Well, it is a Buick, so you have to account for major body roll, so he probably isn't going all that fast

Well, today I had to go and get an appraisal on getting a new rear GXP bumper and tail light. Some girl backed into it this morning (one of those, throw in reverse and WOT without looking types)...so for the Bonnie (and me) it has not been a good day.

i am sore from working on the seats yesterday. all day project. i unbolted the seats, tilted em forward and propped em up like you would a hood, and went to work. 7 nuts hold on the *** part on both seats. and it was the 60/40 foam like i didnt want, but i cut it and sculped it to fit the switches and all and you'd never be able to tell i did anything other than the flat lopsided seat is on the passenger side now lol. if you look at these pics you can see how collapsed the driver side was. the driver side cut into the foam really deep too.

bought a red and black steering wheel cover at advanced auto, then washed the truck didnt go all out i wont do that until the weather isnt stupid it needs to be clay barred really bad, then i tried to do a photoshoot the pics didnt come out as nice as i wanted since the weather is stupid and for some reason sight seers would NOT stop getting in my way.. I had parked my truck in a really nice spot and some idiot in a toyota pulls up and parks right in front of me and just sits there so i wait for him to leave and he stayed and got out.. so not only did he block my way out but now hes walking around so i stayed sitting and he realised he was in my way so he parks as close as he can behind me at this point im ridiculously pissed because not only is he ruining my shot but theres a billion other places for him to park ad stare at an iced over lake so i floored it and shot rooster tails of mid and gravel all over the front of his car.

anyway im updating the "Ol Red" thread with new pics.

You're lucky I live so far away, or i'd park so close to you that you wouldn't be able to get to your door. Then I would go as far away as humanly possible
