      ill give ya some red dot door cards an map pockets for free buddie, only charge for the covers

      Pulled pan and found the problem cylander 2 rod spun #3 almost spun was stuck to crank #1 and #4 are fine. Crank.is.****ed and 2 rods.are ****ed. Car is going next week to get the interior fixed and stereo installed. While that happens I'm going to vist my father in New Mexico for 2 weeks. Then when.I get back and stereo is done the car is getting towad to NLS (NOTHING LEAVES STOCK) to get all the.motor work done as well as full re wire of the engine bay and megasquirt among some other things. I know.I know I should do my own work but.somtimes its good.to just let someone else do it. But this is the last time I want this.car.to be down for a while
