Don't you have something in the house to clean or paint?🤣

Probably. But, this stuff needs attention too.

I blame Drag Week for the tangent.

Steering limiters on. That is a section of 1" angle iron tucked behind the stock stop. The wheels don't hit the control arms or fender liners at full lock now.

This would be less of an issue with the correct offset wheels, or a set of thicker wheel adapters.

And it's easier to move copious amounts of fluids and filters if they are "in" the cars. Some fresh Castrol Edge 5W-50. I swear the oil costs more than the engines. Out comes last year's used Hellcat oil.

The drain plug magnet says it's still dying inside. Good thing there is another bullet waiting.

We aren't taking offers until next Monday, hoping to initiate a bidding war. The showings are coming in fast now.

I wonder how easy it would be to bend those stops? Then again, probably easy enough to feel them.

I had the same ones on my Buick and autocrossed it regularly. Never an issue.
