Spraypaint is down!!!

Some of you know but most don't. I wrecked "Black Magic" last week and it is in the body shop. Over $5K in damage. I was trying like H**L to get the ST front end but there was only 1 in the us. It would have taken over a week to get the parts needed to do the conversion and the insurance would not have paid for a rental for the extra time needed. The good news is that I now know what all parts are needed to do the conversion and my cost for parts is under $1K. Ray, i sent you a picture, can you post it for me?

Yes it will however, my screen name came from playing paintball! A few years ago I played for a professional woodsball team.

Sorry to hear/see. Austin showed a couple of us a pic last week when we were at K1. Hadn't seen youbpost about it though. Too bad you couldn't have gotten that ST front end. Would have been sweet. Hopefully you'll have your car back soon.

Think the Ford dealership didn't look very hard for you an ST front. Another member recently hit a deer and they got him an ST front pretty easily. He did have to pay an extra $300-$400 though to get it. But its painted and about to go on his car to finish the repairs.
