1994, Yep. I deflowered a 95 SC SLE.
I don't run thecomeup I've just been reading it for a while. Been riding for 10 years. Thats how I messed my foot up 180 up a 5 too fast, started to loop out and put my foot down. My one toe wasn't having it and popped out.

Sandrock, I've been looking for a set at the junkyard forever. I finally found a set last weekend. They clean up nice.

Sqela, no bodywork for a while. The paint'* mint and theres no major damage. A mis-matched fender started my shaving/moulding on my old car.

Don, I could barely believe it when i saw it. I never see black on black. It'* almost creepy but feels like home. The only cosmetic differences are the spoiler, sun roof, and dual outlet muffler.

firebuick, I found them on a 96-98 F-body at the yard. They are on all 96+ 3800 f-bodys and they are aluminum.

I forgot the thanks:
Curt (clm2112) helped me out a TON getting started with chip burning. HUGE thanks.
Ed Morad hooked me up with a few misc. parts in awesome condition and fast.
Ryan (gmtuners) helped me get started with tuning on my own and has helped me out a lot the past couple years in general.
Nate (LakevilleSSEi) for getting me a filter and plugs for a decent price
Ben and Doug for moral support.
And this site for being an awesome resource.

Thanks guys!

That they do. I had mine beadblasted, and then I clearcoated them. But it is looking like I will have to do that again and go with a powdercoated clear job, since that high-heat clear I bought and sprayed isn't holding up too well to L67 heat levels

Dude, I was just about to send you a PM about the car! NICELY DONE! How does the power feel? Got a good tranny to put the power to the ground?

It'* awesome to have you back in the game, Mike! I look forward to seeing some 14s out of that car

Awesome. I was wondering what car you were getting. Wish I had known it was an SE SC cause I have a 94 Motor with 68K I would have let go cheap to put back in that.

And you'll have to come up to binghamton with it sometime. and if you ever need front and rear SSE bumpers, let me know. I have a couple sets I need to get rid of.

Congrats on the car and take it easy on the bikes.

The trans has 60k on a rebuild and is the 2.97 HD unit. It wouldn't shift where I had the wot shift points (about 6300). This was after I adjusted all the tables from the 3.06 to the 2.97 ratio too. I got an adapter the other day to read stock memcals and I double checked everything trans related from the */c memcal to my current bin. I decided to use the stock wot shift points to save the trans for a little bit. I'll leave it like that till I rebuild my old trans.

But anyways it'* running strong.

Jimmyfloyd, I'll have to make it out there. I was thinking of changing the bumpers and cladding but I'll probably keep it like this for a while. It'* way too mint to play around with it.
