Try using a plastic razor blade. I've had pretty good results using them in the past to scrape things off of cars without causing paint damage.Unfortunately, 20 mins of rubbing with isopropyl alcohol wasn’t enough. I’ll try again with goo-gone, but if the area isn’t perfect afterward, I will be putting the “3” back on and not continuing with the de-badging.
I did notice that these new rims are 7" wide and the rims that are currently on my car are 7.5" wide. I assume I will still have acceptable clearance around the brake calipers? I think its the offset that really affects clearance. I'm still new to the wheel/tire game.
- Clear Coat – Not sure on brand. I definitely want a specially formulated product that will stand up to acidic brake dust deposit and UV rays.
This is what I wanted to hear!take out battery
put in battery
Believe it or not, when I first got the car I wasn't in love with the roof rails. I have since changed my opinion. I think they look great. It's funny, I'm just the right height to where they hide the sun damage on the roof. It's a nice added bonus!That's a good looking car. I'm jealous you guys over there seem to get the roof rails.
What you say makes sense. I have actually been looking at some videos on how to replace the wheel bearings if it came to that. Seems medium difficult but not impossible. Especially considering I have a second car at my disposal. I could take a week or so to work on a project like that.Glad to see things still progressing, the forever black looks to have done a pretty good job on your trim. The faded trim pieces always drive me nuts so its good to see something actually work for once.
I can't comment on the spacers as I've never had them but if I had to guess if the wheel bearings don't seem to be an issue now try giving them a shot. It may speed up the timeline of having to replace them but sometimes those are the things we deal with in order to get the look or performance we want, worst case you replace them. If the funds aren't there for that, hold off for a while.
