Becuase you have to live near stupid people who are willing to just give stuff away because they are afraid to drive a fwd car in the snow.

A preview of what my wheels should look like this winter. Thanks to andrev001 for doing some photoshopping on this photo.

Stripped the trunk area yesterday. I obviously still haven't cleaned it out.

More work on the wheels.

First coat using cheap white paint to cover the black.



The final coating of white paint.



The finished product. The paint I used for the final color is an old can of Ford tractor touch up paint. I used it because it has a slightly creamy tint to it which adds a little depth to the wheels. I don't know how it will look in the snow but the only way to find out is to try.

A little preview/update of a couple projects.



The finished wheels. They will most likely not go on the car until the end of November/early December.

Front Fender Rust Repair

Ever since I bought the car, the passenger fender has looked like this (the Svt side skirt is removed so it didn't look so bad with it on).



Sanded down.



Taped up.



Undercoating.



Tape removed and left to dry.



Top part sanded down.



Taped up and painted.



Retaped for clear coat.



Tape removed.



Sanded, polished, and trim put back on. Ready of another winter.
