finally got my car back from Maaco, the ram air is gone and got a beautiful paint job! the new wheels didn't work out right (boyds smoohtie II) even though the frame is notched the 5" BS still scrapes the side wall of the tires not the rim. I might go for a little thinner tires instead of the 315 35 17 MT DRs. A few more issues to clear then she's ready for the road. :6:

my camera is shot but i'm goin to Michael's tranny in Atco this am to rule out tranny issue if you are from the area check it out. This is my fourth car painted in the same Maaco and so far this is the best (they finally got it) they used to paint mouldings, intercooler, etc.. but this time i'll give them thumbs up. Fixed the hole in on the hood and pillar cracks, paint the door jambs, new bumper mouldings, flat black paint where it belongs, new jet black paint with clear coat, all for $1,500 bucks.

crazy busy dude now that i'm retired i can't believed it but i'm busier now more than when i was employed, bought a house in Cherry Hill (didn't move yet) and doin some TLC on it and @ the same time doin some stuff on my other house so i can get rid of it. Saw your car over @ Mikey looks nice , Mikey ruled out tranny problem for my car instead it needed a new coil pack and he dropped me off to a friend's car dealership in Berlin to pick up a car for a day or two ( an 03 500 SL convertible). later dude.
