    Thanks man.

    Future, well I want ot clean up the dents/dings from the years and respray it. Pull the engine and clean the bay up. Im not going to do a crazy tuck and clean out as I enjoy having PS/CC/AC. But I want to clean it up some. Rebuild will def be in the future as well. No boost, no crazy NA set up or anything...just something simple. Little things here and there...its never really finished...

    Thanks guys...and about the hood pins, well I would prefer the flush mounted ones but havent pick any up yet. I just know I needed them with all the driving I do. C/F and C/K look like they will go flying without...lol.

    Im on the fence with this EM1.. You have all the right mods but emphasis on ALL. Its like you tried to get almost every part possible and cram it in. Slow it down a tad and youll have your self a legit EM1.

    Id dump the hood, really throws off your car.


    Those gloss white Starks are EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC. EPIC.

    Thanks guys.

    DarkCreep- I know what you are saying. As soon as I put the wheels on I was thrown by the hood. It was fine IMO with the other wheels and maybe with another set but with these it just makes it to busy. I am looking to pick up another stock rear bumper to take to paint and will be taking my OEM hood in at the same time. It needs to be cleaned up from the years of abuse and then sitting. Also plan on putting the stock mirrors back on. Always room for change =)
