    when i was done i asked for a "ride" and get this, the owner handed me the keys and said "i'll let ya drive, just dont scare me" :roxor:

    so anyway, got her out on I-35, got up to about 70 mph and layed into the pedal. i let out when my client grabbed hold of the dash. damn those cars pull hard and i think it started pulling even harder around 120, thats when Bob reached for the dash :banana:

    i never got anywhere near needing to be in 6th gear :ne_nau:

    anyway, here's a couple of pics... no tire shine, long dirt driveway :wacko:

    there's only 2 pics, figured you guys know what they look like :D

    Hey Robert, I had a question for ya:

    What's a good way to get the polish/wax build up out of the gaps in the trim and off the plastic stuff?
    Any easy tips??

    the best way to keep it off the plastic is to go around and mask off your plastic. back to black, etc works pretty well for removing it if you happen to get it on the plastic. horse hair brush, corner of a microfiber or a soft toothbrush will remove it from the cracks and crevices
