Can you take that High Altitude badge in your signature and run it through a 3-D printer? I want to put it on the back of my car

I would imagine that I could if I had access to one. I'm kind of disappointed that it didn't come with an HA specific badge to begin with and I'm probably going to look into having something made when I get the time.

This was my first attempt at "something".

Love the Granite HA.
Here is the only wheel brush my Summit has ever seen lol

yeah for black painted wheels I would not recommend it lol. Summit wheels(non platinum) are just polished alloy no coatings or paints just metal. polished alloy is just thousands of micro scratches so if I add a few thousand more you cant tell the difference. unlike any other car I have had that's one thing that is nice about these wheels, scrap a curb, sand it, polish it, done no coating.

Re: For those who drive a Hemi 5.7

With the HA wheels being painted gloss black it's like any other surface of the car. You can put a coat of wax on them and get rid of any swirls. Just wax them with the rest of the car. I even would wax my Summit wheels and I feel it always brightened them up to a more chrome like finish. A friend here at work also has a Summit and he isn't into cars like I am and his wheels would look painted silver compared to mine which almost looked chrome. What a difference a nice hand wash and wax makes...even to wheels.
Here is a cool shot of the polished Summit wheels after being waxed. Really brings them out!

yeah that does look good and better than mine does. I used to labor over washing and waxing my cars years back and they always looked perfect. But my reckless younger years and activities has taken a bad toll on my back where now in my 40s the bending and stretching for the time needed for that can be excruciating. Even the quick easy process of installing those LED fog lights and HID bulbs was challenge. So the premium car wash once a month and paying for a detail once a year is as good as it gets. Still do the oil though cause its so quick and easy, anything to keep it away from the dealer.
