Default Got my baby back!!!

I got my baby back, baby back, baby back.
I got my baby back, baby back, baby back.
Chromenut's baby is back!


Sorry, stupid ribs...

Okay, drove it today, first time in 5 weeks. IC just would not fit behind the new bumper cover. Not sure if that's because of all the rebuild, but everything appears to be in it's exact place so maybe just doesn't fit.

Here's pics, we used the old/wrecked bumper to mock it up so that we wouldn't have to cut up the new one unnecessarily.







Now here is something so oddly coincidental that I almost don't think it's coincidental - I just finished taking an online course in plastic welding, used to repair things like the urethane bumpers, and now looks like I'm going to have to use those skills to put something together to improve the looks of this nose. Old bumper in back seat...

Instead of "drive it like ya stole it" you can now "drive it like ya wrecked it"

Glad to see it back on the road! You can miss the dang car when they are not available!

How much boost you running with that huge IC? Hopefully not on the stock turbo. Are you going to put some sort of protective screen in front of the IC. My buddy didn't and his IC got destroyed by a rock. Pretty expensive fix.
