PlastiDIp vs. clear bra vs. Kayak cleaning. Oh yeah..new E55 pics too.
 
Spent one hell of a weekend with my friend. Did some wrenching on the Lightning, some drag racing at Bradenton Speedway, and a 4 hour DMV session to swap plates, but it's all done, and my baby is in good hands. I can't wait to see what the truck does with him at the wheel.

Did Hellwig rear sway bar and Hotchkis leafs on the truck. This was Thursday so he was swapping to his 4 wheel drag setup on the GT-R with M&H's all the way around. There was a crazy headwind that night, but he still clicked off a 9.79 at 142, and we drove it 35 minutes back to his house on Q16 race fuel lol. That car is just sick in every which way.

The front vehicle is another current project of his. 70 Chevelle with an LS7 block, bigass custom intake setup, and twin 1150 carbs. The car is going to scoot.

And here's my baby before I drove off back home.

So far I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Got the Bluetooth all configured and my XM account rolled over. Now to learn what the 13 million buttons in this fucking thing do. The only "catch" I've found so far is that since the car is lowered via the software, for me to clear the concrete curb in my garage (keeps me from ramming into my gas heater), I have to hit the button to raise the car to get the bigass Kleemann mufflers to clear. Other than that though, she's a peach. Gonne give her a good bath tonight and take some better pics. The car really is in fantastic shape. Now I just need to get the G8 prettied up and send her off as well. Time to be a 1 car guy for a while and enjoy life :cool:

He actually gave me a one year warranty. I'll be sure to let you know the second the cupholder goes out. I know you're just chomping at the bit to yell " I TOLD YOU MAAAAAAANNNNN!!!!" ;)

Isn't that a maintenance item? You're supposed to do it at the same time you do the timing belt on all the Toyotas I've owned.

That AMG car is wicked. I'd totally drive that.
