    full throttle or else it must be broke but breaking it is just another reason to build it bigger and better than before!

    or you could buy a body reamer instead of drilling, but do whatever floats ur boat. and good idea with the white washable paint. im going to try that next time.

    you should ream the holes before you paint so you know where to ream them.
