Didn't see a thread like this on here but I think this could be cool like the "show me your hood" thread. I'd like to see what you guys drive.
So post pics of your ride HERE in this thread, or just talk about cars...
So I'm in the process of redoing my vehicles. It's not that I'm rich or trying to burn money, this actually makes allot of sense financially. I don't want to buy new vehicle(s) and add a car payment every month for five years but I'm also tired of driving in the same old same old with all the dings and dents that have accumulated over the years, especially on the Maxima.
There fore it makes more sense to take the vehicles I've already paid off and invest a little money in them to make them new to me again and so they look nice and run perfectly. So Virginia has the 06 Xterra and I've chosen the older vehicles.
I used to pay $500 monthly for the Max and $750 a month for the F150 (Just for a year, LOL) , now that they are paid off I will make a few more "payments" to get them looking great again.
The F150 had a patch of paint missing from on top of the cab, which was starting to rust, which is how this all got started. It also had chips in the paint that were starting to rust on the hood and tail gate so it made sense to protect the body by painting these parts. Same thing with the brush guard, everything was starting to rust due to my 4X4 adventures in Galveston. I've always liked big stripes so I figured"Why not?"
I like how everything on the truck is black and white. So I invested $950 for the F150, and I'm real happy with how it turned out.
Now that the F150 is done, the Maxima is getting completely redone. I already have the body kit and new grill and they are painting her as we speak.
Here are some pics...first a "BEFORE" pic...truck was looking pretty cool....
But here are the "after" PICS...I think it's a HUGE improvement..
When the Max is done I'll put the pics up on here....
