Figured it was time I got the stone chips in my bumper and bonnet repaired, so in a moment of inattention ran up the back of a ute, at about a walking pace. Not so much as a scratch on their towbar, but it did a real number on my bumper and radiator.

There goes the no-claim discount.

Wow! Bummer! That really did do a number. Good luck with repairs.

Welp, that's a shame -

However, by the time you could have scraped all those bugs off, the bumper would have been in such bad shape, you would have had to replace it anyway -

Now the rock chips don’t look that bad lol

Body kit time! And since it slightly moved the radiator, you might as well throw in a turbo

In all seriousness, that sucks bro. Literally hate seeing damaged twins Good luck

Now that I think about it, getting a new radiator just before Summer is awesome. The old one really was very clogged with bugs.

They will most likely shoot it with a "bug gun" just before the paint dries -

I built a 0.3 cubic foot box for a 6" lanzar woofer. And used a small pioneer amp from a TS WX50 to power it. It sounds much better than just the four 4" speakers. (I took out the amp that was powering the door speakers recently, I also took out the door speakers... )


Edit:pic... (Oh crap! No!!! Not that ugly pic!!!!)

[url=https://imgflip.com/memegenerator]/url]

The box fits in the middle of my "spare" 18x8 wheel. I have it strapped to the middle with a ratchet strap. It's ugly, but functional.

I am going to make a different box, for a different sub. (one thats dvc)

I could build you a custom box w/amp. Would be a fun project to work on.
My woodworking shop is decent.

I want to make a small box with this sub next. It's a bit more than I normally like to spend, but the specs look great.
