what happened?

i hit a tree with mine in the front, i fixed it myself but it took some patients and a heat gun. that junk they make the bumpers out of will work back but it takes a while and helps if the whole thing is in the sun for a while

Neglected it..a lot lately. Been busy with work and just haven't had the interest in doing much with it anymore, other than washing it once a week or so.

I did attempt to fix my headlights the other night, and in the process, I managed to break the wires to one of my halos, so they're gone.

This was before losing the halos

well, the other day i built an extension to my seat on the scoot for when the gf decides to ride with me to the store up the street or what have you. i used the existing 3 bolt holes in the frame for the luggage rack to mount it, and some chrome pipe for spacers. for my very first upholstery project, i think i did a damned good job. now my regular seat looks like crap in comparison. maybe ill do that next. i have plenty of left over foam, and not knowing anything about upholstery i accidentally bought a full yard of the vinyl.

car is pulling right cant figure out why. its been doing this for months, but now that ive bought new tires, i want to get it fixed. in the past year ive replaced the tie rod ends, struts wheel bearings brakes control arms and the sway bar bushings along with having it aligned twice. i think its time to let the dealer look at it. im frustrated. it actually seems to pull right more at slower speeds than faster ones.

sticky caliper can do that to ya. see if that rotor has any visible discoloration or just wheel chock the rear wheels and jack up the front , put it in neutral and try to spin that wheel and see if it goes freely or not

tried that already.... that was my first thought. i had a 96 neon that had this issue, and after replacing the master cylinder and calipers i replaced the $10 rubber hoses and it stopped. learned my lesson on that. lol. its almost like that one wheel is wayyy out. but the alignment sheet says otherwise. im starting to think my axle might be gone. i know the differential is good.

If it is a problem related to the brakes hanging up on one wheel it will heat the wheel up if you drive any distance. Feel each front wheel after driving a decent distance to see if one is noticably hotter than the other.
