...in a parking lot last January. Only about a 1 mph impact and I had to replace the front left fender and driver's door. The bonehead body shop, while doing a fine job with the paint, couldn't get the black (and slightly damaged) window trim off the donor door and just painted around it. Of course I wanted perfect window trim so I replaced it. The pic was taken after I took the old trim off and before I got the new ones on. As you can see, the used door I got was off a silver car.

...and after going through dozens of windows and windshields I recently came to my senses and got rid of all my subs - except one - and went back to my regular H&R springs. :-)

Austin is one of the leaders of ISCA DB drags. last time I talked to him he had 16 fifteens behind the drivers seat. car hit a reported 173.6db! these are actually rivets to hold the plexiglass in place because the regular windows would shatter under the extreme pressure. his spring are custom made 2 inches HIGHER than stock to compensate for the weight.

If you still believe my, I'm just joking. it looks like he has the window trim off and those are the rivets the hole the now removed trim on.
