Click Above for damage

Take a gander at mother nature'* eyelids.
Ran into 4 curbs all while making left hand turns. Roads were extremely ICY. Can you guess how much surface area is left on the lip of the wheel?
I would have to say close to 10% left. The tires still holding same psi as when I left on trip. That kinda luck. Bro has same stockers from the sears change over. Throwing those on this week.

Dang!! Okay, thats it- ONLY right hand turns from now on!!!

I'm glad I escaped the winter mix without hurting my car. Although it snowed quite a bit in Ohio it didn't last too long.

Nah car has arrangements for my younger sister this spring. Perfect timing because I'm working on my latest project. You guessed it */N will be BONNY2JEEP. LOL Need just a Lower Control Arm. Damn right pissed me off. Never touched the brake when turning and was turning at a rate of 15MPH. On yeah Alignment is HORRIBLE. Wheel is cocked the center section turn your steering wheel 1/4 turn to the left and thats where it is to go straight. Cars in beautiful condition except for parking at Lowes and taking out my drivers clear corner. Had to make a new set. Noticed the truck next to me has a rub on its plastic bumper that lined up to where the corner is located. Took the key and passed the paint.It'* in the bible "Every man shall carry a key."
