You got that one right. It ALWAYS takes longer than you think. Quality takes time and by the looks of it you are a perfectionist.

Good. A few teething issues. One is that we did not get to detail the car. So now that everything has dried out, there are a lot of white spots from the polishing compound. Not a big deal but will be a little time comsuming to remove. An aggressive rub with a cotton towel removes them. Dad has a spray cleaner that works quicker but will still take a long time to do the whole car. I might go to a detailing shop on Wednesday in vegas and let them go at it.

Car is running great. LOTS of attention. Thumbs up, people taking pictures. The door fobs are finicky. We CAN open the passemger door with one fob but its a challenge. Shameel said we will be using superior unit when I return anyway. I washed the car today so got to find a few clear coat blemishes. Nothing you did not tell me about. There is a little wheel vibration about 50 MPH and I suspect it is wheel balance issue but liveable for now.

LOTS of comments on the lights. They are all positive but of course no one is going to say anything negative to me directly. AAC MIGHT be able to finish the halo light install in Pheonix. I'm hoping they might also install a new black bow tie and I just pay for installation and then swap the faulty one. We will see.

Bottom line....the car looks and feels freakin fabulous when it is in motion....or parked.

Good News.
Of course we will correct all the litthe issues under my warrenty when we see you again.
We still need to have Parm do a tune on the dyno?.. do you agreee?
I told shameal to order the new parts. I will fund it for now so we can get it resolved ASAP... we'll square up later.
If you have a chance , buy the Meguires final inspection spray cleaner. Works awesome on fresh cut surfaces.polishes and cleans all surfaces.
Glad all else is well!
