    meh, don't stress yourself out about it Carl, Graham will figure it out. Honestly, I'd rather have to bend crap back/replace parts then have that noise coming from the motor itself.

    the engine mounts weren't torqued, they looked normal...and we probably should have graham or help him pull the motor so we can get a good look and measure everything.

    graham will tell us what to do. no worries man

    Yeah, get that motor out of there to get a really good look at things, plus the good 'ol Stanley. Find out where things have shifted before jumping to conclusions.

    engine mounts "look" ok but in fact have been destroyed which is the major issue with why the engine sits sideway. the left strut tower has deflected slightly but maybe not enough to warrant fixing. graham is going to start cutting large bits of the car off tomorrow.

    received my hood and fenders... all with damage. hood is garbage. right fender should be garbage. left fender is meh. I spent several hours with the hammer and dolly and fixed the fenders but I'll have to buy a new hood and re-spray the fenders. getting all my paperwork together to file a claim - pretty obvious shipping damage.

    dan and dan helped out - did the motor and transmission mounts. we got most of the wiring re-connected, the front glass is getting installed today. tonight we'll put the exhaust and underbody protection on, reinstall the radiator and start prepping stuff for paint

    we are only spraying new parts and sort of blending other parts. it's a rally car, it just needs to look kinda sorta ok from far away lol. so it's staying wrb as that's the cheapest. although we have cpd1's front bumper and might leave that yellow

    we also have a black bumper off steph's car from when it hit a deer. not to mention our original infamous ziptie bumper which is just fine... it only needs a few more zipties and it'll be like new!

    no way, it's staying. willingly changing things (such as haircut) has been proven to not work.

    well maybe some of the guys will post up cell phone pics/video from tonight. the down and dirty is the car drives and functions normally. we also came up with a new paint scheme/look that i really like and makes repairs a bit easier

    or ban.

    'cause last I saw it, it looked somewhat like this:
    [​IMG]

    and between that and my XT6.....just too much. I need some good news.



    also, did anyone do a leakdown test on the engine? or are we relying on it running great that it's still in good shape.
