Default SURPRISE!

I got the biggest surprise I've had in quite a while last night. Waiting for me was a 2day priority shipment from BMI! (??)

I wasn't expecting this for a couple of weeks at least. To have one already is a real suprise. Thank you to everybody at BMI for the fast shipment, and thanks to everybody here for putting up with my sillyness!

Now, I've got a big decision to make.... do I dare run this work of art at my local asphalt parking lot track?!? hmm...

I use chassis protector because my car is underweight anyways so I figure it is useful weight and keeps my chassis looking nice.
