yeah I hear ya. I really want to get a v1 but no way I can afford it lol, this will do the job though, anything is better than nothing.
well since my shift knob was pretty nasty looking (The black leather started turning green around where I usually grip it), I was telling my dad that I'd probably buy a new one, he then suggests I just use some shoe cleaner on it to make it look brand new again. Couldn't believe how well it worked.
used this stuff I got from walmart a long time ago:
And ended up doing the shift knob and boot, and it looks practically new. Everything is black now no more green one some parts and everything looks great:
A8 17s for hundred bucks?? That is a good deal. Whats your idea on refinishing?
no idea what I'm going to do but they won't be black like I have now . I'll have to see what they look like first ik one has bad curb rash. My dad has a paint sprayer at my grandpas so I'm thinking I might pick up some stock looking paint or one of those silver wheel paint from autozone or something and go over it with the spray gun. Either way I'm stoked to get them.
It's raining out now, but I'll test fit them either later today or tomorrow if it stops raining. The tires are surprisingly a little good. I may be able to use them for a little while. one wheel has pretty bad curb rash though and it ruined the lip, won't be able to do much to fix it I don't think
thanks yeah I'm extremely happy with the price I paid for them. And yeah I'm probably going to try and source one sometime from the classifieds or ebay if they ever pop up. They sell them individually on ebay for 145 shipped but they're replica wheels and I don't know how the quality is
Around here they all "upgraded" to lifted pick-ups with cheesy wheels and a sticker bomb of energy drinks and fox racing. The highest mileage early 2000's truck they can buy, cheapest lift that makes it the tallest, clear or tinted tails, drop in HIDs, tinted windows, accent painted everything, stick on chrome, rebel flags (wtf?).
