True. I could have spray painted them like you did your calipers, but we see how that turned out.

No I'm not insulting you so take a step back before you decide to attack my work like you always do. I'm saying you could have gotten them cheaper I can get a full set of cleared heads and turns for 120 free shipping. Just trying to help you not get overcharged but I guess I won't next time big spender.

Are we talking about those head lights still? For 114 ea I think that'* cheap. The headlights for the VW were more than that.

I still need to do my snow tires, but I still think I have some time before the major snow rolls around.

Balanced the tires on the truck today finally. I figured they needed to be done considering 3 of the 4 had no outside weights. None were more than 1oz off though. Not bad for 33'*.

i changed the oil in my bosses chevy express 5.3 (with a smaller filter than my 3.8, go figure) changed 18 gallons of hydraulic fluid from his tractor, along with 2 filters for the hydro fluid, the oil in that and mounted flood lights under the back of his f350. short day at work. lol
