      thanks guys, my ginster was kinda rusty underneath, thats one of the reasons it got totaled so easy. It had holes and stuff in the floor and they were just bondoed up to pass inspection.

      Im doing all red tails, and I wouldnt care if you copied me because they look like total sweet sauce.

      well this rain pretty much screwed everything up i woke up super early hoping to do tons of work on my car, and i wake up to pouring rain. so i went out and gave him a good wipe down with some soapy water, he actually cleans up pretty nice

      Great idea, wash the car in pouring rain, no need to even pull out the hose

      took off terribly rusted battery tray (just about the only rust on the car), washer res, disconnected alot of hoses and sensors. disconnected shift linkage. still didnt get that engine lift


      heres the frame i built to put the tarp over.

      wonder how long this will hold up, the wind is getting pretty rough. had to hold it down with a bumper rebar on each leg of the frame.

      thats all for now.

      my frame idea lasted a total of 1 day. came home from school today to find it blown over laying ontop of my hood. good thing i dont care about paint scratches at this point. was going to remove the axles but instead spent the time before work cleaning up my mess and trying to fabricate a way to have a tarp over my car. Oh and the wind is so strong that the back of the tarp bungeed to the tree it starting to rip.
