    California. Nuff said.

    I like fall days with high winds. I get out there and flip the leaves up with the rake and let the wind take them as far as they'll go. So much easier than trying to rake...

    If you jack the wheel up and make yourself an arm rest to stay steady on, you just need another person to slowly turn the wheel as you apply a 1/8" pinstripe from a 20 ft roll cheap down at the auto...

    You're not taking it Muddin. It does add a nice accent to the wheels too. I'd think about some E6000 adhesive that won't scar your wheels and remains flexible enough to be on your beads.

    There was a bunch of chatter about sending him a good console lid a couple years ago. I have a few nice flat ones. But they are all lumpy on top too despite being "flat".

    I've seen those. But not often. Sort of a modern version of the old pinstripe around the bead lip. It probably would help break up all the black. But now that I know it's a simple add on I want some...
