Damn man you got some nice toysI'm gonna say that every freakin frustrating moment of this upgrade has taxed me to the limit. The wheels that were defective, and had to be shipped back and forth twice...the seat brackets that had to be completely reconfigured so that I wouldn't sit on the roof after buying Corbeau seats to replace the old procars that were there. Having to cut into my dash to make a touch screen head unit fit,.. The uncertainty that comes when you take a perfectly good working ecu ( that you built yourself) and upgrade it to the best available...for no apparent reason. Scrounging a different hood, and trunk so that I could carry out a theme..removing the perfectly good working Shelby tail lights, cutting them up, and adapting 1970 Mercury Comet tails in their place...removing the ratchet shifter, and replacing it with a gated replacement that forced me to adapt the console...Removing the engine in a vain attempt to try and stop the blow by, by building a pan-to- valvecover vent....converting the trans lines over to braided, adding cooling fans to the AC condenser.... The 200.00 stripe kit that doesn't really belong on this car,.....culminating in countless hours of body work,...and paint do overs to try and get the thing back on the road..
Just became worth it.....
I was a little concerned after putting that "sea of black" trunk deck on there, but all of my concerns just disappeared as soon as I put Scrooge Mcduck tail back on. The orange band that goes across the rear will tie directly into the orange band that goes across the front. I freakin love it.
MOF, I love it so much it doesn't bother me that I have to take it back off and paint the underside...( it stuck to the poster board I laid it on to paint it, and ripped a big chunk of paint off when I pried it apart.)
I don't even care.....the monster is looking very fiendish.
I'll use new ones at work for eight to twelve cars usually depending on the size of the jobs.I thought tack rags were one time use
