    Man it's been awhile...so with last post as a basis.... here's the assembly, runs great 200 miles on break in. But the POS black speed6 was a bad fit for my needs. So the "bring a trailer" LA blown engine Silver creampuff stone stock with killer audio installation PXL_20220921_233432254.jpg PXL_20220909_155743695.jpg PXL_20220909_174715992.jpg . Gets a heart transplant. Hopefully the running gear is good, but definitely will be better than the black POS.

    A deer decided it just had to run out of the corn stalks and into my car as fast as possible... Tried to dodge it but still managed to smoke it pretty much and it got the front corner pretty good.

    Kind of sucks but all is running well with the car which is honestly what I care the most about at this point. She'll be back to looking good hopefully before too long!

    Luckily my bumper didn't get broken at all. Yeah it was crazy and had a couple people on a ride along so they were freaked out too as it hit their side. Everyone was ok though.

    No windshield washer thing is right haha It literally just went from out of the corn to into my car within about 5-8ft. They seriously planted the corn about 3-5ft from the road which imo is way too close for this very reason.

    Mr. Fix It is already on it though lol Found this this morning where it happened so that is a plus I guess..

    Blue is my go-to....finding the ways a paid mechanic can destroy and hide.. selected good axles from the stripped many "reused nut axle" ends... PXL_20220925_195116992.jpg PXL_20220925_195142424.jpg PXL_20220925_195218441.jpg

    I'll leave on a happy note. Bumper cover was freaking great..... until you need to take it off.
    I'm speechless...latches will have to be added PXL_20220926_003743432.jpg PXL_20220926_003738381.jpg PXL_20220926_003518353.jpg PXL_20220926_003504962.jpg PXL_20220926_002521778.jpg PXL_20220926_002309242.jpg PXL_20220926_001732366.jpg soon, but the "tech" never thought of future...once I started was kinda cool to use a rivet hole punch on a great painted surface...GD

    Day really became memorial....walked into house 108 years young. Mostly as built. Just some electrical and water pipes...haha. So basement entry first and gravity told me of trouble... gore-Tex mattress liner actually did it's job. Speed6 will have a delay:) PXL_20220926_012328441.jpg PXL_20220926_012409863.jpg PXL_20220926_012440126.jpg PXL_20220926_015621999.jpg PXL_20220926_023535394.jpg
