Yeah I'd just sticky this thread at the top of the section for those that have left the forum or don't care to create a separate thread for their other rides. I think it's far too much work to sift through them and create a separate thread for each car. Leave that up to the poster if he wants to. Just a suggestion, but i think it would be awesome to scroll through threads of the awesome projects people are working on.

If we're going to do this, it needs to be done right. No abandoned threads. Some members we think have gone away actually still watch the forums and even still post once in a while.

Holy cow are you accepting any applications for another son? I'll even keep the stang clean wink

With that said, did you really run a 13.5 @ 108 in 1/4 mile in your car? That's an incredible time sir! Those mods must have completely transformed it into an animal. I didn't know those 3.8 V6's had that kind of potential!

Yep...13.5 / 108.
She's a sweet six with a few mods.
I never really liked the 'Vette after I bought it.
My son loves it though.

I gotta look around and do some more research but my dad was tellin me about polishing the headlight lenses to get the discoloration off but then you're supposed to spray it with clear afterwards since all the uv protection is gone and stuff. Anyone ever done it like that?

Yeah, just make sure the clear you get has UV protection otherwise they'll fade again within a few months.

Yeah it's pretty neat you just got your 9-7 recently haha
I've been kinda looking around for a pristine riv but I also realized that it'd be silly if I am just gonna be driving it around in midwest winters. I want to keep it nice when I do finally find something which means i'll want another vehicle. If I'm gonna have two cars to drive, I don't really want two of the same.

There's a guy on YouTube that goes by "ChrisFix." He did a video on restoring head lights and It's a pretty great video. I'd try that method of I were you. He uses the clear cloat method.

I used a professional/body shop grade urethane clear when I did my cornering lenses on my Riv, and the tail light on our Reatta. Yes, once you polish your headlights the UV protection is gone and they'll fade in a few months. Been almost 2 years now and my cornering lights and the Reatta tail light are still pristine. I used this first, then another brand that comes in gallons for other similar projects. This will probably be easiest for anyone doing small scale projects.

Took a few pictures of the 80 Camaro last night in front of the local drive-in.  They had their last movies of the season playing for their dusk till dawn Saturday night.  Also here are some pictures of the 87 IROC the current project that's been keeping me busy all summer.  It was a basket case when I got it.
