Another somewhat good thing is I make the school pay for the parts, and I pay them back later interest free. But I only get a certain amount to spend before I have to pay it back and spend some more. That somewhat helps me get the car moving when I don't have the money at certain times.

yah thats cool in my ol town there was a techincal school that let you buy parts and pay them back but as long as you owed them money you couldnt take your car outa the shop till it was paid which is understandable.

I have the sway bar but not the brackets to hold them to the frame, Their in my garage somewhere but I have no clue where.
Started on the left side to, but couldn't get it done because I had a tranny to finish.

Oh and a little off topic but, my 2gn likes boobies.

Well I got bored and decided to somewhat polish the car:

I know it looks bad still, but thats because of the camera and the lighting. Compare the hood and fender:

Eh I guess its still bad but oh well :lol: .

Image.

No real big changes yet, actually none at all. Still waiting on parts to start building the bottom end.
