    The meshlike stuff I don't know. I will have to wait for the car to get here and take a look at it better.

    Congrats on your find and she looks great! :2tu: I think you're going to be happy with your final color choice and going for the ACR is just a PLUS. Have fun with her and I'll see you in Austin soon.:drive:

    We did not get to take many pictures last night due to the truck driver having the Viper unloaded before we got to the meeting location. Some gentleman in a PT Cruiser happen to see it being unloaded and was there talking with the driver also.

    The Viper looks in great condition just needs a bath or dusting/quick detail.

    We had to call good friend Ryan Fox in order to figure a few things out about the car (open the hood all the way, pedal adjuster, etc.).
    He gave us a huge :2tu::2tu::2tu: on the Viper! He was very impressed with condition of the paint (even being dusty and lots of finger and hand prints all over it). Hopefully tonight it will get its 1st bath in Austin, TX.

    The A/C blows COLD! to the point your nuts will fall off, on the passenger side.

    We did discover a few things that the seller did not mention:
    A lot of Clear bra on the car in spots.
    Mileage was stated to be 6740 and actually is 6325
    Bear Erispeed 2 piece rotors installed
    No Spare tire and only one key fob (Any one have an extra one?). existing Key fob has a dead battery (we hope)
    Factory stereo replaced with modern Alpine Deck and front Rockford Fosgate Speakers. Rear Speakers unknown if stock still or not, No factory amp and no signs of aftermarket amp.
    Here is a link to the pictures.

    Custom plate was order a week ago.
    We still have to get it inspected so we can go register it.

    WELCOME! Got your Viper just in time for the fun to begin in the club! BTW, Sapphire is the BEST color... Only a select few of us know that, plus we have ABS... others are just jealous.

    I hope to see you guys out at the next event, a long highway drive to Sealy with a personal tour of Hennessey Performance so both your Viper and Vette side will be satisfied and after the tour free track time to get to know your new snake in a controlled environment. More details are at this link: http://forums.viperclub.org/texas-south-central/644777-may-14th-2011-vca-event-details.html looking forward to meeting you. Also please send me a PM with your email address so I can make sure you are on our regions VCA mailing list.
