I expect it to be in the car and running by Sunday morning, you better get to work. LOL, I still remember at the last meet you were like "Man, my dad will never let me get a swap." I guess he changed his mind, eh? lol. So sick Ced, I can't wait to go for a ride. Let me know if you need any help I'm only a few mins away.

Also, M50 mani, 3.5HFM, S52 cams, shark, etc. Get to it!
