 >:(    :(      Oh  man, why???. I took ol Blue's engine apart to do some head repairs. After I degreased and painted the aluminum intake for my V6 2.8, I set it outside my shop to dry. Then it got swiped.  I don't normally cry over car stuff, but right now thats how it feels. I feel like setting a trap for these guys and going after them. I'm on the edge, it's personal, you know???   :-[

My nephew laid 4 Mustang aluminum wheels behind his garage so they would be safe, the next time he looked they were gone. No one supposedly knew they were there!

Someone stole my two 6.75" axles on the side of my parents boys two months ago, too. :(
