chris!!! I hope you got one of those hand saver majigs that snap onto the top of the can so you dont have to press the top the entire time... If not invest the $3 neccessary to get one. Oh and why are you paintin it? trading for track time? I want in (even though I still have a trackday credit at GSS that I havent used yet....)

my description sucked so I found a link to what i was talkin bout. They have them at home depot and walmart I believe.

You missed a few spots......................and why didn't you bring it all the way down to the race surface? Not a real track unless you can run over paint lines and get sketchy traction. Looks better, now get back to work on the other 23.

What spots did I miss?
it was painted down to the seam of crack sealer I layed in months back.. Its where David wanted it... My guess is, if you hit that crack sealer, it'll breake the rear loose anyhow...

Are they really spray painted? If so they're likely going to be slicker than .
