    This. I drove my Fury through parts of Ohio, Illinois and across the perimeter of Michigan. I got tired of putting gas in it around the Mackinaw area lol. When not driven every day, it's fine though.

    This too, I support the black, ceramic tint option.

    Window stickers are staying, sorry, haha. I've considered tinting the windows, but it has to flow with the car too. Super dark just wouldn't flow at all. 35% might, but I'm still up in the air on it. The top is shot, and I feel it would be a waste right now to tint the windows and leave a shitty top on the car.

    The driver door is already toast, too many projects going on and not enough time to take on a larger project. It is what it is. It'll get done eventually.

    I may have killed two birds with one stone here!

    How so? Heater core blew! Hopefully that's been part of a water leak I've had for months (doubtful but hoping) and that's where the knocking I've been hearing for months has been coming from too.





    My driver's fenderwell by the firewall was also full of leaves and some old pliers. Found these while trying to find said water leak, haha.
