Definitely a lot of support.....I don't get not having some sort of suspension or tires and racing the Camaro. LOL

At least I feel that way post-tirewall.

I'll post up some stuff soon!

The hoods I like the look of don't seem to have big enough extractor openings. I love this hood but it's not available (yet):

A buddy of mine says I should do like you, get a spare and make what I want but it seems pretty daunting. What kind of time do you have into your hoods?

No I really don't want my car to be to readily identifiable to me. I get paranoid when you guys use my real name.

I promise I'll never your real name again! :eek:

But I do know what you mean. When my car was getting tinted after the accident someone posted a pic of it on Facebook asking who's car it was. I was pissed because my car stayed at the tint place over night and I didn't want someone going over and messing with it especially after all the stuff I had just put in it.

ROFLMAO....from now on, you will be referred to as Big Squirrel from me. Savvy? LOL

I agree brother. I recently had a return on a part that didn't fit a truck and the customer insisted on sending it back UPS. We'll, we have a PO Box and the USPS doesn't accept UPS Packages.

The guy straight up called my house and left a message that he'd "just send it to my house on xxxxx."

Creepy.
