think of 4th gen header installs before locking header bolts. for the first 150 miles after install, you would/should check the header bolts to make sure they didn't back out. technically, they arent reliable if they keep backing out, but you wouldn't look at it that way.


but if you really want me to make an excuse... If I spent just the money you have spent on modifications for your car... I'd still have some left over to buy you some binoculars to see the ass end of my car at the other end of the track.

I agree completely.. hence why my car is significantly more expensive than yours....

I don't want to have to put air in my tires as often as I turn the key to go for a ride. :laugh:

I distinctly remember seeing the 200 MPH tape applied to your windshield in Phoenix... Now, that is a double meaning appearance mod if there ever was one... It helped you see better... and look better... since you could deny any true problem existed... and claim that it was in fact a performance enhancement... which we all know is PURE :bs:...

Next!!!


This was not an appearance upgrade, it was an E.T. Enhancer !! Look at how the pure speed just blew the wipers right out of place. Brandi is in the background taking a leak on the Savini wheels...

We could have had a two week vacation / party here. I think PQ is holding GTAHVIT until the FEST III grudge match.

GTAHVIT 01-20-2012 10:48 PM

LOL :D

I'm still here... Just burried at work... I had some use or loose vacation time so I had to take today off. The wife and I had a whole day to ourselves and we spent it running errands without the kiddos in tow...

I've got a big project we're just about ready to finish up.... Not a good time to take a day off but we're close to wraping this phase up.... Man will I be glad when this is over.

:headbang:

I'm waiting for repressed memories of abductions and black suburbans to start surfacing and sending us to mental institutions.....:bellyroll:

OK my feeble attempt to bring this back to something like a build thread :D

Pete probably won't like this, but I had some time today so I finally installed my painted rear diffuser...

It needed to be wet sanded and polished, (part of the deal I worked out with my painter, Jason). So I hit it with 1500 twice then 2000 once to get rid of the orange peel.

Then I used the 4" green pad and severe swirl and haze remover on my PC to get it all polished out. I pretty much throttled the pad as there are a ton of nooks and crannies that were hard to reach.

I wasn't sure how much difference it was gonna make on the IBM but I'm pretty happy with it.

No, Pete :facepalm: I still didn't do my Radius Rod bushes... the guy who painted the diffuser had been bugging me for weeks to get it installed. Bushes are next :facepalm:

PQ 01-22-2012 07:39 PM

Looks good. Great job. :thumbsup:

The Stig 01-22-2012 07:39 PM

Looking good :thumbsup:

I hear the radius rod bushes are super easy to install too.
