Default The Grond Chronicles : New Mods, Florida Style [Dialup-Painful Death]

So it's been a month since I moved to Florida. With two dozen or so mods to complete (that I have already bought), I thought it was time to get organised and get a few installed.

Chris (Stangkiller) came over to return my tools and to help me unpack. We arranged and organised my garage, painted and installed 4 new rotors and deleted my cats and rear O2 sensors.

With the unpacking, cleaning and organising - plus installing the mods took us all day, but I think the results were well worth the time. Thanks again Chris!!

Here are the pics

EG
p.s. there is a really wild video that I am now editing showing the results of these mods. I will post it in the next few days.
====================================

We started by getting the garage ready for mods

Welcome back EG! Looks like you're settling in just fine...

BTW, the rotor paint looks good! I guess it won't hurt anything where the pads contact, should come clean in just a few miles, right? gonna do that to mine this week but didn't want to mask them off.

In a few hundred feet, the paint on the braking surface will be gone

Very nice Stephen,

I'm glad you finally found some time to dig into the mod bucket and get back to work on Grond. That garage came out pretty good and it looks just a little bigger then what you had up here. I hope all is well.

Paul

Stephen,

Glad to see you're back in car modding mode. When are you going to put your ECS Paxton kit on? I changed my mind about going with a turbo kit and put an ECS kit on my car last weekend. You are going to love it!

Ken

Looking good. But two dozen mods waiting to be installed - . You are going to have a busy Spring.
