  • Conundrum: lol, they're contagious and more lights coming on, worrying to see the oil pressure indicator and also the windshield washer fluid lights, however I'll just wait and see if it goes away when things dry out. Good thing I took it through emissions this morning. Never Fails. lol

  • Conundrum: Wow, with all the rain I've been in as well as flooding in the X on Fat Tire, I have a new issue. Set light blinking rapidly and goes away after restarting the engine. I did a little research and I guess the cruise actuator can get nasty and seems plausible since I went through a puddle on purpose on the right hand side and that made the set light for cruise start flashing again. I'll check it out after the rain stops. lol Have fun and be safe out there everyone.

How well does the paint stick to OEM aluminum alloy rims ?

I hit mine with scotchbrite before spraying with black bedliner.  Didn't have any chipping issues.  Use a good quality paint and prep and clean the surface, shouldnt be an issue.

Awesome, I'm going to paint mine this weekend and put them on my X.  Solar yellow with the blacked out rims should like sweet

Maybe I should of mentioned that the paint will be soft for at least a week or so.  Also, check the valve, it might just be loose.

Yeah, did some touch up on the paint, and it was the valve the guy at divot tire said none of the where tightened where they were supposed to be but it's all fixed now.
