I don’t own a truck, nor do I own a set of nuts (truck or otherwise) but a passing glance at a Tesla Cybertruck with “Cybernuts” made me stop and wonder what other horrors lurk on the internet. Perhaps, even, within the hearts of the very citizens of this mom-and-pop automotive outlet.

My own experience with modifying cars is fairly limited because frankly, if I’d screwed up something as expensive and precious as a car, there would be no sympathy from any corner for me. However, I did once try to remove some crummy home-applied window tint from my first car, a 1995 Dodge Avenger. This very stupid process ended with tons of flecks of gray blobs on my windows, despite the majority of it bubbling off with ease. It took a razor and a lot of effort to go from something that looked bad to something that looked even worse. Time (not) well spent!
