Snow Day!!!!!!!

So yeah I got the car out this weekend to do the suspension on it and due to some parts not being in the kit I didnt get to put it on the car. I guess I should have put the cover back on it b/c this is what I woke up up this morning.

Stupid snow, and stupid winter and stupid roads

Yay! I'm officially pissed off at God, Al Gore and his global warming and also at winter.

Today was warm enough for snow to melt. I was expecting only good stuff from today and on...but no. hell no. the roads were covered with snow mush and all that melted crap that you get. Well, it collected overtime and froze overnight. In fact, there is so much of it that its rubbing against the wheel. Removing it is impossible unless I go and wash the car. But washing my car in 0F temp will mess me up even more.

So anyway, was driving on these crappy Iowan roads, hit few bumps on the road and I hear a crack...few cracks actually, somewhere on my right front wheel. I guess the cold froze up the bumps on the road and they doubled the size now. I get out to check wtf just happened and I find out that my protective plastic got broken from the impact. Come to think of it, I was lucky. I could have ripped the whole front right fender off. The ice was still there which meant I had to go in and force it out. And boy, did I force it. Basically the whole shit fell off when I hit it couple of times. It looked like a big turd in the middle of the road.

So now, I think my screws are ripped and that's the reason my plastic is dangling. I can definitely move it with ease.

My point with this whole thread is to make sure you take that crap off, scrape it, eat it, lick it...I don't care what you do with it, but make sure its out. If you don't, you'll end up like me.
