    Hey guys, wanted to get a suggestion on aftermarket or OEM suspension which will make a ride more comfortable than it is right now and will increase current clearance at least by 2-3 inches.

  8. Painting a large chip -- suggestions?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    The Kia has a paint chip in the rear right corner -- most likely caused by somebody brushing against it though I suppose a rock could have bounced up. It is almost two quarters in length, too long for a paint touch up brush I believe. What would you recommend for painting such an area...
