Thanks both!

On the 11's you can't move the bars, which might look odd with the rola basket but i hope not

The rims would be this weekend but my son is sick in hospital so it will have to wait a while

Sorry to hear that dude. Kids in hospital is no fun at all. At least you have your priorities right. But, Your compass is gonna look awesome with the blacked out grille/wheels and the basket on top!

Our boys' back to 100% now, they were worried it was menigitis but was most likely mono

So today I swapped back to my winters and prepped the alloys (with the help of my beautiful and understanding wife!) for plasti-dipping tomorrow :)

These threads are the most popular on other sites, so let's try it here. Mods, wheeling, road trip or just a wash and polish? Let's see a pic or two....

I swapped my winter rims back to my summer ones, using the scissor jack from the trunk - glad I got seperate rims not just tires, now I can do it myself every year, saving $50 or so each time

Next it needs another a wash!

:hail: While I admire you for doing the Job and saving the $50.00 ...I myself have no faith in the scissor jack and plus I'm notorious for snapping nuts off no matter the size..Don't even no my own strength..lol.. Have to ask though how you get by in the Winter Months with the Low Tire Air warning ?? Back in 2008 each Tire Scensor was $38.00 x 4 = $152.00 tacked onto whatever price you paid for a second set of Rims.. But then again if You do like they did back in the 60's by sticking a piece of gum over the annoying dash light...lol..or maybe a colorful sticker...

Around 3,500 miles the oil change indicator reminded me it was time for an oil change. The dealer picked it up and the Train Chaser had his first oil change...they grow up so fast! :p

changed the oil with mobil one and a fram filter. used to take it to get oil changed but theres a certain satisfaction doing it yourself. cant post any pics yet cause my phone is ancient. its a 2008 silver compass sport with some chrome accessories. thinking about painting the tires letters. not too many options for white letter tires that size

Wow, you might want use a different filter. High grade oil with the lowest quality filter. LOL

Wix and NAPA Gold are two you should find easy enough. Otherwise get real cheap oil and change it often 3000 miles max.
