    So around December/January I finally ended a months-long search for a new Mustang. Considering I graduate pharmacy school in May and the "quarter-life crisis" I was experiencing through much of 2014, I decided to purchase one of my dream cars, a Saleen S281. I searched far and wide and found the perfect one sitting all the way across the United States from me in the state of Washington. Despite how crazy the whole scenario felt to me and how much I debated, I ultimately negotiated and paid near my asking price for the car. The car was shipped to me and I received it mid-January. I've been pretty quiet about owning it thus far as I was waiting for the car show season to pick up and also bought a few pieces to get the car back up to prime shape (emblems, etc.). Now that spring is here I can finally enjoy her. She's my "poor man's supercar" and I am absolutely thrilled to own her. 2002 Saleen S281SC. True Blue (same color as my V6). 5-speed. 42,000 miles.

    It occurred to me that I've never really posted photos of my car, though most of you have seen it...HA! Usually I'm only posting in the photography thread... Anyway... here's my girl. Just a run of the mill stock SN, but she's my run of the mill stock SN..

    After almost 10 years of owning a new edge Cobra I finally decided to jump into a Terminator. My 01 has been down since August and I have no interest in fixing it. After some talking with the wife she told me to get something I really want. What I really want is a Mystichrome. The funny part is she found the listing. I went with Meanie to look it over today and ended up driving it home. I'm so frickin happy.

    I used to post on a lot of Mustang sites, now I only post on this one and its just in the gaming thread and on my 600RR project that I did over the winter and early this spring. Have not touched the Cobra much over the past few years, thoughts of selling it crept into my mind on a few occasions. Recently 2 of my cousins and a friend from HS posted pics on FB from a Costal Mustang cruise that they went on over the past weekend....that got me thinking. I do miss having the Cobra out, I would like to do things such as this again. I got frustrated with the car a few years ago after doing so much work time and money put into it so it just sat. I drove it twice last summer just to move it to the new place I moved into. As of then it ran fine but over the winter the battery died, it wont take a charge again now, I neglected to remove it from the car...my bad. Starting tomorrow I'm going to go get another battery and get it running and registered and look into getting a sticker and start driving it again. My days of modding are done, the suspension / engine exc exc.. mods were enough for me. Id just like to get a new set of wheels / tires later this year or early next year and call it good and just enjoy the car for what it is. Many of you remember me from posing here before or other forums and some of you many not remember the car at all, it has been all over the internet as some of you probably know. One must do thing on the list is getting some dyno numbers the sooner the better, the last round of mods I did never resulted in new dyno numbers just a few runs at the track. So heres to re lighting an old flame, perhaps I just needed a break for awhile, besides I have to give some envy to that Hell Cat that my neighbor bought lol

    I don't plan on doing a full build thread on the Daytona but I know enough people here like seeing it. So, from now on, I will post any new pictures that I have of the car here. Here are a couple I took over the weekend when I visited my parents. Sorry they suck, it was fucking cold out.

    Intake torqued down, rockers adjusted, valve covers torqued, 99% of wiring is done, waiting on fuel components from @Rolocut to get here Wednesday, some special cut goods from @95riosnake, and xr1's from my buddy in Florida. Thinking about taking the day off Thursday to try and finish everything for Carlisle and leaving Thursday evening!

    A new home. My wife and I sold our current home on Monday night and had been eyeballing this place for quite some time. We put in an offer late Monday night and after a little back and forth they accepted yesterday afternoon. 3,600 square feet, 4 bed, 2.5 bath, 3 car garage, partially finished basement (enough room and egress window to add a 5th bedroom, a theater and still have room for a workshop), awesome deck off of the back. It's a custom floor plan with 9 foot ceilings on every level, has super nice custom trim work and a lot of other neat little touches. We close on June 12th. Pretty stoked. Already dreading packing up and moving.

    I can't remember if I ever shared the plan with you guys regarding putting the OCD Fabworks logo on the compressor bracket. Anyway, I sent the logo design to Billet Badges and had them CNC me a badge. I went with a brushed finish and black logo to keep things clean and simple. I also can't remember if I ever showed the final logo design. If not, here it is lol. I'm very happy with it Billet badges ships out their badges with high strength double stick on the back, but tape just isn't how I do things. So I chucked an end mill into my drill press and started making chips on a perfectly good badge. Milled some flats down just far enough to give me a level surface. Then holes for 5mm bolts Then it was the compressor bracket's turn. Drilled and tapped a few holes That fitment tho. I tried turning the compressors around to see what that would let me do with the leader lines. This ended up being the only good looking orientation with the compressors turned. I'm 50/50 which direction I like more. The first way hides the compressor wiring better, but the second seems to take up the slack in the leader lines more. I'll have to keep thinking about it. After taking that picture, I disassembled everything to start prepping for powder coat and such. Spent a few hours on that, and still have several more ahead of me.

    While I wait for the quarter to show up, among a few other things, I decided to relax a bit and concentrate on finishing up a couple final touches on the @Carbon Driven parts. First up was the double din radio bezel. I still needed to attach the vent assembly, so that got the nod for the first task of the day. I had a spare stock bezel on the shelves so I pried the vent assembly out of it to use in the carbon piece. The front face of the vent frame was scuffed with 80 grit to prep for some epoxy. The back of the radio bezel got the same treatment Then some 30 min epoxy was applied generously to mate the two It was allowed to cure overnight and I popped the vents in this morning. Installed it and it fits nice and snug. Next up was a little detail work on the shifter bezel. (camera settings FTL in this pic, lol) Rob from Carbon Driven explained very clear reasons why he couldn't pull off the textured edge you find around the edge of the factory bezel. It looks fine as-is but a little extra effort really will make it look perfect. I drew a line on the masking to line up with the line coming down from the upper dash, then continued it down to mimic the factory bezel's line. (got a little sloppy in a couple spots lol) Trimmed away the area to be painted, then masked everything else (the edge of the masking may look jagged but that's just the sharpie line) I teared up a bit when I started sanding that beautiful carbon finish, but alas, it was necessary lol. Prepped with 220 grit followed by 400 grit Light coat of primer Then 3 light coats of black interior paint from CJPP (can't seem to find it on the CJPP site anymore ) Finished product! And installed (once again, camera settings FTL but it's hard to see anything in this interior otherwise lol) I still have to figure out what to do with the cigarette lighter hole. I'll likely make a little insert to hold the USB plug for the head unit. I also ordered some 4mm stainless allen bolts and nylock nuts to mount the compressors, which showed up. Two rubber mounts bolted together should do the trick in keeping these compressors a bit quieter when they kick on. I need to pick up some fender washers for the tops still. I also sat and stared at the whole tank setup while holding the leader hoses in different positions and finalized my plan. Ordered a mess of fittings, so when those come in I'll show you guys what I came up with. This probably doesn't seem like much progress but it felt good to tick off a couple more boxes. The fact that it was frigid cold didn't help. It was 4° outside today, and even with the heater running full blast I could only get the garage up to around 42°. Just not comfortable at all, and warming paint cans and bezels in front of the heater, then spraying paint huddled in front of it gets old quick lol.

    @ttocs, I think the term "pro" is subjective these days, and used far too loosely, but yes he's supposedly one. Anyway, great news. I test fit the laser cut mock up bracket and it fits PERFECT. I don't mean just close...perfect. I guess I should open a shop and start taking orders lol. Here's a teaser pic for you all. Once I have the real brackets in hand and some new grade 8 hardware, etc. I'll drop a proper update in here. To lighten the mood a bit further, I'd like to contrast the sloppiness I've shown you guys today on an expensive order with what I think is evidence of the polar opposite still in existence, and for a far less costly order to boot. I'm not sure if any of you have discovered www.build-threads.com, but it is easily in my top 5 most visited sites. It's run by a super nice dude named Anth from Australia, and he posts some of the hottest build threads on the planet with a nice, thoughtfully written narrative, link to the original thread, etc. Anyway, he had a deal about a month ago selling a pack of build-threads decals, and being a huge fan of his, I shot paypal his way without hesitation. Part of the promotion was that he would do a sketch of your car with each order. Being an artist myself, I thought this was a super cool idea. He kept me informed when he ran short on a couple of the decals and had to wait for another order to come in. Not a big deal after all. The envelope showed up today in the mail, it brought a smile to my face and restored a bit of my faith that there are still people in the world that take pride in what they do, even when there isn't a bunch of money involved. Here's a pic of the sketch and the decals, I think the sketch is pretty damn good. I definitely recommend checking out his site when you get a chance, you won't regret it.

    Finally traded in the X5 and picked this beauty up! CPO (with full bumper to bumper coverage for 100k miles) 2013 GT Brembo car... with Borla exhaust already installed. She only had 10k miles, so she's just broken in! While setting up the Sync account, my wife named her Valentine since we wasted all of Valentine's Day sitting in a car dealership. This is (sadly) the most powerful car I have ever driven, and I cannot wipe the smile off my face.

    Me and @Sleeperstang1994 have outgrown our household oven for powder coating and we've been wanting a larger oven for quite some time. Recently, Josh bought a power box and heating elements so now we are getting started on building the actual oven. We've read a couple DIY builds and figured that we would benefit from a 7' x 3' x 3' oven. Today we stopped by Home Depot for some metal studs to start the framing. The base will consist of 2x4 with a hoop that will extend up each side and across the top. This will give us a sturdy base and a strong top for hanging heavy parts. The studs we bought are simply used for the framing which will be covered with 22ga steel sheets and filled with Rockwool to contain the heat. I will be stopping to order the 2x4 and sheets Monday. So here's what we accomplished today. All the studs we bought (15 total I believe) Rock wool. After some cutting. One side done. Making sure we had everything square. The back and the front (door) had an extra stud in the middle for strength. The two sides will have the 2x4. Ummm, bigger than we thought, lol. We can cook humans! Then we added the top. Again, the base will be made from 2x4.

    Aside from the typical gift cards n clothes n nonsense, the new lady friend killed it in the gift department! She totally surprised me by taking one of my favorite pictures of the car, and canvas printing it like those hip fancy thing people do for their kids! Finally got around to hanging it up yesterday, it isn't exactly even but it'll do for now!
