Now let's make this very, very clear (lol);
On or about July 17th 2010 (Saturday), I plan to take "half-the-$$$," my 1987 Buick Regal (olds 307, th200-4, 7.5" limited-slip 3:08-geared rear), 1984 Buick T-type 10-bolt posi-rear w/3:42's, Chrome-moly GN driveshaft, my new D&S Buick462, my "built" th400 w/torque converter, and EVERY-SINGLE new part I bought for my Stage-1 Regal to the "SHOP."
On or about July 31 2010 (Saturday), I plan on picking up my 90%-complete Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal from the "SHOP," and drive it straight to Meineke (already set everything up). Meineke's task is to complete my exhaust system from "header collectors" BACK, and inspect/correct our headers installation.
Theeeennn, I drive the Stage-1 Regal straight to the "auto electrician" so they can install my MSD-6AL-2 ... and inspect/correct ANY electrical mistakes created by the "SHOP."
As soon as I pick the Stage-1 Regal up from the auto-electrician ...
MY STAGE-1 BUICK 455 REGAL GOES ... HOME.
PS ... ALL labor fees from THIS posting on, are "TOP-SECRET" ... yet very reasonable.
