Big-Bird,

Agreed on Swinada's paint job. It is simply incredible. Speaking from experience, it is also difficult to pull of and have it look good. Just food for thought.
Thanks for the compliments guys, I will pass it on to the painter (my wife )
You can come and visit and we'll have a painting party..

I really like the fade paint jobs & yes your wife did a fantastic job but I think I might just stick to the shiney blue paint job mine came with... But I would be glad to join in on the painting party!!!

those are the same batteries I have, from Costco. You must have nice friends if they just drop off things like that.

Sweet hookup on the batteries! Nice feeling knowing your charging system is new - eh!? The outlets look good too. I am going to have to do something similiar but I think I will mount the outlets flush into the dash...

You are using 3 of these for engine cranking correct? I am at that point now where I need new batteries I think but dont know what I need (my 3 batteries are not marked in anyway). Any help!? It looks like yours might be 175 cranking amps if I am reading the label correctly?? It says 14 & then 27DC... what is that referring to? Any idea how much these cost new? Thanks!
