                Don't worry this isn't to make parts/molds from any of your mods.

                If there is some left over after my projects and the wife kicks me out... maybe.

                Oh please. I've been making fiberglass parts since before you got your license to drive boy. This won't be that much different. Plus I have experts a phone call away that can help me out in a pinch. Also don't worry I didn't spend nearly what you think I did and for what I am doing this will work perfectly.

                Don't any of you get your panties in a bundle. This will be a first in Contour history (and probably the last ) that anyone has done anything like this. So just sit back and wait for the project to be finished. This was just merely a tease to let your minds wonder what this crazy guy is up to.

                • Sounds like a hood project to me, but that's just my guess.

                    The waiting has been happening. The finishing has not. ;)

                        Yea, yea, yea... the waiting has been happening on my end too. Still no word on the block, finally just cleaned the heads today too. However they are not clean enough for me so I'm going to pay to have them hot tanked. Then it'll be another 3 weeks before I see my heads again after I send them to CA. Once the heads are out I'm going to turn my attention back to the shell and start prepping it for paint. Hopefully this should start to happen by mid next week. I'll end up having July 2-7th off so if anything else a lot should get completed during that time. However in the back of my mind I want to take a car to CarCraft Summer Nats... so I may have to put a hold on the Contour build and put my Camaro back together for the show.

                              Oh blah! Not with the kind of money I have wrapped up in this thing.

                              Got word today that my block is finished!! The guys are shipping it back tomorrow I can't wait to see how the oil squirters look . I STILL haven't taken my heads up to the shop to have them hot tanked. I've been dragging my feet because of the whole Expedition purchase and trying to clean up the garage for my little project this coming weekend. Hopefully everything goes smooth and I can post some sweet azz pictures on Tues next week.

                              • Taking a trip to a little place called Express Composites tomorrow to pick up some needed goods ;) Should have some pretty sweet pics by next Friday for you guys to drool over I should think...

                                On another note after my heads ship on Monday I'm probably going to take a small break from the Contour to get my Camaro together so I have something for CarCraft Summer Nats.
