Re: What did you do to your xb today??

my buddy does car wraps and signs so we just made our own. We scanned the factory one in the changed it up. we had to print a few and test then fix but we finally got it close enough.. the plastic we used i dont think it would fit in a regular printer. if so i may be able to get a them template and email to you..

It's always great when something that has the potential to screw up your day turns out a plus.

"spoiler" - i haven't heard one called that in a long time. What is a "vent visor?" I think the front lip has a bunch of connectors. Not sure about screws. I just zip tie. i'm ghetto that way. Plus you gotta tell us gen 1 or 2. Not sure they have the same number of connectors.....

Yay for the Good Samaritan! I always try to help people. But i have actually had a guy tell me "no thanks" when he saw my car. lol. (and he was stuck in the middle of a very busy road.) oh well. Glad it worked out well for you Mr. Russ.

Your picture did not show up. and your English is fine. Where are you? (also I haven't heard the word "tinsmith" very often. What a cool term.)

Good luck with your installations. When you have 30 posts, please put up some pictures of your car.

I think the British use the word tinsmith and US call them bodymen.
My dad was a bodyman for 30 years and a mechanic for 30 years before that.

On a side note, that is the reason so many people ended up with Smith as a last name. Between tinsmith and blacksmith it made a bunch of them when they first came to the US. I know my mothers maiden name came to be because (as I'm told through the family story) my ancestors came from the ford of Woff on the Isles. so they became Woffords. And yes it's that Wofford family. They bought a working plantation, freed the slaves and started a school for them. Plain old Scots-Irish folks.
