Eli, my co-worker Julio recommended your videos and as I start a new job soon, I needed a quick course on adding a user with AD and while I've added accounts at the local level, I'm now prepared to add users to a domain now. Thank you for your easy going attitude on the subject.

I wish I saw this video first. I came across the one for the P226 and tore down the gun to a bare frame. After one hour of reassembly, I almost worked but DA didn't work anymore.  I found yours and noted I didn't have to remove the main trigger spring at all! This easily would have saved me 30 min.  THe cause was the small return spring behind the hammer's pivot point, buried a bit inside the frame. I didn't realize my spring guide (that rests under the the hammer) was sandwiching the spring. I then realized the spring had to be on TOP of the silver bar imbedded in the hammer. Once I got that sorted out, everything went into place.  Your method, now that I've done this twice, is far better. Could be condensed into one vid but beyond that, excellent.  I think I can now do this in about 10 minutes now.  Thanks again!

I love the overall look of the 1999 Daytona Coupe. Being an 'average' car nut, and reading most of the comments here, one has to remember that this specific model car is one commissioned to be built when Superformance asked Peter Brock to essentially engineer a reboot of the original design. For those that believe any car-body that's built out of fiberglass is a 'kit car' must not think a whole lot about Corvettes (another Peter Brock creation.)  The term is highly misunderstood by the general public but that's another different discussion.  

When Peter first talked about his contract with Superformance, he was given freedom to do a lot with a streetable version of the race car. His personal Coupe he brought with him, has no door handles, glass hatch and roll-down windows, not plexiglass or lexan. It is in fact a comfortable car to sit in. As Bruce Goldsmith alludes to, Peter wasn't allowed a the spoiler in the rear because Carroll Shelby was too cheap and generally, didn't agree with Peter's original design. Now with SPF, he could finally design the car he wanted to be produced.

I do agree that the wide-fender looks too added on. After all, the body is fiberglass, it could have been blended in but to each his own; look beyond that, I think the silhouette is downright bad-ass. In it's non-flared look, a Daytona Coupe looks a bit dated to be honest. I've seen quite a number of them over the years and they just remind me more of a 60's Jaguar XK series. Not bad looking for a 60's car. So in that sense, what Bruce did with his particular Coupe makes it exactly how'd I build one if I had the chance.

Mike, thank you for putting out the video. Helped me a bit on that one tricky part with bolt and the 'bolt-carrier' (guessing what it's called). It took a bit to position it right but got it done thanks to you.

The CGT still has an exhaust note closer sounding to an F1 car than anything that exited those gates. Thanks for the vid Brian.
