That's the plan, I want them dark, but not black. I may just plasti-dip what ever wheels I get to that color so if I grow tired of it, I can just remove it.

Well brad got to work yesterday and found the problem. Turns out, it was the freeze plug, not the gasket. The leak would simply run down the crease and look like a gasket.

Talked to brad again. He said that my exhaust gasket just cumbled when heed took the header off, so that's most likely the cause of the exhaust leak.

Unfortunately he did say that the car probably over heated at some point. The water pump is newish and the gasket is old and the pump was installed incorrectly. So that's pretty terrifying but that's probably why the freeze plug is leaking. He is going to work this week to seeing if we can just replace the plug, but we are going to find and use a different head to be safe.

But on a good note. He said all of the internals look good and there shouldn't be any damage to the car. He hopes to have it mostly wrapped up this weekend if he can locate a new head.

Least it isn't earth-shattering, like you said. Nice that you'll get it back soon! :dancingpontiac:

Got her back this afternoon and she is running awesome. He actually replaced the PVC system on the car to clean up under hood and added these filter. Idles better since the hoses were rotten and leaking. More fun coming this summer!

Yup bought the lid. 10-12 hp just by bolting it on. Good use for $50.

Installed the 5.0 this morning. Best money I've spent on modifying a car to date.

My buddy and I finally got an opportunity to get our cars together. Decided to clean them up and go for a cruise. Don't mind the shitty iphone pictures, I'm no photographer.

Still, for a phone the iPhone can take nice pics, and I do know photography. :lol:

Mine surprises me with the quality sometimes.

Car is looking fantastic.

indeed you could. There are two other really rare colors. One is a dark green and the other is a midnight blue/purple. I found one of the Midnight blue cars, but it was a convertible non ram air.

Met up with a couple of friends for a video shoot. Had a little clutch issue, but other than that, it was a great time.

Video is being compiled. and there was heaters from me. But I sat there ready to smoke them. But while waiting for the camera guy to get his shit together, I vacuum locked my master cylinder and my clutch pedal stayed engaged. So I did a burnout, but it was my clutch. I wasn't all too happy about that.
