Wouldn't it be nice if there were plastic sheets that could be applied to keep the brush from scratching the paint? Something you put on with water that sticks to the bodywork sort of like the plastic they use to protect new cars while they're being shipped

Depends on what they look like - body color, for example. Too late for mine, it's scraped up all down both sides.

OK so i painted one rim today (spare) to see what it would look like. Went for a two tone look. My roommate says it looks ghetto. I've attached two picks. Let me know what you guys think looks better.

5 MPG?? what fan did you install??

I spent today replacing my front parking cable.. Tomorrow is fuel filter and oil pressure sending unit. Then I need to make time for the heater core, ball joints, and eventually my steering gear box.

On the plus side, I'm saving on gas by not driving it..
