    Jacking Your Viper Up On A 4-Post Lift

    Don't know if this will help anyone or not but thought I'd post the way I do it b/c we run into unique clearance issues when using bottle jacks on jack trays.

    What is a Gen 1 soft top / windows worth?

    I'm thinking of selling mine because I'm going a different way and was wondering what is fair for something like this? Should you keep the top separate from the windows or as a package including the rear window? I checked ebay and it seems all over the place. Alternatively does it make my car...

    Waited a month for the paint to cure on my side sills....:(

    So tonight I'm pumped about putting the clear protective film on them and getting them back on the car with the new polished aluminum Zero Altitude Flight tips. Passenger side went great, looks amazing with the new tips (been a month since I've seen it back together). So I go to get the...
