    Far as I know, Frog Tape only makes painter's tape, not trim tape.

    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 paint store. If you don't like the results, peel it off rather than press it down harder, and try again. If you can't do it pay the Pro, but I'd bet you can do this at home the same way he will.

    That is a great idea, unfortunately I'm having difficulty with my hands, especially doing fine detail work - so it will need to be farmed out.

    You know how much that bites because you see how involved I am with the different cars. Today I noticed that I have a pinhole in the trucks radiator - it kills me that I'll need to pay someone to do something as simple as a radiator replacement..... Just last week I made the decision to sell the fat tire bike since it hasn't been on the road in three years; I bought it right before I got sick....

    A not f-body project. Well, it's not really a project but an operation. The rear lower control arm bushings on my Mustang are broke loose from their shells and the arms are rubbing on the pivot boxes. A common problem with '08 Mustang's. It was like that all summer but kept getting worse. Creak, squeak, crunch. Last time I drove the car about 3 weeks ago, one of them started clunking everytime I hit the throttle or brakes. OK, time to take care of it before the pivot boxes get destroyed. Wanted to wait longer to switch the Mustang and Dakota around but it's just as well. A couple days later the weather turned and I would have done it anyways. Going to get Ford Performance arms which are like original only with a little stiffer bushings. They're only $139/pr with hardware included and bushings alone are half that, plus the screwing around pressing the old out and new in so,,,,,,,,,,,,I'll go the lazy route, lol.

    Should be an easy operation except knowing myself, I'll also have to clean, wax, detail, etc all the other stuff in the area while the tires are off.

    Now if only there was decent weather to try it out! Guess you'll have to settle for polishing up everything under there. LOL!

    It's not so much the weather but something else. Early this morning it rained or sleeted some so the roads were all soaked when I drove to work. My clean, black truck was white when I got there. Bleeping salt..........................A lot of the asphalt roads look like concrete they're so white with that vehicle destroying crap.
