No that's appreciated info...cause I def had no clue. But I will try it out with a vinyl on there and a high temp clear. If it gives me problems it'll be nothing to strip it down and paint it again. I'm thinking the blanket will make it a non issue...well hoping rather lol!

He said his turbo is wrapped though. So maybe you think you know more than you do.
This is why I try to read as much as I can.

Riot Act, I love your cover.

So I finally picked up a set of winter wheels last night after searching for prob a month! Found these 16x7 ASA EM9 wheels on CL for only $150! None of which are curbed either! Got some minor touch ups to do with a silver sharpie but that's about it.

I do need to fabricate some new center caps though as only 1 wheel came with one. So I stopped at the junk yard today and picked up these x4 Nissan caps for $10 rather than getting raped on ordering ASA caps offline for $20+ a piece. They have the same ID/OD which was surprising to find...thanks Nissan! Now they'll get filled, sanded, primed, painted silver, and a red ASA vinyl dropped on them.

The collars for each wheel were also pretty corroded so those are already in the process of being sanded, primed, and painted matte black.

That's what I'm sayin! Usually everything is curbed up and overpriced.

Now I just gotta find some used snow tires...

I've never really been sure/comfortable with buying used tires. But I guess in your line of work you know good tires FOL

Somebody forgot to take their meds and is gonna have a ocd flare up...lol. Seriously brandon, I bet when you roll them out of the batcave they will look like new wheels and not used. Glad you found what you were after. I have that same exact air compressor btw.

Keith, its time to take your meds as well.

Yeah they'll def be looking new by this weekend. Anything with blemishes is unacceptable for me! Lol...

And used tires are ok if you know what you're looking for. I'm working on a set of snows right now for $150 but he wants $300. I bet I get em
