Default Photoshop an Aerostar, please

My dad'* van had a flat tire, and the bearings on the other side ate through themselves even with the synthetic grease after about 9000 miles. The caliper broke, and the brake pads bent. The rotors had some incredible scratches and such, so I just replaced all those $30+/piece quality parts with Valucraft. Let'* see how that holds out. Anyway, the PS work I would really like to see is inspired in part by the "quality" of this vehicle and my friend'* idea for the following:

I want this thing put on a drag strip beating a muscle car off the line with flames out the exhaust and etched flames on the side. Since the hood is open, take out the flap and put in some Ford 427 or something with a giant intake sticking out. A larger exhaust pipe would be pretty cool. I think this is an awesome angle because it allows for some really funny work. PM me because I have the original 16001200 image. Thanks a lot!

You Are Worse Than I Am With My 94 Non Turbo Bonny. Seriously, Good Luck! But You Should Ask Yourself 'Why This Specific Car'? That Kinda Devotion May Be Better Pandered On A Different Vehicle. For Me Its Not Only Luv Its That I Owe Too Much On Her To Change Cars. I Look Forward To A Pic Of Your 165 Mph Aerostar Though! Kris

It'* my dad'* van, and there'* a lot of room inside to carry stuff. Plus, it'* paid off. Fixing it is a terrible investment, but its only repair right now is the brakes.

If You Are Walking The Fence Might I Suggest Erring On The Side Of Top Performance Parts? Get The Best Pads You Can, Oem Or Better Calipers As Well As Best Hubs And Bearrings. Brake System Flush Etc. You Cant Go Wrong With HQ

The problem is that I had put on the $30/wheel brake pads, $30/wheel rotors, all new piston grease (Mobil 1 synthetic), all new bearings with Lubritech synthetic grease, and various other things. The problem is simply that they got beaten up. I was riding in the van when it happened. We were sitting at a stoplight getting ready to race a bike...

Just kidding. We were sitting at a stoplight going to take a left turn, and there was an immense crunching sound. At the same time that the crunching was heard from the front-left, the front-right tire blew out. I haven't yet taken off the wheel from the blow-out, but the crunching wheel has been removed, and it looks horrible. The seals are broken, and there are bits of crunchy metal that seem to have been the bearings. The caliper'* piston was chipped, and the inner brake pad had fallen out of the proper position.

I'm letting the entire hub assembly sit in PB Blaster because the rotor has welded itself on there. Hopefully I will be able to take the thing off without Fording much.

Bump. Anyone want to make that thing go nuts? I'm at college now and will attempt to PS it here.
