Jerry what did you use to paint them? Did you use any adhesian promotor or sand them at all? I would like to paint mine today since I have some time off but am not sure of the best way to do it.

I washed it real good, scuffed it a little then sprayed 2 coats of adhesion promoter, then the orange, taped it off sprayed the white and then 3 coats of clear. The prep is important, and I only scuffed it with scotch bright during washing, if you use sand paper it takes the texture off real quick.

Well I just finished all my painting. I set the fuse box on the ground and when I went to show the engine cover to Stephanie I tripped and stepped on the fuse box so now I have to strip it and repaint it when I get the chance. They arent the best paint job but it'll do. See yall tomorrow.

Its a bit chilly and windy over here so come prepared. Engines will be happy, tires not so much. At least till it warms up later.

Well that was an interesting 3runs. Completed on the first one and DNF the second and third. That last little box is kind of hard.

Yes its close and comes up fast. There is always tomorrow. Hope everyone makes it out. Should be warmer.
Awesome to see Neomi running her LaCrosse. Little bit of body roll but still fun to watch. I love AutoX weekends.

Uh yeah it did. Here's a pic of mine after today. Sad thing is Neomi's look like this too. How 'bout your Jody? Wondering if its the tires. I only have about 1000 miles on them. Granted they are 90% AutoX. I'll be posting a thread on the racing forum to see what they say tomorrow. Gotta gather all my data so they can make a diagnosis. Pics not so great. I'll get more tomorrow. Hard to see but there is a raised lip after the tread then its cupped out. looks like I have paddle tires but only on the first one inch or so.
