That really sucks man. I started doing advanced things in my first year( such as assembling my teachers car by myself. I put the engine in myself, made a wiring harness, changed all the axle shafts ect.)

Hopefully I'll do some more competitions next year and get some scholarship $$$

I changed the oil on my instructor's F350.  It was surprisingly a pain in the ass.  I don't think I'm cut out for the career in the first place.  I'm more of a hobbiest anyway.

I still really wanted to take that class anyway.

I will be taking an autobody class hopefully next year. Also this reminds me, I need to change my oil tomorrow.

Don't stop fighting for the class, if it's there you should be able to take it.

I'm unfamiliar with the F350, but changing the oil on anything isn't exactly rocket science.

In your defense 357 (from everyone including myself saying your car is ugly), I saw a really sharp one come into my work the other day.  It didn't have rims or a hood scoop or anything.  From the outside, it just looked stocked, but very clean and it looked like it was taken care of really well.  So I'd say that these cars actually have some potential as far as looks go.

If that was my Mustang, I would try to make it look as close to stock as possible on the outside with a matte black paint job.

Complete Sleeper.

I'm still wanting videos of that thing in action man.

Exactly, but the filters on the F350 are HUGE.  Trying to get that thing unscrewed and not spilling a gallon of oil in your face while the oil is leaking down your hands and into your sleeves is a pain in the ass.  Not to mention, holding the actual filter while your hands are coated with motor oil can be tricky. 

Yes, I change my oil myself regularly.

New video, includes idle and some revs, I made it so you can hear the exhaust a bit longer than the other vids.

Since some people have become annoyed with me mentioning the car I'm just adding stuff to the pre-existing thread so stop your complaining.

We have ordered a dual A-pillar pod, like this for the car,



And I also took some pictures now that the car is all put back together (hood, windshield ect.) We're still working on making the cowl induction hood.
