Thought I'd bring some life to this section since it's been quiet for over a month.

I've got some stuff in the works right now for the car, but I'm going to keep it under wraps until everything is in my garage.

A little mystery for your afternoon......or maybe no one cares.

Will update in a bit.

Sure, just leave us hanging for another couple of months, like you always do.

Shot the lip of the rims with red. Maybe not everyone's cup of tea, but I'm going to try it out on the car and see if I like it.

Nope that's my summer setup. New struts, springs, rims, tires and mudflaps.

Plasti-dipped the chrome trim pieces on my front grill. It was my first time working with the stuff and some parts of the edges started to peel, but it's not noticeable unless you get up close. I might peel it off and give it another go.
