Default New rimz, engine bay cleanup

I noticed that one of my BBS tires had a crack going verticle and probably the result of old *** tires. I looked over at my 90 and decided, "hey those things got lots of tread left." Pulled off my BBS's and put on some 15's

Thats clean? Looks like everything is still dirty, and the valve cover needs some paint. Wheels look good though.

Lookin good, i wish my car was black. My engine bay is dirty too, i never feel like cleaning it.

Ya, I think you should do krylon wrinkle black on the valve cover.

Edit: and now that this thing is drivable again you should come out to an autox.

Looks good.



Which is fortunate.







Considering that I usually get a bit stabby when people spell "rims" as "rimz".
