Sterling Tire.

Keswick, Ontario.  Home of Sterling Tire.  Worth the drive.   I was in need of some rear rubber.  Since I ran 215 40s in the rear last year.  I wanted a slightly chunkier chunkier 205 40 to keep the outer diameter and rake the same as last year.  Ended up with Nexens.   Almost identical size to my previous setup.  I had planned on taking more photos but found out the hardest part about taking photos is just remembering to take more photos. lol.  I seem to do that all the time.  Dave and I shared photo duty.  Still only managed 4 good ones. We did catch Jimmy from Pfaff Tuning in his M3, on the way back to Toronto.  OOhhh lawwwwddd.  That e92 sounded good.

Scraped.Crusaders. X Eurokracy Kruise

Eurokrac2yThis idea came about pretty fast.  After viewing an Air Society post about Eurokracy’s Hotel of choice.  I mentioned the Scraped.Crusaders.  contingency of 20 or so people strong.  Rick from Air Society quickly replied with an “if you organize it, they will come” proposal for a Toronto to Montreal cruise. So…. we’re doing it.

Precision Rim Repair.

We like shinny things.  When Geoff and I decided to get our wheels refinished we wanted to have the best.  I’ve always been impressed with Dave’s (of Stanceiseverything.com) Works.  So I went to the shop responsible for polishing them.   Precision Rim Repair.  They are more than just a polishing shop.  They correct bends, re weld cracks, sandblast, strip, and overall perform miracles on damaged wheels.  While dropping the wheels off Ric found a crack on one of my barrels.  Fortunately, I was already at the right place.  It was welded up while the set was getting polished.  Geoff`s LM`s are currently getting a polish job too.  Along with a few dents straightened.
Pics of my beebs soon.  This preview will do for now/  😉pre16

Winter Grime

Grimey, can also be used to describe these pics.  I thought I’d take those cool closeup shots of wheels before a rebuild.  They look like crap.  AS do the wheels right now.  Soon to be mirror polished lips at Precision Rim Repair. Faces are staying copper. 🙂  Will be posting pics of the results.  Will have to step up my closeup wheel pics game.wheel3

Song: Ben Howard – The Fear (Moonlight Matters Remix)

Equipment: Canon 5DmkIII, 16-35, 70-200, merlin steadicam and my own two hands

I wish I had pulled my tripod out at some point during the weekend.
