Well.......

Got the clutch & flywheel done over the weekend. Ran into some major road blocks but about 16 hours of wrench time and some creative problem solving and everything is back together and running.

A happy ending?.....Not so much. Now the starter is not seated right or something. Making a horrible grinding noise on start up. Starts just fine but the noise is like it would do if the key is turned while running. Fuuuuuck! Those bolts are a PITA to get to. Not sure what to do now but hope it holds up ok till I can get back in there.

The clutch & flywheel themselves feel great though. I've never had the new clutch feel with this car so it's gonna take some getting used to.

So apparently trying to be nice and offering the state trooper (that pulled you over) coffee and doughnuts will get you taken to jail and your license revoked. Who knew?!

So, there I was, minding my own business traveling south down 270 in the lane next to the fast lane, when I notice a nice Mercedes coming up in my rear view. Now, I am practicing hyper mile'ing, cuz as you can see, my gas mileage sucks. I think to myself, "That's a nice Mercedes, he will probably pass me, so I'll hold off on passing the car in front of me, allowing him to pass." So I wait.... Merc gets closer... I wait... No lane change... Instead, the Merc gets right on my ass. I mean, right.on.my.ass. No longer can see headlights. Oh, now the hood is almost gone.... surely he will pass me. NOPE. Instead, he just hangs out there, riding my ass. Naturally, this annoys me, but I let it go. A mile passes... Fine, ride my ass? Pfft, drop it a few gears and accelerate away. I hop in the fast lane and pass the car in front of me. Merc follows right behind me. Alright, accelerate to 85 and get back over. Sure enough, he finally passes me... SLK 55 AMG... LIKE I STOOD A CHANCE! I slowed to 60 in silent defeat...
