Arrow,

My journal has not been created as my efforts to add pics to it haven't been all that successful as of late.

Killerformula,

The build should take an optimistic 1 1/2 years. This being one of the driving reasons behind the purchase.

Jay K.

Jay, this is a safety issue. "Pulling" lug bolts into alignment will stretch the metal and weaken it. This is NOT a normal practice and can result in eventual lug bolt failure. Please demand that Street Beast replace that front rotor.

Worst case... if they refuse you can always take the hub to just about any machine shop and have the offending lug pressed out and replaced. It will cost you a few bucks but without a new hub that's the only safe way to do it.

Centerline,

Thank you for the advice, Once we're ready, we'll get the car outside and give it an honest look. At that point, we will contact Street Beasts.

He can just upload his photos to this site in his photo album or as an attachment to his posts. To keep the file size manageable the photos should be resized to no greater than 800 pixels wide (length doesn't matter) and saved in the .jpg format.

He can also get a password from Jon and start a project journal and upload his photos there.

Photobucket works great until he is able to start a journal - just have to remember - if you delete in Photobucket, it deletes here (that is, unless someone has a secret I haven't found yet ).

You can use all that lumber to build an addition

OMG, their name and number are on the wood, that's a violation... run for the hills or be banned.

That is going to be one very cool project, enjoy and post often.

My goodness, you should have had them put the floor in. It is worth the $$$, they really do a good job of it.

Jay, please take Centerlines advice. This isn't a "we'll take an honest look" at it, this is SERIOUS. If you pulled the studs an "realigned" them somehow they MUST be replaced, and possibly the hub as well. They may "work", but their INTEGRITY has been seriously compromised. I don't care what they look like, what SB said about them, they would get replaced if it were my responsibility building that car.

This is NOT a SB beating or anything like that, this is a CAR BUILDING piece of advice plain and simple.

Brian
