Great find, congratulations.
Cam welding is a must and should be done right after you fix the brakes IMO...otherwise that car will LOOK nice sitting there with tints, carbon fiber, and LED's

So the car's name is Rosemist? Not Barney?

Oh totally. While it was only $400, I do have the brains not to start modding without some sort of slush fund.

Thanks! I know it's a must and I am definitely going to check it before it goes on the road. If it isn't done I'll make an appointment with the welding teacher (professional welder) at my school to have it done very very soon.

HA! I don't really have a name for it. Barney seems too childish, but that's what the previous owner's called it. So to make sure my log follows the rules I put Rosemist, plus, that draws attention to it

So the guy that doesn't believe in preventative maintenance is on the hook for getting a possibly un-welded nonfunctional V8 SHO that hasn't had a trans pan drop in 80k made serviceable???

It's SHO time!

I saw four projector sets just sitting along the road in gutters this morning, it's very cheap. I also dodged streetglow and Rose Mist body panels in the parking lot at work. Not to mention the rolls and rolls of carbon fiber wrap.

What's the deal with cam welding and why is it necessary on these?
