    Wow, Its been awhile since I updated. Haven't done too much and just havent had time but here is a small update (that also happens to be on my birthday).
    Well. That decal never happened...

    On August 7th, I attended a Cars and Coffee with 98Legwag and a few other SLi'ers. I did miss a spot cleaning my car...Opps. An my grille was looking super sad so it was off getting prepped.




    We had a whole section of Subarus




    Alright. Today is my 30th Birthday. Yay go me. Its also not too hot or too humid so I got stuff done.

    The Brakes were paint awhile ago but I never took pics.


    Chrome be GONE




    Finally redoing the grille and its in Plastidip for easy repair



    Also cleaned, vacuumed, and did the leather conditioner to my seats.

    I've been dealing with a small air leak in the one wheel for months.
    Got new tire and it got worse. Took it back to the shop, the rim is cracked.

    Got to order new wheels. Brand new, which is a first for me.
    Sparco Pro Corsa

    Man that sucks about the wheel. Any stand out moments of aggressive driving that may have contributed?

    Buuuutt

    Whuuuuuut! Sparcos gonna look awesome! Silver or black? Need some pics. I think they look very BBS inspired and are an excellent choice!

    PA roads are crap.... add construction most of the time on top of that...

    The old wheels are Rotas so that doesnt help.

    And to answer the color question, Silver but I might dip them to a darker color.

    So the flashing brake light install went ok but doesn't work well with incandescent bulbs. I installed an LED in there and I also grabbed LED reverse lights.
    Quite a bit brighter in the day.

    Fun fact: PA has a specific law that prevents the state from having to pay for damages to vehicles as the result of potholes. I believe that is the reason why they are not repaired in a timely manner, since there is no penalty to be incurred by the town or state if they just leave the holes there for a long time.

    I discovered this law when both of the XV wheels on the passenger side of my car were bent on a PA road.
