It has been absolutely amazing in West Lafayette the past few days. So yesterday I got the car washed, and spent a little bit of time drying the car by hand and started the first wheel polish job. I knew this one would be bad (chrome is all pitted from winter.)

It's not a perfect wash, but I'll be home for spring break in a week and I plan on claybar, polish, and waxing it. I'll post some more images then.

EDIT: Sorry about the crappy quality. These were taken with my iPhone, and I was just leaving for class.

You know, those 2 handicapped spots sat open ALLLL first semester, and I refuse to park in bufu anymore. Plus it allows no one to park next to me, and theres real handicapped spaces on the other side of the building with signs.

Yes Ed, I do have triple treads. LOVE them. Little noisy though. But traction is not an issue. There will be a full whorage when I get home for spring break. I didn't want to lug out the SLR, and then you'd be able to see how unclean it really is!!

And I'm pulling for my Boilermakers right now. If we take down Penn State tomorrow, we take a share of the Big Ten title!
