    Thats a personal opinion. Im a fan of very minimal chops on shoeboxes, 3-4 inches max.
     
  4. I just went 4 front 5 back and couldn't be happier

    AMEN! "Fast backing" does nothing for those cars. IMO.



     
  7. Myself and my old man working on it one day a week, took a little over a month.
