Army money well spent
#1
Hey guys,
Just got back from my latest training mission with the Army and put some of my TDY (Temporary Duty) money to good use on a long over do (and desired) upgrade to the car. I've been wanting to put the NASA hood to use since I purchased the car back in 2001 after OEF 1, and thanks to CJ Pony, I've done it. Relatively easy upgrade, but the "cool factor" for me is over the top. Looking at our calendar for the next few months I can start shopping all over again.

Ain't it great when it says it as well as does it. That's why I bought mine for my Q code. Didn't seem right to have a non functional hood. Enjoy that well spent money!!!! And thanks for what your doing for me and mine.

Very nice upgrade, most of my parts are from CJ Pony Parts as well and have all been great quality and nice price! I am going to do a NASA hood and upgrade to Ram Air once I figure out what powerplant I am going to build. Very nice job!

Lookin' good, Marty. TDY $$ is cool.

Korea can be fun - I spent a few weeks in Osan, Pusan and Taegu a lifetime ago. Do you know where you're headed yet?
