Default Moar pics, sorry : P

i bet u guys are getting sick of me making new posts but im trying to get past newbie status : P
anyway, got the hood back on, i LOVE this hood. i kinda want to put hood pins in it because im paranoid the single stock hood latch, where it connects to the fiberglass hood, may someday break or let loose and my hood will go flying off in another direction than i am at 100mph. but the thought of drilling holes in my hood are equally bitter.
im 90% sure im hittin the track this weekend, weather permitting. im a paranoid person, and i got the sickest feeling that the first time i get it over 5,000rpms, something is gonna assplode. still not real comfortable with the lash job i did. guess we will see. Isky cam i just installed.

Another show Lady- Why does your car say Corvette on the engine? We have a Corvette and your car doesn't look like one. LMFAO
