You have a great jaw line for the suite!

What jaw? I barely have one. LOL. That's the chin of the Anticlaus helmet making me look better with it... maybe the mouth shape and the pale makeup helps. Very Happy

Now, you don't want to see what happened on the way back home with the car (it was on a car dolly, as recommended by you).... just two words: HELL and DESTRUCTION.

Nothing BIG (IMO) happened to the car, but significant damage. I will post all of this on a separate topic.... I don't think this is the proper topic to post it. Confused

That's a good friend of mine, member of the 501st formerly from GA, and moved to California last year. He's teh "HIP HOP TROOPER" (google it, he does great stuff around for charity). He's just doing the "What's up?" pose.

Hey, probably it was my turn for the worst, and it didn't happen to you. It was probably a matter of time until the tires gave up (you've told me before, to change the tires at some point). You were right.

Everything is coming along slowly, repairing little by little at the time, and trying to have it at least in almost the same shape when I got it in. Again, anything could happen when you have an OLD car... and this one is not an exception.

So what happened? This is all too cryptic for me to make out. I gather something happened to the car while towing it home?

He posted his hellish story on FB but I'll let him elaborate. Let's just say this was about as far from 'nothing is fucked' as could be, bah. He definitely had some troubles during the tow (uh, tows?)..

From he facebook post it looks like 2 of the rims and tires were destroyed and the front air dam and side ground effect molding was ripped off. I got some info on some replacement rims if you need it.

I can't believe you found a better deal on the rim than I did. I went to the seller you've posted when you were making the build about a year ago (I think)... and the rim cost me about $80 total.

Anyway, while I've never posted the HELL (literally) of an experience I've had while towing this baby... and after almost $350 in just two rims (one for the actual rim, other for the SPARE), since all this damage was not just by the already old tires, which is my fault to not replacing them, but a SPARE TIRE THAT DID NOT FIT.

Some of the damage was done by the blowing of the first tire (long story, I will post later tomorrow the timeline and details), and through the towing process, making the car lower on one side since both tires blown wre from th same side.

Posting the story tomorrow.
