I know what you mean! The cost of car projects is directly proportional to the amount of projects we find ourselves wanting to take on, and inversely proportional to the thickness of our wallets! And, did you say change your forum name? Who would you be if you were not BashedBarrique?
Thank you for the compliment! The official name of the color of my car is "Sparkling Graphite Metallic." Have not looked into changing out the wheels just yet, I may wait until the weather gets nicer and then I'll start shopping around. Great pick - I'd love to see how those look on yours if you decide to go with them.
