😄 I was taking a jab at those that have to do so. I've never put a car up for the winter. I grew up in western CO. One had to learn how to drive in snow or stay home.

In order to get my lowered GT a 4 wheel alignment it required caster/camber plates. I ordered them from American Muscle. I always check to see where my order would be shipping out of. When they tell me it is Lenexa, KS, I place my order with standard shipping. You see Lenexa is only about 3 miles away from my house, when AmMuscle ships, I get them the next day. So, I ordered a set of Maximum Motorsports Caster/Camber plates (also got my 2% veteran discount) and they got installed yesterday. I have an appointment for the alignment on Monday AM.

The advantage of working from home - spending few mins each lunch allowed me to flat back, build layers, flat back and polish up :

Not perfect, but good enough not to get noticed anymore :

It's good, but I can still find it if I want to ... lol

It was just a generic black touch up pen from our local auto store Halfords (similar to your AutoZone / Pep Boys in the USA).

I would think any generic (non metallic) black is good enough for chips in the wheels. At the end of the day it's paint going onto powder so there is a difference in the materials anyway.

Out of interest, Meguiars Scratch X used by hand on a MF takes scratches and (well worn) 1500's sanding marks out of the PP1 wheels very easily and quickly :like:

Best dash cam, have it in 2 vehicles currently, works fantastic!
Wish they bumped up the rear res to 1080 over 720. The front 4K is a must tho.
I have been looking for dash cams on and off for a while now. It seems that almost all of them seem to have good ratings. You begin reading and a bunch of people say how horrible customer service is or they are unreliable or break after a few months. Not to mention there are hundreds of choices! The one you mentioned looks good and fits what I need. How long have you had it for?

For the Bullitt I got it about a month after the car (so since March 2020, 18 months) and for wife's F150 it's been in for about 3-4 months. First I got off Amazon, second directly from reseller with great customer service.

If you want, DM me, I can try to get in touch with the guy at the company I got it from, maybe I can see if he throws in a freebie or something (but no promises). It's Viofo A120 Pro Duo (so front 4K and HD rear). I'd recommend hard-wire kit (so it starts up when you start the car) and a CPL filter (reduces glare and improves picture quality).

I live in OH, so it's not like FL/TX heat tested, but we got a few upper 90s in the summer, which means in the car is around 120-140 (I'm guessing) and no issues still.

I've bought Rexing. Never had an issue in the 100+ TX heat. Customer service is by email now due to Covid. The one I purchased for this Mustang had a bad jack port for the rear camera in the main head. Emailed them a picture. Same day they sent me a ppd return label. As soon as they got the shipping notification from UPS, they shipped out a whole new kit including a new rear camera. Plus, it's the newer upgrade. Can't ask for better. Their fall sale is on I noticed. https://www.rexingusa.com//

Took delivery last night. Truck came sooner than expected. Pardon the shit photo, I got busy today and didn't have time to get her out into the sun. So happy to be back in a coyote car!

Found the fuel cut off in second gear on my way home through Mexico. Really put an ! on a not so great week. Was as safe as doing dumb speeds where no other cars were around as it could be I guess.
