so i had a little bit too much fun in the snow, and messed up my passenger side front fender and mirror. and turn signal. if anyone has any of these parts and are willing to part with them that would be awesome. it bugs the crap out of me being all dented. My car is kensington grey, and itd be sweet if i could get the same color from the get go. thanks guys

ahh, the snow. i forgot that last time i was in the snow i was on stock wheels. these tires didnt behave the same. but luckily road was kinda wide before low sloping ditch... the integra sucks in the snow, compared to the GVR4

i know where there is a complete GOLD color Galant... click its on the chopping block in the next week or so to be crushed.

I have brand new all season tires, the car does great in the snow.

I took the car out Thursday night after it dumped a good amount of snow. I'm on ethanol, turned up to 500+awhp with a welded center diff. The alternator threw sparks and died after many 8k RPM center spins and left me stranded at 10:30pm.

I should have known better.

My F350 does alright in the snow, great in 4WD, 2WD ehhh nothing loaded in the bed so it's easy to kick the rear out at 5mph.
