Re: MacGSX's Build 2009 **56K beware**

Slapped the old head on... Its funny I see people ask about putting MLS gaskets on their cars with the shittiest surfaces and here I am with two mirrors worried it's not clean enough. I must have wiped everything down 40-50 times before putting it together. OEM MLS gasket with copper spray and ARP L19's torqued to 90 ft/lbs. Went together like butter.

Gonna finish sanding the bay and paint it myself. Send it off to get the body painted. Drop the motor I still have in and see what she does. Not going to wild. I'm going more for beautiful and fast now rather than just all go and no show. It's a money pit and I know it but I can't let go haha.

Put some work in today. First time in a long time. This was my very first time ever painting. Learned a lot. Made a few rookies mistakes but overall I'm happy.

I'm never actually going to get rid of it. It's pretty much rust free and it's good to have something to tinker with. My plans have changed a lot though. I'm no longer going for uber fast and empty. Now I want it to look beautiful and be quick. Just something to take out and cruise with. High 10s is all I'm shooting for anymore.
