      Cool seeing you here too. I noticed you put an electric fan. I'm gonna do the same, do you have a write up or any tips you can give me?

      All I did was take some of the harness and the connector from my parts car and "splice" the wires with the original electric fan wiring. Pretty ghetto but I haven't had any problems so far.

      Still waay to high



      Lowered it a little more, think I'm done going low. I'm at 23" gtf and honestly I don't want to be scraping everything all the time. My roads are pretty good, hell even downtown Chicago I rarely scrap, but any lower and things just start "randomly" breaking. Maybe I'll go lower when I finish up the AMGs. Anyways, couple comparison pics with my buddy.




      Also been thinking about getting a second car since my hoard of cars has slimmed, buick went back to my gramps, and the saturn has been giving to my sister who just started driving. I was thinking one of these would be cool:

      Nope. Lots and lots of hours sanding, primering, painting, re-sanding, reprimering, repainting. I used Valspar spary paint from Lowes, great stuff. Over all I think they came out really well, looks pretty professional if I do say so myself They are forever filthy though.

      Also, they are actually cream

      Well since the engins is now out, I was able to mock up all the brake lines. I will make the real ones soon. To anyone who is thinking about doing this, try to pick up some single strand wire, it bends great, you can shape it to whatever, and its close to the same diameter as brake lines.

      I have an actual bender but I'll probably hand bend since it's easy.

      Been driving 120 miles about 3 times a week for a while now, working on Strictly Pleasure's Top Secret Project. Messed up my jack getting the car back on the ground, but oh wells.




      And the project, hellamadtyterusted 240.



      And yes, the front bumper is a finger width off the ground, and yes, that curb right next to the car is his driveway entrance.

      I'll sit on 76 on my lawn chair and a beer

      WhenYou relocated your module, how did you get the harness up there?

      K lol.

      And all you have to do pull the harness all the way back into the footwell, then put it up through the ecu box. I did not extend it and it fits very nicely

      That's good news. I might relocate mine this year if I finish everything else early enough.

      So this past weekend I decided to take a little trip with my two best friends. Well, actually I needed co-drivers because I'm selfish . Anyways, we made the trip from Chicago to D.C. to Chicago in 25 hours. On the way back I was very sub-23" gtf, I would guess 22.5, and no skid plate lol. Here's some pics:

      Pennsylvania at midnight



      Wicked tunnel, must have been at least a mile long


      My buddies first stick shift


      Pennsylvania Sunrise in mountain-ish area




      The goods




      Found this picture on my camera when I went through the pictures. Check out that side burn [cool]


      And of course, what's a good road trip without a semi half burnt??

      I know those roads very well. That's probably the sommerset tunnel you went through. Did you get off of 76 in Breezewood? That place has like every fat food restaurant ever, and it's got a weird feeling to it.

      In breezewood/ nearby there are 3 abandoned tunnels that used to be part of the turnpike. The one is leased by a race team who tests their NASCAR car there for coast down...

      Anyways hope you enjoyed your trip! I may be coming out to chicago by the end of the summer with my car. My uncle lives in Western Springs, is that close to you at all?

      Pretty sure we got off at breezewood, We got off the turnpike, drove on a regular street for one block, and got onto whatev its called highway.

      Western Springs is very close to me actually, 15-20 minutes away, have you ever been? The town to the west is the richest area in Chicagoland (hinsdale).
