Post Allready had to drop off my PT at the shop

Allready had to drop off my PT at the shop....

Nothing wrong with it though, merely a check-up, I always let my mechanic do that when I buy a new used car.

So far he maintained a Dodge Ram Van, Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera 3.3 V6 SL and 4th gen 1998 Chevrolet Camaro 3.8 V6 for me and does a good job.


In this case also letting him exchange the rims w. winter tires which are still mounted.

Can't do it myself as my left shoulder is acting up.

Soooooooo, a couple of pics next week w. the factory chrome wheels mounted next week.

Guess these will look better compared to the after market ones as shown in my sig pic...

Oh and while he's at it he will have the empty climate control checked and if it doesn't leak filled again.

Will pick the PTC up tomorrow, climate control was leaking and one spot underneath the car had a tiny hole which was repaired, no biggy.

Drives in a straight line and without vibrations with them summer tyres and factory rims: I am happy.

Could not make a nice picture, could not locate a nice parking spot, living urban sux.

Pics to follow. What's a topic without eye-candy

Urban sux? Treat it like a cafe racer or stand-up comic. Any brick wall will do.

No chance buddy, ample room to open the door.

Will try close to work, in the port of Amsterdam, still is room to breathe and find a cool spot for pics there

Do you have chrome overlays on the door appliques or are they painted to match the body color?

Either way, looks good, makes the door appliques blend in with the body

I just noticed, they are probably painted body color because your mirrors are also painted body color

Are you missing a chrome front bumper piece? One pic has one, the other pic doesn't. Or one pic was taken before you got them and the other after you put them on?

I really like those original 2002 Chrome PT rims. The difference in the 2002 rims is that they have the little duvets in the spokes that the 2001 rims didn't have. I believe those were made by American Racing just like the 1st Gen GT rims. That's a nice looking PT.

Having driven silver colored vans and trucks for 13 years, I am not really a fan of that color. BUT, yours does look very nice Brutuz. You obviously take very good care of yours.
