Robert, congrats and good luck with your build. I see you're going with an A&A. I live in SoCal, so I gotta get a system that's CARB certified. I'm planning on an A&A sometime in March or April. Did you purchase directly from A&A or a vendor? I've sent a request on A&A's site, but haven't gotten a reply. I have a quote from TPSMAK but wonder if I'd get a better price direct from A&A? Thanks

Heh, good times. You know, I read stories like this and I am kinda happy that I'm single and have no kids.

Every once in a while, I get the feeling that it might be nice to have somebody around to share in trials and tribulations of life or maybe a kid to get as excited about my hobbies as me, and a tear comes to my eye, but...

Buddy got it from Josh just give them a call direct He will get the phone 99% of the time. They are the best that you will deal with for sure. THIS MAKES MY 2ND SET UP FROM THEM DIRECT. You will love it man. But let me tell you this go with the meth for safety and the TI head unit with the 3.6 pulley.

This unless you are going to go crazy with the YSI and totally rebuild the small block out with forged parts in it. Robert

Been married now for 35 years but if something did happen I sure wouldn't do it again at my age. Kids all grown and out with 2 G/kids.

Hope the neck feels better, I feel your pain. 3 herniated discs for me. Putting my supercharger about killed me. Now I have a bathroom to gut and redo this month....ugh.

My a-pillar is still at Ortiz ....talked to them today and it is in the final sanding stages, so much for the 2 week turn around, but I'm excited to see how it turned out.

I agree, simple 1 day job, though the exhaust manifold swap slowed me down on my build.

Let's se some pics! How's the a-pillar coming along? Should have mine back next week, but I'll be in vegas so it will have to wait till I get back.

Got me a new pillar got it sanded down, also got the 3 pods cut out down to the size I want. A good friend of mine does a lot of F/glass work said he would mark them up for me and do the placement & work on them on Monday. Just going to let him do that then by thur r Friday take the pillar to the shop to let them put something on it.
