Awesome, this thread is taking off...love it. We have a similar thread in the road bike forum I belong to, and its a fun way to see what everyone is up to and projects they've got up their sleeve.

Was going to wrap but decided to paint instead. My buddy paints cars so I'm going to have him do them in gunmetal or silver next time he has his booth fired up.

We just bought a house so there might be a slight delay on this one

Great idea BTW, put in Euro tray, and put this cup holder on the side.

It can be anything from Air freshener to Wheels to Forced Induction...whatever, let us know.

My recent purchase, though nothing really exciting, was new fluids for my fair lady.

Photobucket

Whatchu get?

New front control arm bushings. Car drives like new again.
