      I have too much to do still.

      Fix 1 wheel (slightly bent on the outer lip )
      Replace front tires
      Alignment
      Oil change
      Repair leaky air fittings
      Redo the false floor.
      Rework the exhaust so it no longer looks ghetto.
      Install some parts.
      Replace Accessory belt
      Replace Timing belt and waterpump.
      And then do a full detail.

      All before the 24th.

      If only your RSIIs didn't have those tiny ass tires on them, I would tell you to bring em up so I can buy em.

      I FINALLY touched up the front edges of my side skirts. The white plastic was exposed through the black paint and drove me bonkers. I have plenty of **** to get done and very little time before the show. My list is nowhere near as long as Swink's though

      Nothing wrong with small tires. I like to think of them in the same way as women's underwear: Less is more.

      Except that smaller tires are harder to pull off, and don't always look right. My friend has 215/35/18s on his wheels and he is on air, but they still look terrible. If you remove them I may be willing to buy, but I just found a local set of something I may pickup they are pretty beat up though and will need work over winter.

      I may have them sold locally, however if it falls through I'll keep you in mind for them without tires.

      Anybody want this stupid aftermarket grille? I can bring it to the show. It's yours if you buy me a beer. Lemme know otherwise I probably won't bring it.

      Also got yellow bulbs from ECS for $-line fogs like a chump. You can take em for $20 so I don't have to ship them back? Anyone? Bueller?

      What's up with that grill? Bad fitment? I might take it off your hands

      The surround trim piece dealy and the grille itself and the plate filler are all one piece. fit and finish are decent. If you look at it closely you can tell it's bogus but more than a few feet away you can't really notice.
