yes you do lol. amidst the mountain of crap in the back seat ( it was outside, I have no idea where to store it so I finally had the chance to bring it in and start storing stuff under those shelves haha) I tried to make sure nothing touched the seats.

Yeah I KIND of have an idea of what I'm doing, but I always think of stuff daily. A new way to do something or a new challenge, doesn't matter. I wasn't sure where to start either so I just kept removing stuff I knew I didn't need.

Ben I'll probably put one up this weekend if I get the motivation to do it lol.

LOL, that's the easy part. I think putting stuff in and making it work will be the tough part.

Im actually not concerned at all about the making stuff work part. (at least for the front end)

its honestly more (how can I get the tools and supplies like metal I need with hardly any money) that and I only have a few hours every other day during the week to work on it.

I'll just drop this here too.... I'm working on a thread but it will take some time to get together lol


Quote:
hah.

SO yeah......

because racecar....





thought this one was kinda funny


and yeah it's been stripped pretty well and ready for me to cut :)


Of course it's not in there but I had to just test fit it because it was cool. The real position is merely around an inch more backwards, 2-3 inches lower at the front of the engine since it's tilted back some right now. overall the whole thing probably needs to be about 2 inches lower but I need to cut the subframe in order to do any more test fitting (and I'll add the trans to it next time)

what car is that motor from?
btw Mike, i'll probably be doing a rear seat delete sometime soon...

It's official, i won't be putting on the kit until this spring. i've come to the conclusion that even if i were to put the kit on this month, how long would i get to drive it? the snow looks like it will be here on Saturday, and i don't drive my SVT in the winter. hopefully this will give me time to save up for a clutch upgrade.
ohhh and Black Friday is coming up and i'm sure i'll be donating some greenbacks.

just start the install late winter so it is ready the first day of spring.

had my tires installed yesterday, because it started snowing. Nothing stuck but I didn't want to risk snow on tires that are on the wear bars.

edit:
oh and I asked the guys at the tire shop if they could have beat $550 installed (roughly what it cost me otd w/o the rebates). He typed it into his computer and said we don't carry those, they must be a special one for the tire rack (I got them from Discount tire). Kumho has been running quite a number of TV and print ads for the 4x, I think the tire shop is just behind on the times.
