Plastidipped the wheels...I was getting sick of chips and a few friends that did this haven't had the same issues.

Also decided it may be time to move along to a new project

^ When you take off the plastidip it will be a pain in the ass. I'm in the process of removing it from my window trim so I can paint it. It sucks man.

Yeah, I have heard that its not very fun, but I'm hoping it holds up better than the paint that came on them. I've tried touching them up here and there, but the colors a bit off and its looks horrible.

GL with the trim, I vinyled mine and I'm glad I don't have to mess with it again!

How hard was it to do the tensioner?

Went to the dealer today and picked up a new clip for the rear window regulator along with the nut and bolt needed. I also got that cig lighter cap. I LOVE IT. Makes the dash look so clean. Next I have to paint or something the center tray because it's beat up. Also met up with Delmarco again and he used the Mr. Clean Eraser on my steering wheel, love the new look.

And I also got down to 53 miles on my tank (where it died on me at 63 miles last year). Chevron Techron DOES work and it has allowed me to go lower a few times. This fill up I put in another bottle of it (last time was last year)

Nice! You need new interior parts. Looks like it was attacked by a pack of wolves!

Orange was chosen so that the eyes didn't have to adjust from dark to light. Driver safety.

It does look very cool tho!
