A little off topic but to the point.....

I took my Corvette engine apart and had it powder coated silver. The Plenim (top long 2 piece), runners (tubes on both sides from Plenim to manifold) and both valve covers done for $200.00. So check around if there's more than one place that does that kind of work in your area.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Looks like perfectly normal wheels on a car driven in the winter up here in the Northeast. It's just salt corrosion getting under the plastic coating.

The rust on that wheel well looks like surface rust - easily fixed.

Look at the rust on my RATMOBILE wheel well. (Not to mention that both rocker panels are completely gone.) I just broke off the big chunks and scraped them down. I'll just have to keep them "clean" with a blast of the hose whenever I can. It's a Winter Rat.....


The front passenger side is a lot worse. Pretty normal for up here.
