You have to be very careful if you don't know where your going, because you may not get there.

Talking Do virtual mods count???

Playing around with MS Paint as I'm would like to make my Patriot look more like the XJ I used to have as well as protect it from dings and scratches. The plan would be to use Plasti-Dip for the wheel wells and aftermarket molding . What do you think? I don't think the pictures do it justice because of the lack of contrast but I value other opinions. I'm going to post this in Exteriors also.

Oh. I did wash it yesterday if that counts!

Alpine double din dvd, 200w Kicker 4 channel amp, CDT 6x9's in the corners, Viper Alarm/Remote start, Black Shorty Antenna, Patriot Rear Insert, Mud Flaps, Dog Cargo Netting, Husky cargo liner and my favorite accessory...a safety 1st car seat for jr!

well, I just reset my clock 5 mins fast (cos it loses about 5 mins a month). While i was sitting there I was thinking about an annoying aspect about cars these days that is when you are driving very slowly, in my case, off road, around lakes or reservoirs looking for likely fishing spots and everytime I get in and out I have to buckle up and un buckle the belt or I get that annoying "bong-bong" that drives me mad. Playing around with the belt, I noticed that it only has to be pulled out about 4 or 5 inches to cancel the warning light and stop the noise, so I just pull out a bit and hook it around the back door lever. problem solved.

My bright red tails stuck out like a sore thumb against my black, so a light to medium tint job has commenced. Pics to follow...
