Can't find much in my searching, but here's a semi-complete description: http://www.faqfarm.com/Car/Repair/788

Really what it comes down to is spinning the internals with no load bearing on them, which is not what they are designed to do.

Morning cruizer: I got hit at a parking lot, and i pathced up the crack to prevent rust. Im hoping to fix it.
Miguel: Thanx man. The only rust spot is the long piece under the lights, above the bumper, but that will get fixed ASAP!(DAmN WINTER!!), and thats because i cheaped out when i was getting the car painted....
Jay: car WILL be getting dumped, Basket weaves painted gunmetal, ith polished lip, and Mtech 2 sides....

Looks nice, T.

Aren't your headrests tilted forward a bit too much in the first pic?? It seems that the seats are reclined a lot too...

The seat back/headrest angles look weird. Nothing important, really.

Actually, mine are like that too. Must be the height issue (we're both tall, need neck support).

That could be... Us short 5' 10" guys don't have that problem, I guess. My headrests are not raised and are therefore almost vertical.
