Re: Another Crown Vic......

Wanting to keep the tires/wheels I have as rollers to put on for winter storage (the Nokian's will likely flat-spot since they're so soft) so I had a buddy who manages a police fleet garage hook me up with 6 OEM steel wheels to mount the track tires on.

Unfortunately, 3 of the 6 are tweaked and not usable or won't balance in spec so I had to hit craigslist to look for some cheapie wheels - figured if I'm gonna throw money at the wheel issue, they should be lighter and allow good heat dissipation.

Found these for $230. A little blingy but they'll do the trick. Hoping to find 2 more, but they're no longer being made by the Mfg. so fingers crossed for another cheap used set.

I also found a pair of front door trim pieces on Ebay so those will need scuffed and painted and new adhesive tape applied, but that will help with the appearance. (can't remove the back door trim pieces, Ford put a 1" square hole in the door under those for some damn reason....)

Got the hood vent cut down so I'll need to paint that up as well and then cut the hood. Debating on if the vent should be gloss, or flat.

I gotta avoid going to any event with you Anthony..... I'll get power-adder envy and want to throw stupid money at this dadgum Ford.....lol. Oh and you'll be mean to me about the shittay paint job I over paid for...... or maybe it'll compel you to wanna help a brutha out and buff out the bad spots.....

I'm down as long as it can be on a Thurs or Fri. When does Pueblo do their track days?

In the meantime...... ya'all can drool over my "hell-kitty".
