About me and my passion for cars

---Offering websites (I do it for a living, it's ok) for automotive work on my car in the Midwest, if you have skills or items in exchange I'll more than likely set you up with a website in trade---

When I was young I played with electronics kits, in my mid-teens I started toying with friend's cars, installing radios, lights and what not. Once I got my first car (omni), I installed a high-output alternator, extra battery and had more lights than a minisub. I've been in 'love' with cars since I was 19 and got my 300zx, due to it's 200k+miles and my sporty attitude I lost it, gained 2 children and a wife...

My love was always for electronics until my friend Jason (I love your 7ft tall ass still ****er) had a '64 cuda, got JUST the drive-train upgraded, punched it, lifted the front 2 and bent the frame.. He sold the drivetrain and lost his passion in cars... I found mine. I've helped many friends with electronic-related issues with their cars, and often got mechanical and body work done in exchange.

If your from the midwest and need anything website, electronic or fiber-glass related, and have skills in other automotive-aspects, add me to your list... I'll drive for a work-4-work exchange.

I'm currently the proud owner of a 01' SC2 3door coupe. My daily-driver / 2nd wife. My wife owns a mid90s acclaim and taurus, we prefer to drive around in the SC2 tho. Anyways, if your within a couple hundred miles and have something to offer, lemme know.

SunRoof Sparkler

Filed under: 2001 Saturn SC2 (6th Rock)

Got all wiring mounted, an additional toggle in my little toggle-cluster design, and demonstrated the theory and equipment. Appears mounting of the motors-gears-braces will be my primary concern. Tomorrow I'm going to see if the original sunroof-motor...

Filed under: 2001 Saturn SC2 (6th Rock)

I've just discovered my camera-cord, I should have some pics up shortly. Tomorrow I'll be mounting my floor-board lighting, purchasing the equipment for my custom sunroof/sparkler install, and will hopefully get the wiring for it ran. Won't get the hardware...
