I think this place isnt that strict and wants your money and dont care if you kick the bucket, but if you do.. your in the hospital parking lot [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] and they got love for you, and a big bill.



But all jokes aside, I bet there is not many rules other than a helmet.

Nice! I just saw the forecast for Preston County "6-8 inches possible overnight" that is crazy, but on to the topic at hand, I do appreciate the fact that it is in the Hospital parking lot, lol, just need to convince the wife that it is a good idea now. Jdubz is upset that he has to work, he wants to enter his Speed6.

I'm probably not going to go very hard on Foxrod at this event, I don't want to hit a cone and scuff up the paint. I'd probably cry if it got scuffed from a cone :rant:

Wax it up tomorrow.

You won't do any permanent damage on a cone if you have a good coat of polish/wax.

It's a black car, dust leaves marks lmao I'm not too worried though if they're small cones, it had 11 coats of clear sprayed on it before I wetsanded it and I've got about 7 coats of wax built up on it. When I start to wax, I wax it once with a cleaner wax, then go back over it twice with a carnauba builder wax using different applicator pads and microfiber towels.

get yourself some painters tape and put it in the areas where you think the cones will hit. the tape won't hurt your paint.

That's what I'll be doing, we have this cool clear tape (kinda like packaging tape only not as sticky) but it's meant for doing custom paint work. An instance when you need to see the color your covering so you get get the right shade. Mostly for the color shifting paints.

No, we just didn't get a chance to get a picture of both of them together. And it would be kinda nice to have one before the weather gets really bad.

I hope the snow quits so we have a good turnout.

But as long as the event is on I'll drive. The Evo should feel at home.

I have only had the Sky in the rain 2x, I had the rear break loose on me in a very gentle turn in the rain and decided there's no reason to drive it when it's bad, I have other cars for that. As long as I keep the Sky out of boost it's very predictable, but boost hits at about 2600 RPMs.

11 coats of clear? thats alot man. the most iv ever done is 4 lol



The solstice has 8 coats on the hood, fenders and diffuser from the guy that made them for us. I would be willing to say thats why they look a million times better than the factory paint.
