Got the damaged wheel repaired, it was just a small chip in the powder coat. Had it put on the balancer as well just to make sure it wasn’t bent and it spun perfectly. If anyone in the central PA area needs any wheel repair, I highly recommend them, Wheel Worx in Mechanicsburg. Here’s the before and after:

Dear lord, this paint correction just keeps going on and on. I’ve seen so many videos where people knock this out in a weekend and I’m over here like “yeah, just did the hood this weekend” it is almost done though. The entire car is cut with compound, now it’s just polishing out the haze that cutting leaves behind.

I tell people all the time, I don’t think there is a more tedious job than paint correction, especially on a black car. But the reward, watching the paint come to life right in front of you...

Front end lighting upgrades. We all received Amazon gift cards for Christmas at the company I work for, I was going to purchase new TPMS sensors for the MRR’s but the reviews on there were all over the place, most stating that they weren’t even refurbished AC Delco’s but Chinese clones....not interested in dismounting those big ass Nitto’s and potentially scratching the wheels if they fail.

So instead I picked up the Muzzys DRL harness with LED bulbs (same manufacturer as my LED side markers) and GP Thunder chrome/amber bulbs for the turn signals. To be honest, I’m not sure if these are going to make the final cut on the car, they might get replaced by another brand but we’ll see how they look in the housing.

Everything for the wheels and tires. Picked up those black stick on wheel weights from my work, I think they’ll blend into the barrels seamlessly. On the flip side I wanted chrome lug nuts to break up the black on black, I picked up these McGard lug nuts off eBay brand new for $50.

The TPMS sensors are OEM AC Delco’s....but I’m 90% sure they’re remans, also off eBay for about $50 and of course the hub centric rings as well.

Ok, so whatever valve stems came with those sensors do not jive with the MRR wheels. Absolutely destroyed the one shown below, thank god I didn’t scratch the wheel trying to pull this through. So I went a different direction, these Dill multi piece valve stems aren’t designed for GM TPMS sensors but bolt up just fine and as you can see below, gives the whole setup a clean look.

I guess after 37 years of working on cars I’ve abruptly forgotten how to lift one without destroying rocker panels and bending fenders so I picked up a Quick Jack with the extension arms as a birthday gift to myself.

Promptly got to work, got the rear LED marker lights installed, ZL1 addons rear rock guards, fully cleaned and detailed the fender wells as well as test fitting one of the MRR’s. Unfortunately they and the car need a little more attention before they all go on for good.
