awesome garage .... whats with the redneck wiring job?
I work overseas and didn't have time to get started on the wiring before leaving so just rigged that up for lights temporarily. I had to get everything inside the shop before leaving. Once I get back home, electrical, plumbing for the bathroom, etc will all continue.

Installed winter tires today. Went from factory 20s w all seasons to the PP1 19s with
Winter Sotto Seies 3s in 255/40/19 series 3. They feel like a touring/sport tire rather than a winter squishy tire even in today's 55° warmth. So looking forward to driving with them this winter. 🤞

Took the liberty in painting the calipers black and adding some "brembo" stickers. More like "Brem-brokes".

Before and after.

You will be VERY happy with the Sotozzero 3s, I think. That's what I'm running on my Bullitt and they're great.

Edit: Forgot to add that I had a full OH winter in them (not just couple of weeks), we haven't had snow yet this year, but very sure footed. I only used snow/wet mode I think on one day last year?

Touched up a rear fender of rock chips today with Dr Colorchip. Easily the best touch up kit around, don't bother with anything else. On a side note I need to get protective piece put back there. Anyone have a product they can recommend for the rock chip problem? Gotta look cool of course but I guess that goes without saying.
Keith, I recommend Rokblokz. (and I do like to send it...)

HOW MUCH HOW MUCH TELL US!

I got a warning about 3 months ago, first pull-over in about 7 years. He sent me off with "nice color." :D
80 in a 55. VA laws makes that a mandatory court appearance. :/

They most likely used a precut kit and didn't wrap the edges.

Actually, looks better than Xpel on parts of mine. The shop I took it to were nice guys and did great work, but now 1.5yrs later it seems the edges are peeling and catching some dirt and makes them visible.

Is that normal, or does that suggest they didn't wrap the panels properly?

Anything over 20 in VA is almost always reckless driving. I'd get a lawyer to reduce it. It's well worth the $$
Which county did they get you in?

That sucks...hopefully they let you plea it down to a lesser charge.
I hope so. I'll be honest with the judge and just say that I recently got the car back and was out enjoying the nice weather. I was passing a pickup when I crested the hill and saw him, then immediately pulled over.

Did you also get reckless driving along with that? I know some states it's added when above 20 mph over posted.
Yes. in VA anything 20 over the posted limit, or anything over 85. The trooper could have reduced it on the spot but was by the book the whole time. He did say that the judge in that county generally reduces reckless tickets down based on the conditions and driving record. And as I said before, its been nearly 12 years since I was last pulled over.

I mean. That's a lot 🤷‍♂️
Certainly wasn't a little. Completely my fault, and I'll accept the consequences.
