    Yeah, it's gotten messy this year again. It was clean a while back. Speaking of other OGs, that's GSRCRXSi's toolbox in the background. OE. I'll make a thread here in a bit. Bruh, nice to see you alive. We gotta talk, I'm planning on going to deadhorse next summer, via motorcycle.

    Well, dang. I was just starting to troll the tech sections again for stuff that's not in the factory service manuals. I can't believe it's been 15 years since I've been on here, I was using it as a resource back in 2006, but never saw the need to post. So, I'm back again, because I bought...

    Nah, I just drive it around like normal on all season tires. It's so light it just kinda floats on top of the snow. I did use it for some other stuff the other day:

    My daughter asked me how much gas the Acty uses, after we got done at the gas station, so we built a spreadsheet to track it. I can see on the tanks where I didn't go on any highways are actually pretty high efficiency, and the tanks that were all highway sucked down the fuel. This little thing...

    Nice truck. I've always wanted to actually have a truck to go camping with.

    I dunno, it's kinda a pain to take a "non-standard" car to a tint place. They have to cut it by hand, and most of them aren't very good at it, lol.

    No pictures, but I did work a little bit on the paint on the right door... I'm gonna have to get the paint thickness gauge out, because it's gonna take a lot of cutting. I'm not sure it'll ever match. Now, next thing: Do I get it tinted or leave it without tint?

    I'm pretty excited. It's filthy, and is going to need to be washed a couple times, but it's baaaaaaack!

    GM of the body shop just called me. He is going to get the invoice taken care of, and give me a call this afternoon. He says he's not sure why they added it to the invoice, he supposed it was probably because it was listed as materials for the job, but they carried the cost over since that's...

    Maybe they'll come to their senses today, and make it right today... Probably not though.

    I called my insurance company, who then called the body shop. Body shop confirmed to my insurance company that "it was damaged during the course of repair." So, now I wait until Monday, or until they can get in contact with the general or regional manager to get the total due fixed.

    Well... This gets better... The body shop (unnamed at this point) called to tell me my truck was ready. And then they said the total was going to be $3184.30. I asked how that could be nearly double of my estimate ($1477.xx), and I've received no supplemental quote. The guy told me that it was...
