looks a million times better now good job



I went to muskegon to look for desks for my room.. Put 40$ in my car and that put me at just over 3/4 tank, forgot to reset the odometer because i wanted to check the mileage.. but anyway at the end of the whole trip I am just under half tank.. during said trip the black plastic underneath my bumper decided to fall down and drag under the car, so i ripped that off in a parking lot (the reason it fell off is a different story..) I ended up getting a desk off a craigslist ad since all the ones at the stores are 400$ i picked this up for 125$.. Im upset that my car is getting such bad mileage.. i have been smelling gas here and there after i stop and park and its concerning me... the engine also sounds a little louder than normal.. my babys gettin old :(

Probably the last sunday of good weather here in New York, so I washed my car. And sprayed tire foam on my wheels, everything is nice and shiny now.

I picked up Tire Wet Foam. I wasn't expecting much, but wow! 10 minutes after spraying the tires look really nice. I wonder how long that gloss will hold up?
