    Quick question.. Would it be worthwhile to wrap the oil line above the turbo yourself with some sort of heat wrap tape? I found some on Amazon that is "Capable of withstanding radiant heat up to 2000°F and direct up to 500°F". I don't want to go through the motions of replacing the entire line...

    Gen1 Appearance, Body, Detailing, & Interior
    I did a few things yesterday to make my cruze look more like I think it should. I went to StreetImage in San Leandro CA.

    I have an idea for a design for wrapping parts of my Cruze with a matte black vinyl but have a couple questions I was hoping someone could answer for me. First question is how long will the vinyl stay on the car? I have never used vinyl on anything and really have no clue on how well it will...
