Real ballsy to get work done while you're not there to inspect it.
Anyways, what MOS?

I definitely agree, my friend has quite a past with modification/showing vehicles, though, besides that and our friendship I have a lot of trust in him and am not worried one bit. I am hoping it turns out as great as I am picturing in my head.

I am just wrapping up training for 0612, Field wireman, TSO, and whatever the hell it will be called next year after the merge with 0651. Really though, I setup phone networks. Hoping to lat move to 0613 (Fibre Specialist) in the future.

At this point it looks like I will be taking care of everything ~a month from now when I finally get back home, stay tuned and I will get pictures posted then of the installation. I hate to do that since everybody wants to see it, but I have my hands tied by the Marine Corps right now and am still temporarily stuck.
Pictures!?

I'm sure it will come out looking great.

But nice man, nice. Was SigInt in the USAF, separated last year. Boy things are changing, and changing fast. Thanks for serving man.

I just got off the phone with the body shop, it is going into paint later today and will be ready sometime early afternoon tomorrow. As long as things stay on schedule as they are now pictures will be up tomorrow night. Lets just bet on the end of the week to be safe, though!

Right on! I actually had full intentions on going USAF since that is where my brother went, but I walked into the USMC recruiter first. You are definitely right when you say things are changing fast, I am having a hard time wrapping my head around some of these new changes that are starting to take place. Oh well, I am loving it thus far and hope it keeps getting better!

ask him to talk to the paint techs about when to wash it - i thought you had to wait at least a few days before washing after paint.

My friend asked about it and I guess they baked it to help the paint cure a little faster.

My friend is getting the car now, and in the pictures it is looking nice! I have to run now, but will be posting them later today!

I only have the two, ill hopefully be getting more later. It definitely looks like an ST, so I suppose this should suffice for now.


They painted the rear bumper wrong, instead of the valence being black they painted the entire thing black, so it's going back tomorrow to be repainted, otherwise it looks like it turned out great!!
