Thanks and yeah, I can try to make it this year. After seeing your pics and the awsome turnout, it really looks like it would be fun. Just let me know the dates and details as soon as you know so I can make sure I can get the time off work.

On a second note, my FSWerks front and rear strut tower braces will be here today! Hopefully they get here soon so I can put them in before the meet I'm going to tonight. UPS always lags hard in my area and sometimes does'nt deliver until late... We'll see, will post pics when they get here though.

Make sure not to over-torque the nuts on the strut tower :-P

Thank you for the heads up sir! BTW, was gonna see if you wanted to help me re-design your dual sub box plans to work with the rear strut tower brace? Give me a call when you get home from work. Im anxious for the meet tonight.

Probably not much redesigning to do. IIRC, just drill a hole through the wood where the brace would pass through.

Ill text you once I'm on the BART.

I double checked the torque specs... 18 ft lbs. I love my torque wrench, comes in handy!
