Glad your OK, Nick. Looks like rain, I do plan on coming up. If it pours rain I will not be coming, but we will see.

Yeah, that was me going through the alley. It's a short cut.

Tonight marks the first time I've gotten into a physical confrontation with a bum downtown. Dude said he was going to steal the Viper and tried to attack me, he ended up on the ground. Then attacked me in the car, missed punching me through the open window. So I got out, no way going to be able to drive off, and stopped him with a quick blow to the face. Luckily GRPD was a few hundred feet away and came to help with the situation.
Within seconds bouncers from Taps & Gardellas, Jack, some friends walking on the street, and some friend that were upstairs at Gardellas were around me. It was quite amazing.

Yeah I haven't been driving too much since I'm trying to tie up the loose ends. Once you see it in person you won't be quite so impressed, cosmetically it's not very good but I'm OK with that haha.

That's crazy about the bum, I live downtown too and haven't had too many problems with them, other than following me or getting pissed about not giving them money. The majority of them are twice my age, it's so crazy they think I should be giving them money. I make like Negative $75 a day.

I am very very sorry, about not making it I had to pick up some marble for the counter tops and then had to do some other things and then 6:00 was here. Next time...Hope all was good.

Update:

I spoke with a detective today. It appears that this guy is homeless and well known by the police. On top of the assault charge from me, he has two other charges from that night. The police were looking for him when he started the conflict with me.

yeah the 2.4oz of weight savings really offsets the accelerated rusting of the vehicle and always having a super dirty engine bay.

It saves about a minute when you crawl under the car to fix it.

Also if you have all the plastics in place you will lower your chances of sucking water into your intake (if you have an aftermarket intake).
