    I know the tint laws around here. 30% is the limit. And you can't tint the windshield except for a strip at the top.
    I smacked a deer with dad's Impala once...did a number on the driver door and quarter panel. Door was jammed shut.
    My rims need refinished. The clear finish over the aluminum is peeling. I'm gonna either use these for winter and get Bullitts for summer, or just refinish these.
    My road needs paved as well. I doubt it will ever get done...

    I'd get a 2nd look at your tint law. We used to think that it was ok on the front 2 doors as long as it was so light, but that isn't it. Plus ours is 35%, but that applies to any tint period...

    Anyway. They have been doing 3 miles of road at a pace of 1 per year. They finally did my stretch this year....took them FOREVER. It was the county doing it with only about 4 guys. Michigan is among the nation's fastest growing economies, with some of the worst roads. I'm thinking that the state finally has the $$ to do these roads they have been neglecting for years. My reasoning is that there is SO MUCH MORE construction than normal. In Michigan, that is saying a lot...Michigan is the "home of eternal road construction"

    Yeah, I doubt our county can afford to do it. We like in the middle of nowhere so I'm sure they aren't worried about it. We are one of the last roads to get plowed too...

    Oh. I see. I have the luxury of being on a main highway, although still in the middle of nowhere. My town has about 2,000..mostly gravel roads around here. But ya. Snyder has the Michigan government rolling.

    I had edited that and all my editing has gone away. It was just rambling about Snyder. His campaign was that he was a nerd. 1st ad was during the Super Bowl...so I instantly liked him. He is the former CEO of Gateway computers. He runs the state like a business, which makes sense in terms of $$. He spent 2 years breaking down the state, now he is building it back up.

    I looked at the debt clock. The US debt keeps rising. Whenever they say something like "will reduce the deficit by..." They really mean at the end of the specified time, the debt will be ... Less than it would have been. Aka, they aren't reducing the debt, just the rate of increase. But, when I looked at Michigan, our debt is going down...as in literally. (Same with a lot of other states as well)

    Why not? Lol. But the roads suck still lol. Just don't move up north in the snow-belt. They get pounded with lake-effect snow. But ya, come on up! Lol

    We get lake effect here too sometimes. I live near South Bend. Any much farther north and I would be in Michigan.

    Ya...pretty much everyone in the path of weather by a lake gets lake-effect snow. But in the snow belt (just a few miles north of me is where it begins) they get pounded every time. We'll get 1-2" and they'll get 8-10"

    Lol this has gotten a little off-topic, no?

    Here are my uploaded pics with my wheels cleaned up. Last pics of the car definitely needed a wash! Let me know what you think.

    I don't love these Bullet wheels. As someone else pointed out, the chrome/metal rim looks good, but I'd prefer if it was all black. If you want the complete blackout look, definitely get all black rims. These rims are the Matte Black Bullets which people have criticized but I think they are great. Little cleaning involved- they always look great!

    I also tinted my third brake light. Last pic I uploaded just looked silly with the third brake light not tinted.

    Also notice my new GT Hood w/ scoop ;)

    Not off topic at all lol. Tires aren't as bad as I thought. All black would be ok, but I like the look of about 95% black, and some silver/chrome accents. Looks nice. Tint the windows and you'd be golden...just not the front ones. As you may have already read, I got busted for that. (I didn't put the tint on)

    Also, can you get another pic of the front? I wanna get a better look-see at those headlights lol

    Yeah we got off track...from cars to roads.
    Anywho...I like those rims on your car. Just tint those windows and it'll look great. I'm with RedWings...lets see a pic of the front!
    I am adding a GT style scoop to my hood eventually as well. Looks great!

    Thanks for the compliments. I will post a pic of the front soon. The headlights actually work great now- I never aimed them lol. Now that they are aimed, the visibility has greatly increased and they look great.

    In all seriousness, I recently lost my job and am in serious financial troubles. I'm going to be posting several items including the headlights since I'm in need of fast cash.

    As I had mentioned, the tail light trim I received for free after a rebate incentive on eBay. If anyone is interested in free stuff, send me a PM.

    1. What kind of free stuff?
    2. Ya that makes sense about the light. It didn't look as dark as I was meaning and looks like you should be able to see fine.
    3. My car is a 98, so I probably can't help with buying stuff, but RLC can probably help. He needs stuff lol

    I know the hood needs paint badly, but I wanted the non 03 V6 hood. I think this hood looks more aggressive
