It will be WAY easier to install. Just get a few clips lined up and then work your way around slamming it on. Start out at the bumper cover because there is a tab that you must engauge/force. Removing : the trick is to get first couple clips popped and then it is easy enough grab it and to work your way around. The initial pop was at 10 or 11 O-Clock. Pushing a trim tool up in there and prying from the lower side inside the wheel well. I tried just pulling on it and that would not work at all! Maybe I was grabbing too much and including the wheel well liner. Not sure. The last part was releasing at the front/bumper cover with that pesky tab. I was fighting that and the whole rest of the Flare was flailing around and I was worried about scratching the car. A helper would have been great at that moment.

The painter has it now. I have known him for 30 years and trust him 100%.

Well, I was looking at my car today and I noticed the Teeth were all crooked. I think 10 weeks of chomping at the bit will cause this. So, I took her to the orthodontist and afterward she came out with a couple of braces on her.

Finally got this car to Irwindale last night for the very first time. We have a new Person prepping the track and he knows what he is doing. The track surface at the starting line was the best I have ever seen it. Add that to these big honking Hoosier DBR's and the car dead hooked on every pass. When they first started running at 5PM it was still pretty hot outside. Maybe 80 deg. First pass I did not get a time slip. Then it ran a 6.57. 6.55 and 6.56 before Dinner. After I ate and the sun went down, it had cooled off quite a bit and the car had cooled down. So, around 9 PM it ran a PB for the night at 6.465 @ 107.84 with a 1.412 sixty foot. Then 18 minutes later fully warmed up it ran a 6.49 with a 1.420 sixty.

That's great news about Irwindale! It's rare these days to find a track that's actually moving in the right direction. I found the exact opposite at Music City Tuesday evening. They had to delay the start of open time trials because they didn't even have enough employees to run the place. The RFC guy ended up running the staging lanes and the wife of the couple that owns/runs the place was the only person working the concession stand. I knew the start line would be "less than stellar" when I backed in the water and there was a 4wd truck staging and a minivan beside me. lol
Great et's out of the SS too! Sounds like a fun outing.
