Naw the number is all I need. We left the doors open and the radio playing the other day at the shop rewiring a bunch of stuff. The air suspension and light kit are gone. Actually ran the battery down to no crank point. As soon as it comes out of the shop, she gets a new battery. 4 years of running the dual air compressors and the Sub amp took itz toll.

Yep. I tore the front struts up to bad to rebuild. My friend/ owner of the custom shop tore them apart and they are demo'ed. I'm not throwing another $1500 down plus labor to fabricate, to go back to the stiffness I hated, to gain the low stance again. So he is taking the air compressors/chrome tank/lines/valves/gauges etc as part payment for all the work being done on the car. Right now it sits @ the Insurance check of $2900, $1000 cash, and the suspension goodies. And I get the car back with new parts, totally new paint job, and a few mechanical items gratis. And me a buffing fool! Nice part is the FE5 suspension has just a few thousand miles on it. Rides like new.
