Take some ******* pictures. Am just as bad about using my digicam but I at least take some with my Iphone and post them. Build threads with updates without pics are LAME.

arranged for my tuner to come to the shop for initial cranking of motor (so he can supervise it and make me a base map before we crank it for the first time)

Good call on that fiberglass top!

Sucks for your friend though, what the hell did they use to pack his top, bricks?

cardboard box that top came in is actually WAY heavier then top itself. they just bubble wrapped that bitch but i must be honest - they could have packet it better.
