I agree completely, I have no idea why, but she seems to atttract that sort of thing. Get's pulled over 2-3 times a year for BS crap.

My girlfriend picked up ballons for a birthday a couple years ago, placed them in the back seat and the local revenue collectors immediately tagged her for obstructed view.

With side mirrors both left and right sides it's a non-issue.

I'd be more worried about how thirsty I am!!

And yeah, having two side mirrors negates the obstructive view argument or legal issues. No different than my sprinter van or any panel truck or van.

I'm more proned to getting pulled over in Oregon when I remove the front plate for air flow

...which is why I will wait until tech inspection to remove it

This whole build is awesome.

If you didn't live on the Wet Coast, Mrs. Stain and I would have offered you some graphics work as well...

PM me if you want any small stuff and we'll see what we can do in the short term, before you leave...

Sounds badass

Lots got done so far this weekend. Again, Ray is on fire and he finished up some additional skid plate protection for the fuel tank.





And Ray's beautiful seat mounts..



Ray was also concerned about the exhaust pipe heat shield collecting debris and rocks and working them into the drive shaft which is just above. We checked, and there was already some debris up there, so it was decided to remove the thin tin heat shield.

On Saturday, Ray let me know that he loves doing custom stainless exhaust systems...and he has decided the race Subaru needs some help in this department. We will be doing some cat elimination (for our closed course racing, of course). Ray already successfully modified the exhaust to tuck it up tight, and if you look at this photo below, getting rid of the cats will help us gain a good 3 inches of ground clearance, as they are the lowest item on the car.




This should be done by next week. Getting rid of the cats (for closed course racing, of course) also made David the motor man very happy, as he has wanted a free flowing exhaust since we started this project


We also re-did the submarine straps on the car...as the way they were, my nuts could have gotten ripped off because the bolt sat very low below the car Yeah, that was fixed. My photos are blurry, rushed cell phone again.




Well, David came through and found some stock fog lights at the pick-n-pull so the race car is now symmetrical!!




Tomorrow, Lonnie and I will be working on the graphics on the car all day. So, today, I spent hours cleaning up, removing scratches and waxing the car and mocking up some ideas. In one of these photos, you'll see a number plate from the SL350 mocked up. I like this a lot but may just use a sticker instead of the real plate...although, I like the idea of screwing the plate right up on the back of the car.







The next time you see the car...it will look very different...and very racey!!

Holy Smoke Patrick!!

It will be ok.....



Perhaps wax was the wrong word. How about, Cutting Agent? Compound? I had to get rid of all of the crud and debris that was on the paint otherwise the vinyl would have looked like crud.


I suspect Lonnie will prep the surface to make sure the graphics stick......that vinyl that was on that trailer I sold you stayed on perfectly for three years

Quick question, are those spacers hub-centric and lug-centric?

How about some bullet hole stickers... on the front of the car

Following this thread with enthusiasm! Reminds me of taking my brothers Justy to the sand pits and snow mobile trails for a summer. Nothing like catching air from driving up the side of a sand pit and into the woods. Car didn't last too long for us.
