    Quick break from the build to capture a sobering picture from the 9/11 memorial. Thanks to all my fellow brothers and sisters that serve/served IMG_7238.JPG

    Are you trying to find an FR-500C? If so I just sold mine and could see if the guy wants to part with it.

    Nah, I’m moving away from the FR’s to go with a Fox lake head and sheetmetal intake. Thanks though!

    Visiting that 9/11 museum was emotionally exhausting. Brought back a lot of memories. Heartbreaking. For those that haven’t been, it’s a bucket list recommendation as far as I’m concerned. Hope everyone enjoyed their 4th

    I can imagine. My wife, who was my girlfriend at the time; she and I visited Boston and NYC on spring break 2002 and getting off subway at that stop was surreal. Dust still covered everything and the normal city noise was eerily silent. Definitely something I’ll never forget.

    Awesome build thread. Maybe I missed it before, but is there a particular wheel choice for this one? @musclecarresort

    I’m assembling some 1 off 3 piece Forgeline’s. The centers and barrels are at Powdercoat right now. I’ll post some pics after I get them back and have time to assemble them.

    New Interior is arriving. Went with black suede/leather redesigned LG1’s. They are stunning. Will look awesome with the black carpet conversion IMG_7282.JPG IMG_7283.JPG IMG_7284.JPG IMG_7285.JPG
