I lived in Redwood City until I got married, then moved to where my wife lived. We live a few miles from the Carquinez Bridge. I hate the weather up here: it's too cold. Redwood City has fantastic weather. I miss it over there...

Hey BluRay
I'm originally from Castro Valley but I now have an office in Hayward and I'm in Union City frequently. I actually split my living time between Castro Valley and Twain Harte. Hope to see you and Blu around. Will you be going to the car show on the 27? at Blackhawks?

smokey12, I actually saw an Arctic White yesterday driving in Hayward off Hesperian Blvd. I was gonna ask if that was you but just saw your sig. Maybe someone you know? They said what's up driving by but was too far away.

I've seen that one around, if it's the same guy he lives in Pleasanton over by the Sunol golf course.

I see. It was a coupe with a carbon flash painted spoiler.

Plasti-dipped all of the emblems and grill gloss black to get rid of the chrome. I definitely like it much better than before!! :D

Thanks! I ordered them off of Amazon.

Amazon.com: Gorilla Automotive 71633NBC "The System" Acorn Black Chrome Wheel Locks (12mm x 1.50" Thread Size) - For 5 Lug Wheels: Automotive

Gorilla Automotive P/N: 71633NBC

Amazon will tell you that it doesn't fit our cars but their system is wrong. The thread size is correct which is 12mm x 1.50 for our cars.

Definitely recommend these wheel locks as I have had them on many of my cars. I like the fact that each bolt requires a key to remove.

I would say this kit is a must for people with Black painted wheels!!! :p

Yesss... They look great..

Looks awesome! You should enter the pic with the SF skyline in the photos of the month maybe?!!

Hope to see your car in person on 4/27 also maybe! I would love to see those black emblems up close.

Cheers,
