Last but not least! I am never one to bash/hate on anything on my blog but this really pissed me off!! I have not used my Honda-Tech login in YEARS! So, today I decided I wanted to register with a new name and start a build thread. Might as well being I have a thread everywhere else, and I like to share my journey with everyone. I stopped posting on that board for my own reasons, which i’m sure is not a big surprise to anyone! I put all my opinions away and tried to start fresh, and what happend?? DENYED!!!! Their ignornat interface wouldn’t even let me use the username I choose! Well, shit gave it a second, third, AND fourth try with different choices and once again DENYED!!!  I was not requesting anything bad, rude, or voulgar, just my name!! Wow, so enough said!! Since it is all about just being able to share my passion and my build, I am now going to have a friend post it for me.  Their retarded crap shouldn’t keep a good build like mine from being posted. Uhhh okay I will take my prozac now boys and girls!

 

Until Next time……

I woke up at butt ass crack of dawn today, struggling to get out of bed thanks to the good old time change! Bla!!! Even after my daily dose of Starbucks I was struggling!! I was really dragging until I opened this neat little box .. As, soon as I removed the neatly packed cushoning my eyes were wide open and I was now wide awake!! The beatuies hiding in this box are sexy!  They are way more then what I was expecting!!

R is for Red!

Yep, I  should be fired from writing blogs! It has been 2 weeks since I have updated the blog! I can thank my hectic career and life for the lagging! The past few weeks have been crazy for me! Buying of K goodies, my career, and family have really tested my multi tasking skills! After a late evening of a photoshoot at Confidental, and an evening out downtown I seemed to rest up enough to get the paint finished up on the rollcage.  Just as I suspected, I am super happy with the results! Now it’s  time to dry and unmask my newspaper that sure came in handy for masking every nook and cranny of the R. 

BIG thanks to Mr.Nguyen and my girls, Soleil and Kai Kai for all their help masking, 2 and 6 year olds sure can mask! Haha!

Supplies!
