Default :( finally to the shop

So after several weeks of waiting for parts, then getting them.. now having my wisdom teeth removed and just mounds of bad timing, I finally had to have her taken to a shop.. Ill be on Percocet for another week and I don't know my ass from a hole in the ground and I need my car done by the time I come off these things. So there she goes..

1. Wouldn't start
2. Broke the oil dipstick tube (yeah i know, easy fix)
3. Im high as a kite.
So i didnt feel like fooling with it..

Nooo? With the bed extended fully and pressured lightly on the ground so when the front wheels come off it don't bounce up and do damage; should be find with one board maybe not even. That front lip is nothing, it has flex in it enough that it dragging on the bed wont do anything. Biggest thing to watch out with lowered cars and trucks is the tail pipes.

GLI lips don't really flex. They're pretty solid. And yes, backing off a flat bed is much worse. I've seen someone in a MK4 on bags and fully aired up, rip his bumper off. Back off and pulling on give different stress points on the tabs/screws for the lips.
