    Ouch that sucks, def not going to buff out, bit that shows you had some fun.

    "Gives it character" is what everyone's been telling me. What size tires and wheels are you running?

    Man that sucks, but that's where the learning come from, you dont turn on ruts, you just power through. I run hollister with 12psi and never came close to popping beads.

    Ouch, those are some nasty scratches. I tried my crappy General Grapper AW at 30 PSI. They work a lot better but I'm afraid the skimpy sidewall won't hold up much. I just need to invest in better tires. But first i'm looking at a dry suit and a new mountain bike. So the tires will have to wait.

    I made it out on Monday. I ended up doing 2/3 dives on Sunday. I was super cold! I had my deepest dive so far...99 feet. Saw a rock fish trying to eat an octopus and a few other octopus.

    Update: Took the tire and wheel into a tire shop yesterday. Tire wasn't punctured (which I had hoped was the case) so for a total of $10 I got it mounted and balanced! :yay: Still going to need bodywork, and still going to have to replace the camper shell window somehow, but saving $200 instead of having to buy a completely new tire is good news!

    Nope, just blew the tire off of the rim going down a steep, deeply rutted hill.

    Yeah I saw that but how come your back end was so high off the ground? Was it just because of the steep angle and all the ruts?

    Yep! It's hard to tell because of the angle in the picture, but that hill was extremely steep - almost too steep to walk.

    New camper glass - $120. Should be getting put in by Wednesday

    Estimate for body work - $1800. Long story short, I'm not paying that much!
