I've thought about strips but that seems like a common thing, an I'm not sure I really like the look :/. I've been trying to think of things you never really see so make it unique

Do you think some high quality spray paint would be good to paint the weather stripping with??

Well there's rarely anything that hasn't been thought of that's been done to a car. I'd be surprised if no one has thought of your trim. Maybe not in your color combos. So the trick is to make it your own. Personally, I like the hockey stripes and I think it would look good on your car. But then again how will it go with the painted trim? I couldn't tell you. Basically, you have to picture what it might look like and if you like try it for real. Another thing to consider is possible putting louvers on it. That's what I'm doing with my car; picture what I want then try it.
As for application, I'd probably use a paint paint gun.

I like the new rims, they look great!

Rear louvers look great if you ask me, I don't care for sides ones until you get 05 and newer (or the classics)

I was thinking it could be the angle the picture was taken along with the fact I don't have the plastic piece that goes in the wheel well to stop all the mud and water, but I'm not sure

Lots of things could cause it mainly an accident that bent something. I've never messed with a new edge suspension but you might just want to visually inspect the lower control arm and the strut and make sure nothing looks messed up. You ave that other new edge, maybe take a measurement from the center of the wheel to the edge of the fender on both and see what you come up with.

Could also be the front bumper making it look that way. Have you changed it with an aftermarket one? Maybe it's just shaped differently.

If it is bent or messed up obviously it isn't good. Wears tires, makes noises but probably isn't safe most importantly.

I just checked, there's a little more space between the fender and the tire on the left side than there is the right side.

Something is bent. You can tell it's been in a wreck from the way the body panels line up in front. But just look everything over and replace whatever is damaged.

Could also be worn out bushings. I'd check out the suspension man.

Oil leaks always come from top to bottom front to back. So if it's only on the front of the oil pan it could be the oil pan.

I'd jack it up and try moving the suspension around to see if you have any play.

Does it drive ok? Wouldn't that be a dead giveaway to a problem if it didn't?

Sometimes these things happen over time and they don't slap you in the face. But yeah seems like it would pull or shake.

It drives great, that's what's weird. It drives perfectly straight if I take my hands off the wheel an it's smooth.
