    I never even knew they were an option, but once again, GM was getting into their odd ball 80's tech at that point, lol.

    I do plan to lower it some too, but for now I'm ditching the rear air shocks and cutting a coil off of each of the front springs. That'll get it sitting right! Damn front end sits up super high!

    Not much of an update yet, it rained a couple of days ago, went out with some 4000 grit and wet sanded the whole car down while it was raining. The car now has a dull shine, instead of just being dull.

    I did fire it up again, even though I haven't moved it yet...

    Sounds good to me.

    Panning to polish up the paint now that it is sanded in 4000?

    Nah... I noticed the paint is wearing pretty thin finally. It honestly needs another respray, but it has been about eight years since I did it.
