Headsuponline.com, they have four different colors. Black, grey, red, and yellow.

The black is 56, grey is in the 80s the other two I'm not sure.

bought some metal today for the frame. 20 feet of 2x1x1/8" rectangular tube, 4ft of 1x1/8" square tube and a 12x24x1/8" piece of steel plate.

I only needed 8 feet of the rectangular tube, but they wanted to charge me for the whole 20ft anyway, so I took all of it. A friend said they wanted the other half and would pay for their half anyway, so success. Much better than I thought though. onlinemetals has the same tube in 8ft for $35. I paid $40 for 20ft. All said and done, my frame should cost $50.

Well I ordered that headliner kit for my car on thursday the 11th. I paid the extra for 1 day shipping so I would have it for today on my day off. My wife is out of town and I have the whole house to my self and I figured it would be perfect I could bring the headliner in the house and work on it in the living room in front of the big screen.

I have yet to receive it, I just called and to check the order progress. It says it wont be here till the 16th!

So I just called and got someone who could barely speak english, after being on the phone for 15ish mins. I'm getting my full shipping cost refunded. He said the item I bought does not qualify for 1 day shipping, only 2-3 day ground. That is a mistake on their part and they would refund all my shipping money back to me.

I would had just been happy to refund the extra for the one day, but i'm not complaining. Great customer service in my book. I was hoping to get angry with them. lol

Oh I hate shipping mistakes... that drives me crazy when you plan something around expecting to get the item on a certain day, and then it doesn't show up.

I did a ghetto-fabulous "shut the hell up" mod to the Honda, and used jubilee clips to clamp down the rattling exhaust heat shields. Now it's quiet enough that I can hear the squeaking brakes instead. Also installed my order of superbrightled.com lights, can't wait to see tonight what the results are.

Then took the GTO for a drive, saw a nasty C5 Corvette (although a little too flashy with a bunch of unpainted carbon fiber) at the gas station, and generally tried to avoid the fuzz.

Yeah, you have the perfect temper tantrum worked up, and then they do the right thing. Leaves you kind of frustrated and feeling vaguely guilty...
