yeah, it burns skin too.  whats worse is if you spill MEK catalised resin on your skin, outch!  and it dosnt wash or wipe off.  its like napalm

Mostly engine swaps, I can get a 5.0 Fox out of a car faster than anyone!! (maybe not you pros out there)  and chassis set up and tuning, engine builds etc.

I'm a metal working/fab kinda girl.  I'm getting pretty good at patch panels and body work.  Resto Stangs .  Not bad with a welder, only mig.  Restoring an old Mustang tends to hone in the metal working and welding skills.  (I shipped all my tools back home and don't own my own welder,YET)

I'm not a pro at anything, but have had my hands in mostly 5.0's.  When I worked at the K-Bay Auto Skills Center I got to work on mostly every Stang that rolled in the shop since all of the guys were into Chevys and Mopar.  But I still have alot to learn.
My Stangs:
00 Conv. w/ 5spd and 5.0
69 GT Conv. w/ 351W and auto(work in progress)

My Prize Possessions:
My Snap-On Tools
