Well it made sense in my head, which you've now got me doubting. It's also much easier to leave it where it is, than take it off, paint it, and reinstall it. That work is definitely measurable. Y'all will need JP to prove me wrong on that one.

I dont like painting them, because even when you prep, prime, and paint...they eventually chip look poopy. that being said, I'd paint mine again and again

Alas, I have been proven wrong. Regardless, you do have a lot of white shirts...

You can not argue against 5 shirts that cost $9. The old dirty ones slowly become rags to use in the garage.

I have other colored t-shirts, I just don't normally wear them when I am doing car related things because I don't want to get them dirty or destroyed.

So I am switching to LS2 coils. Here are a few teaser shots of trying to mount them. I need to go to the hardware store tomorrow or the next day and pick up some other parts.
