According to the weather nerds we're in for a "warmer than average" winter.

If temps average in the 30's I'll be happy. Single digits plus wind is where I start to get cranky.

Drive beaters and you don't have to worry about payments or high insurance.

I want a truck next. but I got some other stuff I'd like to take care of first.

I dont want to finance anything for more than 48 months anymore. 4 years is about the longest I'd like to pay on something.

Cant wait till our cars are paid off. More money for more beaters
If you saw what I do you wouldn't even peek at gm trucks. We got brand new ones under 1000 miles blowing up the engines across the nation. Some are doing it on the pdi test drive.
Here is some pics I took during last nights yeeyee ricer install.


Be gone ye garbage "wing"

Man she was dirty under there


Had to "coax" the mount location a lil using a hammer and extension.


Marking the holes, looking good.

First access hole to spoiler mounts. Looks almost factory I say

Screw clean access holes.

Damn socket got stuck during test fit to mark the other holes

Getting her measured up, Like my special gold sharpie?

Got her sealed up good

Mmmmm engine sealer smells so good.

Sealed up the old holes with engine sealer and hvac tape.

#savethe3rdlight

Intalled and angled up to max for full yeeyee
