^ it might be like that because it isn't a srt block it's a PT block.


And hey why don't you relocate the battery to the trunk. Makes bay look cleaner that way. Just a suggestion.

Wow, some seriously nice work done in here. I like it.


How much plastic carving did you have to do on the back of that front bumper to fit over the BFM?
