If you don't end up going there, I know the salesmen at 12 and telegraph, 13 and woodward, and 11 and I-75. If your looking for whatevers cheapest, belle is for you. Goodyear only sells midrange to higher end tires, so belle's price will be lower for wang chung brands :-) they do sell plenty of great brands. I'd be willing to take in loose rims and get cost pricing at either store.

Kind of a random question for the D tec guys. Were you able to pull the heat shield from the stock manifold out the top of the engine bay? We have basically everything off the motor, and are close to being ready to pull, but haven't disconnected the exhaust. We aren't planning on dropping the whole subframe, so we planned on unbolting the stock exhaust manifold.

Any ideas? I can't seem to get the damn heat shield up and out over the top of the manifold.

No problem man.


Alright guys i need some help.

I had a guy i know who was gonna paint my car. His garage is a paint booth and does painting on the side. it was only gonna cost me only $1000 for him to paint everything except the engine bay Sonic Blue.

well in an unfortunate work accident, he cut his femoral artery and will not be able to paint my car anytime soon.

Does anyone here know how to paint or knwo someone that paints that could give me a deal somewhat close to what i was getting before?

I have a front bumper and some other stuff that needs to go on the vehicle and needs to be painted so i figured i could do the color change at the same time.

Car is ready to have the motor pulled, the front subframe/motor/trans is sitting on a home made jig basically, and everything is unbolted besides the shock towers and a couple subframe bolts. Tomorrow we'll unbolt it, and pull the car up on the lift, and then start pulling stuff off the motor. PROGRESS.

Motor is out, separated from the trans. The clutch and pressure plate look practically new so that's good. The motor won't be here for a while, so I won't be installing until 2 weekends from now. Heading back to the D in a borrowed beater car...
