Were those brackets included with the coilovers? Looks like a pretty beefy system there. Nice! It simplifies everything too. I think most of us out here can say we've scored a free rental once or twice too. lol... I'll be the first to admit it.

A power tour sounds like fun. I can only imagine how thrilling it will finally be to actually drive my Camaros. It's been waaaaay too long now. Tempted to buy a daily driver just so I can have a taste sooner...

Those look like a convenient gadget, but curiouos why you dislike stirring sticks? The Sherwin Williams manager gave me about 50 of them when I bought my epoxy products.

I use those. I take off the handle on top and hook my drill to it, though. Makes it much easier and faster to stir it. Stir paddles can't even come close to stirring the paint as well as these do.

Todd have you ever stirred poly primer with stir sticks? Lol

Plus I like the functionality of the pouring spout

Don't get me wrong I still use stir sticks when I have the paint and activator together in the mixing cup. I like that with these lids I can mix pour and put back on the shelf. No mess or over pouring wich happened to me multiple times pouring heavy primer haha

Has it been too cold to break in your "Mixing Mates" lately? Updates? I know, I know... but someone has to ask.

Haha it's been cold and 36" of snow has finally melted away!
I have been waiting the last 2 months waiting for my speedtech subframe to arrive.

It turned out that my original was twisted by the trans mount area. I don't know how I missed it but things should be starting back up soon

Here is a pic of the frame. It's just a quick one I took after I picked it up by myself and put it up against my wall lol

Hey Todd I know it's been a while. The weather is finally turning good so be prepared for lots of updates

In the meantime I gave my truck a facelift putting on some offroad tires new wheels and a flow master dual exhaust with a super 40 muffler. Ready for the beach and another bad snowstorm

Hey... nothing wrong that. Looks awesome! Beefy! and probably sounds more like it looks now. Grrrrrrr! I miss my truck. You probably find yourself not listening to the radio now and tuning in on the exhaust tones instead. Enjoy it!

Got to work today taking apart and removing the stock subframe and replacing it with the new speedtech frame. Did it by myself and really wasn't that bad. Still have to mount the suspension. That will be tomorrow probly
