That's one of the things I hate about living in Ohio. Snow tires for half the year.

I've somehow justified it by telling myself that I don't have to go to the tire store as often.

For a vomit comet, it isn't bad. It has a TON of swirl that goes away with a quick Turtle Wax, but it really needs correction...and a new driver's fender.

Except it only works that way if you're willing to drive around on age-cracked hockey pucks for 5 years. Damn things will rot before they wear out. I should get some 100-treadwear autocross tires, they'd still be good for 4 years.

My snow tires still look good, 4 years later.

The Marauder's rear tires are...not as good.

I've decided that the cop buckets are just NOT going to suffice long-term. The hunt is on for affordable 50/50 civvy seats.

FYI, Pull-A-Part has a bunch of MGMs and a couple of late Vics in stock. You might get lucky.

I've apparently forgotten to keep this thread updated.

No major changes to the car, aside from new tinted head/corner lamp housings.





I have a front/rear LX Sport interior (seats, anyway) that could go in this thing, but I really still want a bench.

I also have an LX Sport grille that I'm working on painting. It came to me in silver, and I've been trying to get the gloss black to lay down nicely.




I'm sort of toeing the line between caring about this car and not caring about it. Sure, a bench seat and LX Sport grille will look nice in this thing if I get around to install them, but I also miss the 'IDGAF' nature of my old '04 CVLX which got less than basic maintenance. Feeling guilty about driving this car in the snow is sort of...annoying.

Looks great with those dark lights. The grill might look good in matte black also...

Thanks!

Regarding the grille, Idunno, I really think the gloss has to match to give it a more sleek look.

Thanks! I like it, too...and I'll like it more once I dial the interior in. I've got no plans to sell it unless someone wants to offer me stupid money, at which point I'd gladly let it go. Then, I'd be on the hunt for something like this car I posted in the CL/Ebay thread (though NOT in that color).
