    Nice!! I just got my gen4, it was a little over 2 months. You can always talk to Nick at Lethal Performance and he'll give you an eta from Whipple on the blower

    I did just that! Snagged a set of ARH 1 7/8” x 3” long tubes with full 3” off-road x pipe just last week also from Lethal!

    How were you contacting Nick? Phone/email/PM?
    Thanks for the heads up! The price on the Gen4 sure did look good lol.
    Figured though I may as well go all out since this will probably be the last “streetcar” I get to build this way thanks to the EPA!

    I just emailed Lethal after about a month of waiting just to get a general idea of when the blower would get shipped. Nick Shadoin is the gentleman that helped me out.

    today i finally got around to putting my correct original terminator windshield wiper blades back on, along with new inserts. for the past few years i've just been running a generic pair of blades from auto zone. but it never really felt "right" lol

    C27682AB-5791-4916-98F6-C0A927A51DC3.jpeg Picked the car up after had front bumper holes filled. Am more than happy with the results. It looks fantastic. I’m not sure Of the nationwide perception of Maaco as a body shop, but the one here in Gainesville did a fantastic job.

    I'm debating on starting the car up today. Last time it ran was probably the first week in November. Might change the oil as well.

    Forecast looks like a good chance of rain next week, clean up the roads!

    I'm debating on throwing the Metco lower on again.... IMG_20210303_153935723.jpg

    I had seen your post and was looking forward to hearing about and seeing the "after" pic. Wow, Maaco did, indeed, do a fantastic job. I wouldn't consider a Maaco to be my better choice, but yours came through in spades. Very nice. The plugs are better than exposed holes, but filling the holes and a re-paint is such a better option.

    I know the feeling, Brady. The anticipation and excitement of driving your feel-good car now that Spring is here. I pulled the cover off my G-70 yesterday and it ended up being colder than I expected and very windy. But, our roads or pretty clean since we don't use sand anymore so I took it out for a drive for a couple of hours. Couldn't resist it. Taking it out again later this morning for a 45 minute drive to a seafood restaurant by the shore. Lobster roll and fried scallops are calling my name. LOL.

    Just curious, do they still use sand on your roads during the winter? Sounds like it.

    That's awesome . They use sand and salt. Roads are still nasty. I'd like to change oil in the cobra and get it to the shop. Then bring the notch home and do some work on it.

    Cancel the coils. Stock coils work just fine. And in some cases better than the aftermarket coils.

    Thanks Bob. I was very very pleased when they pulled the car around from out back. The guys who now I've met, are really big time car guys, and they take a lot of pride in the work at the shop in town here. I couldn't recommend the Maaco here enough.
    Yes those plugs were a great temporary fix, but now that the bumper looks new, I'm wondering why I didn't do this sooner, haha.

    I was thinking the same thing. It was more of a "while I'm at I might as well replace them" kind of thing

    If you end up running into issues you could pick up a set of stock replacements. But I'd wait to see if you have problems first.
