Fixed my intercooler bracket yesterday with the help of z_carguy and duboval. I think it came out great, I just rushed the paint and it wasn't dry yet when I put it on. Didn't want the final look to detract from z's fabricating abilities. No more m/c rubbing!

Reprinted all my pipes under my hood including the radiator shroud and alternator shroud. Still have to redo the radiator and alternator shroud. I put a clear coat on them and they came out with a yellow tint. Will be redoing these later tonight or this week. What yall think?

Picked the car up from Cobb after having the new KWv3 suspension that AWD Tuning installed for me properly height adjusted and aligned. (suspension was my gift to myself for the latest work in Afghanistan).
New summer tires come in a day or two, some RE-11As and then I will be set for the remainder of summer fun

For my fmic pipes I put them in a long box and used hair driers / heat guns. My intake manifold and tgv I baked them in the oven. 200 for 20 min.

Freaked out on the way back from getting the RE-11As put on at Discount Tire when my FMIC piping blew off and the car died. Thanks to Keith at AWD for suggesting the MAF trick and checking the piping. Of course it's the third time this has happened over the years, and I put some monster clamps on the other side that blew out twice before. Thankfully was able to find said clamps quickly in my storage unit and install one on the offending connection. I was so certain the engine had crapped itself right after everything on the car was setup properly (just my kind of luck!).
