Paint shop was closed yesterday because of this "hurricane"

Thinking I may haul it over to the shop on Sunday for the engine, transmission & suspension work while we wait on the body parts.

Body parts (Hood, both fenders & 2017+ front bumper) were dropped off at the paint shop on Monday, expecting them back either Friday of this week or Monday of next.

Mods have started showing up from MCS, CSF, Enkei, ARP, Verus...lots more on the way...AP Racing, Invidia, JDL maybe...

Should be installing the 2015 motor w/new plugs, fluids, serpentine belt & upgraded clutch parts this weekend. Then on to the body reassembly followed by the rest of the track mods...

@Opie keeps wanting to wrap one in pink and get the custom plate "PSYPINK" but I keep telling him that the state won't approve of that plate.

They will actually but it's already used, at least as PSYPNK, on a local pink Harley with a female rider.

#15 got some more attention yesterday;
  • Installed lower mileage 2015 engine
  • New Spark Plugs
  • New Serpentine Belt
  • CSF Aluminum Radiator
  • Perrin Oil Cooler
  • Changed Oil & Filter
  • Changed Coolant

Currently the transmission is still out of it because somehow I forgot to order a new T/O bearing, pivot ball & clips....hopefully will have that today. Then will install with a Verus clutch fork & Motul Gear Oil!

Also should have the body parts all back from the body shop today....will be a busy week!

~300 a panel has been the average. Depends on his mood otherwise.

For this car he removed dents from the hood, painted the hood, two fenders and bumper cover for 950 so @Opie must have been nice to him.
