quite the opposite... mine went from stock to raped.
Trying like hell to get at least part of my system done in time for the drive.

Main reason for going is to see that f2 kit in person before i buy one

Oh yeah, really been up in the engine bay especially. The interior had a few changes that I'd like to update the rest of the interior to, but won't have the time or cash to do so before JF. But JF is what got me off my arse to get the turbo done, along w/ various other goodies.

Even if JF blows butt or gets cancelled, it at least got me movin' on some rather stale projects...

Agreed! I finally got my stereo box done I've wanted to do for like 8 months. And I was thinking about having my dents pulled out before the event.

And the F2 kit, ironic, since I already purchased mine BEFORE I go to JetFest. Too bad I won't have the kit on, but I'm hoping to have altest the spoiler rocking by then. Crossed Fingers!

Don't worry...

Right now I still have stress cracked paint on my driver's side front fender from where I curbed it 2 years ago, front and rear bumper covers are both scraped up really bad, my carpet is perma-trashed in the front, just worn and hard to get totally clean, both my front seat bolsters are broken (again, this is the 3rd time) and I still have bald tires on the back. I should have tires by jetfest though...

well, i'm putting in a new serpentine belt and tensioner sometime real soon, getting my bumper repainted (all the paint is flaking off) and I got a new guage bezel/glass. I've still got to sort out a squeak (probably swaybar related)

However, I've got a curbrashed rim (I didn't do it) and I have no airbags, which makes the airbag cover not fit right, and my steering wheel airbag cap is superglued together...

Yeah Spots, don't worry about it. I'll be in the car show with this. My new modification I made a few weeks back. This is what happens when you forget to put the car in first gear, and forget to use the ebrake. The car shifts itself out of first, and rolls down the street into a tree. This is the reason I ordered my F2 body kit.

I pretty much have got my car wrapped up. Got the hood painted finalley, got my suspension and new BFG KDW2's on, SVT bumpers. Still have a few minor things to do, like clean up some of the underhood wiring rats nest. But other then that I'm good to go. Not looking forward to cleaning my car once I get there after a 10 hour trip though lol
