Ok! So, yesterday around 5 i went to meet Mike from bB Squad to pick up some spacers from him. (Also, i forgot my cam, so no real pics...haha) Anyway, my 1 1/2" or 38mm spacers.
Ok so this is where the fun starts, and i have no pics. haha. So i went to the mall and chilled till Ryan got home, then i went to his place to install the spacers. So we do one side, its bad. Its sitting on the tire, looks perfectly flush...for someone on air. haha. so i stuck the metal bar from the jack in there and pulled it a little, and pulled it with my hands as well. Then i took a lap around his neighborhood and it was rubbing REALLY bad, so i pulled it even more, made the dent worse. But the rubbing stopped. So we did the other side, and it just needed a little pull with my hands. haha. Ok, so I figured I'm all good. So we start drivin to the meet, and im rubbing the whole way there, but i dont care the music is up i dont hear it. haha i can smell it tho...It was bad. By the time i got to the meet, which was a 10 min drive, my door was covered in rubber, my tire was close to exploding, the paint was bubbling from the heat, like a bubble bigger then a quarter. haha. The smell was horrible, and wow it was just baaaaaad. haha So anyway i wasnt about to leave it and drive home like that because i knew i couldnt make it. So i started pullin on it with my hands, then Adam came over with his tool bag and i started messin with things.
Casey took these pics when we just started. Thanks dood.
So then i got tired and agravated and walked away, Todd and some people asked if they could help, and before i knew it there was a crowd around my car and Todd was goin to town with some vice grips. haha. So i came back to fender rapeage...But whatever it made enough clearence to get home.
Ok it gets worse from there. HA! Im drivin home. The drivers side still rubs, but just bearly. Thanks Todd. haha. But the passenger side is BAD! So im in the canyon like half way home, and i decide to pull over. While im lookin fer a somewhat level place to go off the road i hit a chunk of asphult and bust my lip, again. Lmao. So i pull over and pull the shit outta my fender on the side of the road, which almost makes my side skirt fall off. So at that point i wasnt happy with my decisions or the car. but whatever.
So when i got off work today I decided to see what i could do to make em better, because i have 2 plans with em. Either get new ones. Or make custom mini flares, with what i have, just smoothe it out.
Here it is before i worked on it at all.
Tire rapage, and why i didnt wanna drive home with that continuing.
This is the main part im worried about fixing since its torn.
The lip. Its time for more zipties
The other side. Not nearly as bad because Todd wasnt touching it :P
Tire got messed up tho
Then it was time to get to work. And this was the first tool i wanted to use. hahaha
Then they looked like this
Then i busted out my favorite tool.
The Roll-O-Matic 300!
Then busted out my new hammer and dollie set.
Starting smashing it, trying to knock out some of the dents, and straighten some of the metal.
My awesome spacers that caused all this. haha
This is how it sits tonight. I'll take the fender off and work on it some more when i have more time.
Did a little work on the passenger side, mainly to flaten the sharp edge that was cuttin into my tire. haha
I love the way these 2 pics came out, Even tho there like the same. haha. Oh and i raised the car like half inch too. well the front. But imma prolly go another half inch, at least while im workin on the fender and such, i dont wanna rub really bad, on these horrible tires, or mess up the fender anymore.
Thanks for reading! Goodnight! :D
