      Not getting the car back anytime soon man. It's been in the shop for 6 months with little progress. and I'm leaving the country for 2 years before the end of the month.
      Looking for a 3.46 or lower LSD. Lets make a deal.

        got my car back today

        got it back from a fresh paint job and had the body shop mount the landing pads for me. he told me it took him 3 mins to do. im sure it would have taken me 3 sun rizes to get them on . heres a pic . its a bit far away but you can zoom in and see them up there. tomorrow ill take close ups

              What big pictures you have. haha

              Looks good though. I dig the painted bumpers and the color matched top too(oddly because i usually don't).

                  Here's a nice hidden detail.

                  Use these studs, they go from the roof bolt diameter to the roof rack bolt diameter, no need to drill out the #4 pads! The holes need to be SLIGHTLY elongated to fit, but you can do that by simply rubbing the bolt on the plastic for a few seconds. The fit it really, really good! Just need matching lock nuts, and some washers.

                  I also chose to cut a rubber pad to go between the landing pads and the roof to help with scratches.



                  Drive it hard. Maintain it well.
