start with the trail rated badge on the driver's side. mask it off, spray a dust coat and come back 15 minutes later and spray it again....do it like 3 or 4 times...dont worry about the roughness/blotchy look...itlll flatten itself out. its simple. i youtubed a couple different vids and tried it out on a random peice of junk steel we had in the shop...its foolproof.
if you get any on the tires, itll rub off. the more you put on, the easier it will be to take off where you dont want it to go. i masked a square off around the jeep logo and just whipped it with plastidip. i used a toothpick around the emblem to break the bond and it just peeled off like the sticky glue thats on the back of gift cards and what not.
theres a guy who either lives near me or (more likely) owns the guardian storage across from Whole Foods who drives an Audi R8. What a cool looking car.
I rented a Chevy Spark over the weekend and I really really liked it. The back seat and trunk aren't really any smaller than my car is now. I'm seriously thinking of selling my Pontiac and buying a new Spark.
And since the president said he is going to start ordering new emissions standards without my flat earth society meeting on the issue I suppose I'd already be on board with that.
There's something that popped up on Living Social that involved doing a test drive of a lambo (yes, I'm intentionally shortening the spelling since I can never spell it right), Ferrari, Porsche Turbo, or an R8. I think the other part of the deal lets you take your car on the track for a few laps.
If I didn't need to buy new tires on my car, I'd test drive that R8 in a second. I'd say it's probably #2 on my list of cars that I'd buy if I had the chance.

Guy spotted a gap and zipped out into the next lane, fishtailiing along, leaving tire marks for 30 feet, screaming revs. Sounded like a mean fighter jet. I pooped a little. It was awesome.
Not a Lambo guy at all, but the Aventador is fer realz. It's the frickin' Batmobile.
Needed new tires on the Buick. I decided to get wheels and tires, and just use my OEM wheels (which are getting a little rough) for my studded snows. I was tempted to go with some 20's, but settled for going up one size to 18's. Great service from TireRack - ordered them Monday am and they were delivered Weds am mounted and ready to put on.
As an aside, how many miles do you guys normally get on your road tires (since the majority of you have Jeeps)? Just got mine changed for the 1st time at 27,000 miles. Curious to see how that compares.
