    Took it to the Summit Racing Monday night cruise-in and won a Cool Cruiser trophy. My friend Jimmy won a $50 gift certificate door prize.

    Somewhere around 250-350 is the usual number but with the overcast sky like today I'm guessing 200-225 cars. It fills up over 3/4 of the parking lot.

    Well still painting.. Been an all day performance this time.. It got too hot out when I was on my last coat of base.. It did get up going down decent...as I finished the very last piece my compressor DIED.. Glad I never got rid of the last one that was broken and had issues.. Took parts and peices from each one.. Got it up and going after about 2 hours and I just layed down first coat of clear.
    This compressor built from the two actually works better than each of them did seperately, quieter and faster! :D

    finished installing the Taurus fan... just have to get some sealing tape to seal some openings... right now I still can't get the car to idle without overheating but maybe if I seal up the shroud it will...
