I'm looking forward to exchanging ideas with all of you. I own a 2007 Sky Redline. I suppose it could be called my over-the-hill toy. I am retired and live in beautiful Sarasota, FL. If any of you have occasion to visit the area, let's meet for a cup of coffee or a cold brew. Just let me know and we can set a place and time. I haven't figured out how to post pics on this site yet, so here is the link to the webpage for my car: http://www.americantorque.com/page/0/3658/

Welcome!  We all love pictures  :yay:

That is a sharp looking kappa, wild style!



From that webiste, I right-click save image address then used the text editor here to paste it between the html tags like this:

Code: [Select]
[img]http://media.americantorque.com/photos/2018/02/26/Redline_9_2.jpg[/img]
For other images on your PC, I'd recommend imgur.com or kek.gg to host publically displayed images for free, a great trick is to have your File Explorer window open with the pictures you want to upload and then drag-drop the file onto the image hosting webpage; imgur will also begin upload and provide a direct link to the image.

Thanks for the shout out, guys.
It's painted.
I experimented with plastidip until I got the design I wanted and then had it professionally painted in a semi-gloss black. It sure gets a lot of looks and It's won several trophies in local car shows. I love my Kappa, but the wife hates it. She's a Jeep gal  :)

Looks great, welcome to the forum.  Nice HP numbers, what do you have for a tune?

I’m guessing he is a Marvin Gaye / Nine inch Nails tune guy.

Make the right choices now

I am surprised you knew that what with your head like a hole, did you maybe hear that through the grapevine?

Thanks for the welcome.
It's just a simple Trifecta tune with a low restriction cat that was already installed when I bought the car. I really don't know that much about it other than to say it's quite peppy enough for this ol' man  :lol:

Very nice!

I am currently in Ft. Lauderdale.  My parents live in Sarasota so I go there often.  I will try to make my next trip up there with the Soltice and hit ya up.
