Got the front end buttoned up with the ATI Superdamper. I ran in to some problems installing the damper as it is an extremely tight fit and ended up damaging the threads in the crank snout, which required making a custom tool to repair. Got the engine all back together and test fired.













now its back to working on the rear end. Just have to figure out how to mount the tails and work on the body gaps a little bit.

Please keep that Rad new rear off the wall!

Also, your car deserves my DTM mirrors. My car isn't modded enough to pill them off.

Shut up.

That purp is very purp. Moar pics of it in the sunlight please!

Edit: OK I saw it in the sunlight. It's green. no it's purp! no green... hmmm reminds me of a color changing donk. I think she'd look eons better if you left the wheel centers silver on those 5's. But she may just be too outrageous for that.

Naw mang, it's maple syrup boil down time this sat! Plus, way too cold, and snow may be coming. We need a tad of warmth and then it's on. Shoulda had some stogies back when it was 70 in February.

Come fix my rust.
