Haha yeah my bad I wasn't very clear. I'm deff plastidipping the wheels at some point but the car has got so many dents and scratches I want to repaint it. But at the same time its getting close to 140k and there's really no point cuz I'm just gonna scratch it up again.
Damn passenger window, took the door card off to try and adjust the angle. Set both front and rear adjustment as low as it could go and still is catching the weather-stripping.
Also handbrake must be really worn out cuz I can not get it to work either. Tried adjusting back by the brakes and by the lever multiple times. Seems like its working, pull lever with wheel off ground and I can't spin it. Then when I use it while moving... nothing no stopping power at all. Very strange..
Here are some pics from yesterdays pathetic snow storm. Snow was barely on the streets.
Also I noticed that i have a squeeling belt or at least that is what it sounds like. I am assuming it the power steering because it squeels for a few seconds on start up then stops. But if I try to drive without letting the car fully warm up, the power steering assist is non existent at first and the squeeling comes back...
Now the shop was supposed to replace all the belts idlers and pulleys with ones that I provided.
Is this common after installing new belts or is it more likely they didn't actually put the new ones in? I really don't think they would do something like that.
You should probably check the power steering fluid level first before you do anything else. My friend's Geo Prizm was rattling like a mofo for a while on start-up before he realized it was in desperate need for fluid lol
