First drive since X-Brace install

Well, Some of you remember that I fabricated a heavy X brace and a heavy rear frame brace a few months back. Then got sidetracked. Well......I finally got the new chrome wheels and RSA tires on, got the sill plates on, front plate mounted, (hideaway) Mikes corvette radiator installed, and battery charged. So I finally drove it last weekend. Wow!!!! what a huge difference the heavy Xbrace and heavy rear crossmember made. No creaks or groans now. Even seems like it handles better. And the new tires with road force balance, smooth and quiet. I have an idea now to make the crossbrace even better, but finding the time and energy will be the hard part. D

You come in, in diapers. And you go out in diapers.
