Just got home from my 2nd ride of the year . Not sure if this is something to feel good about or not but smoked a guy in a Cadilac Elderado isn't that their version of a performance car ?

I washed the car today after a fresh oil change and slid sideways out of the alley.  :burnout:

Makes me think of how I have missed her.  :bananasmi

Took a small cruise in the Cuda, while at the same time my nephew was driving the Challenger :2thumbs:

I had to put brakes on my wifes Stratus today so I was in the same garage as the Cuda thought about taking the cover off and looking at it but didn't. All I need is some warmer weather and money

70 degrees out; installing a 140GPH, 9psi fuel pump that's replacing the red Holley electric.  And new brake lines on the axle housing with new brass block and braided steel flex line to the body. You know ,, just to keep the "hot blond y", company in the garage while she does the laundry.  :cooldancing:

Changed out my junk optima red top battery. dont ever let them go dead! they certainly don't "come back".

Also added a trunk lid gas shock. Just compliments the electronic latch a little, useless, but i like it.

I'm kinda on my vehicle "swing" it feels like. Just installed the roll cage in stuff in my Wrangler and am at a 'resting point' with it really. I'd like bumpers, winch and such...but the weather is perfect to get my car out in. Before the brutal summer gets here. Drove it 4 out of the last 7 days, planning on driving it to work tomorrow. Just tinkering on things, dial it in a little better.  :bigsmile:

Talkin with the body shop estimator tomorrow.

For now, I would just like to get the dings and small dents out of the front fenders and rear quarter panels. Then we can talk paint on the underside, and interior.

Mike, please post up how and what parts you used. Sounds cool.  :cooldancing: You could treat it like a porsche spoiler and take off when it pops...

Will do, i did a quickie mount out of 3/16" plate just screwing around. Not very pretty, where its mounted to the trunk hinge supports is pretty weak. it works, but wants to flex when compressed. amazing how thin the steel is there. works just fine, when it comes 'rebuild' time i will make a 'real' mount for it and gusset the trunk lid mount for it. its in 'working' condition, just needs improvements..
