I got the number for a guy who does body work by me. I have alot of little dents all over my car, and I would love to get them popped out. If it doesnt cost to much I would defiently want both front and rear bumpers redone. Maybe even the whole car if its cheap enough. lol

Oh and I figured out im only getting 30 mpg with the 17's. :( Of course this was only my first tank, and since this past week was my spring break for me I didnt drive nearly as much. and when I did it was all city driving insted of the interstate like usual. So I will give it another week or 2, and if its still only 30 I will probably sell them. I have $1,030 in my wheels. $450 for the rims and $580 for the tires.

Your complaining about getting "only" 30 mpg's? lol

I'm excited when I get in the 27 mpg and even that takes some work sometimes.

Oh yeah, I want first dibs on the rims if you sell. You can keep the tire though, $580 is a bit steep for me.

I actually thought of you 02fordsvt because I remember you saying in your build thread how excited you were to get 27 again. lol Yeah I felt dumb complaining getting only 30, but I was getting 36 for awhile over summer.

The tires were alot more than that, but I got a discount on them because my dad works at Ford. I always went with cheapo tires but I decided to try better tires. These ones were warrantied for 70k miles. usually I just go to a shop and tell them to throw the cheapest tires they have on. lol

Yeah I probably wont Avie. I am going to a meet here in Louisville for FX in April, and I am hopefully picking up a header which will get me alittle more MPG. Plus I want to take out the back seat, carpet, and everything next year if I have a real job by then and live on my own.
