      So I got my wheels back today-- good to go on that point!

      BUT-- picked up the 20th lips from paint and something went wrong with the color match and it came out more t-red than matchstick red.. so I have to drop them back off tomorrow and pick them up Wednesday.

      Leaving Thursday morning, but I have two more days of school so time is limited.

      I have the worst luck

      I didn't end up getting it filled. i didnt get to properly communicate to the shop how i wanted it done before i had to go back to school. being back and forth between states is not easy. but it looks great on the car regardless. they both look awesome-- just not the right color.

      If we cross paths please disregard if I come off as a dck. I'll be with my fiance and she easily gets upset if I associate with the other sex. It will just be a show so I don't end up in a sht storm.

      I will make friends with her too! My boyfriend and I will be happily glued at the hip so she shouldn't be too worried.

      Does she like cars at all?

      && we will cross paths I need to meet you-- seriously ive been to your house and never met you lol.

      She will need a friend. She's bummed that she won't know anyone (I guess I'm not good enough). She's as much into cars as any regular guy. She's certainly no enthusiast.

      Haha nope. She thinks I'm constantly texting and I don't bother correcting her because she will just ridicule me.

      wheels and tires are loaded up in my B6 ready to be mounted in the morning. Talked to the paint guy today, he got the lips resprayed and we can pick them up anytime tomorrow. Things are looking good. I just have to throw on the wheels and lips when i get off tomorrow. Shes in charge of getting the tires mounted and picking up the stuff from paint.

      I saw some guy with a beautiful rig filming your car. Keep an eye out. I believe it was AWOL.
