Hahaha, I've done it before, but with real paint! I used to semi professionally restore car rims. It's good money. I could do a set in a day and resell them for $100-300 profit. The only issue is I don't have space to do it anymore

Junkyard steel rims were gold. Buy a set for $40, sandblast the rust off, hit them with some primer and black enamel paint, and they'd sell the next day, $200 for the set.

Took it to the track today! I beat a Merc, a BMW, and a Cobalt SS. And some jeep SUV thing. And some old chev pickup truck with "SS" written on the side. Time slip wise.... Not so happy. Still got a lean code. But compared to stock software, my tune from Hackish dropped 0.5 seconds!

Ran 15.8 a few times, then my times got worse. Got out, felt my cold air intake--too hot to touch. Parked it, camped in the trunk, got a million compliments on how the car sounds. Fun night

Jealous that my friend got #69 for the day

Snapped my right end link and hit a curb. No other damage it seems. Funny part is I have new ones sitting on my back seat right now. Was going to change them today, but had to drive my dad around

Oh well. Guess I'll drive a cobalt tomorrow, fix the Eclipse after work. Could be worse

Replaced both front ones today. The old ones were seized on real good. Took oxy acetylene, a grinder, chisel, hammer, and some wrenches to get them off...

Was going to change out my suspension fully, but wouldn't ya know it, a johnson bar with a 6 foot cheater bar still wasn't enough to break the 25mm bolts loose on the struts. However it was enough to pick up the car

Don't buy Canadian cars.
