    Lol shinee bam! Haha leg is u.g.l.y. but it is a small area. I was just thinking about another project I have in mind. It involves buying per mixed paint ready to spray...just dump it in the gun and add air. A local paint supplier is willing and more than capable of ready to spray custom paint colors either house of color or anything DuPont. Lotsa DIY hotrodders around here that can't mix paint, but spray fantastic. Might be you could to up there from a body shop or paint shop. For wheels inside and out one color? Cheap paint gun from parts store and a weekend. That's about what I have....won a door prize with two guns and a sander.
    I just don't have a weekend yet to pull rims off and paint or backup rims...and paint. Yet.

    I know what you meant lol

    Do they have you on meds, though, because I had to read that twice

    I'm considering going down to a 16" for the winter though, so I'll probably buy another set. And if I buy 'used', we'll probably just spray-paint them...

    A couple of 'professional' pix taken on last weekend's fun run:

    this one's my favorite








    what's ma name?



    Other than that, update: The rubber around the front windshield wasn't changed when they did the roof paint job, I guess they were trying to save me some money or something (?) and so the rubber ended up fraying and cracking at both top corners. So back to the shop went the Shoop yesterday, to replace it, which meant removing the glass again, and the windshield broke. So, Shoopster's getting a new windshield - which is great because it was full of chips - and the bodyshop is covering the cost, yay. Should have it back later today.

    But wait it doesn't end there. The subcontracted window-guy scratched up the pillars to either side of the windshield and they (grrr) retouched it with the pen. Great job. So it's going back again next week to fix that too. Not sure how good a fix they'll do with the windshield on again....

    Thanks! meee tooooo
    Maybe a little more low; potholes here are craters, our roads look like they've been bombed. I could probably, safely, lower it about an inch, not more.
    "Shoopster" explained: What name did you give your subie?
    I like my headlights too, thanks. The rubber around them is messed up, partly missing. If I have to get new ones, I'd probably get halos again.

    Next jobs will be to fix my heater (apparently a long, grueling job under the dash) then we'll tackle the boost situation. BF's busy racing/tuning/repairing his model hydroplanes these days - which it turns out, just may be the fastest in Quebec right now, so he's off to the regionals & so the Shoop's flyin' stand-by...
