Frank, genius. Franklyn and Ken: Yup did the same. Managed to keep my face mostly away from the hard thing though.

I still have the scars from that one. Went all the way to the bone on my eyebrow. I was road rash from hairline to chin. I honestly though "well, this is it" when I went over.

Yes there is, yes it's the one I got, and no, it doesn't come with washers for ****s sakes. You pay $200 for a kit and it's missing an integral part. Whichever ones Joe got didn't come with washers either though. Pick 'em up at a hardware store for $0.21 each. I put two good thickness washers above and below each RSM.

Anyways, before you guys ever sold a car, after you've cleaned it and stuff.... did you ever just sit in it? not drive it. just sit.

:sad:
Yes, and then every time I saw her out with her new owner, I cried again. It sucks I still can't believe you sold her.

I got the high performance aluminum and rubber ones. idk if they're worth the extra $55, but I haven't seen the other options. I do like them though. IMO they're worth it. Especially if this doesn't happen to me:

Carlos... the guard was probably paranoid thinking you were checking him out behind them glasses

Amber, sorry to hear Hope you feel better soon.

I'm neither for nor against Obama, and not trying to turn this into a political debate, but here if I'm sick, I may have to wait just as long (lets call it 4 hours average), but I don't get billed stupid ammounts for it either.

Well let me tell you about Mother Russia, I visited last year. I needed some dental work done, so i went to the clinic, walked in, gave them my passport and this citizen paper, got the work done not paying a single penny, and walked out. Thats it. Now why cant US have something at least similar, may be not completely free or someone may go bankrupt.
Its really frustrating, because everyone is getting butt raped by the healthcare system and everyones taking it.

Anyway, good work with the wheels, they look great. Whole car looks real good man.

Thank you very much. I've been trying my hardest to get it where I want. I think part of the problem with the picture was it was raining when it was taken.

Usama. I plan to put them back to black. Especially the diffuser. I hate it being red so much. Any suggestions on how to put them back without messing them up?

The ones I bought were the TMS ones you put the link for last night (for $169 IIRC), on the drop down menu, select the Aluminum/rubber ones for $55 more.

Something cheap, that won't die, is an old '84-'89 Toyota Van, I had two of them, the only thing that killed the first was a 5 ton Peterbilt moving truck. The second ran with a cracked head for 2 years, with damn near no coolant. It ran hot, but never in the red.



They're great on gas, and surprisingly fast. Not quick, fast. Smooth ride. And a turning radius better than our Bimmers.

They take forever to get to speed, but have a reasonable high top end for a minivan.

These too, the only problem with Hondas (aside from the obvious of them being Hondas) is that everyone who owns one truly believes that it's a race car.

IK he said he wants something reliable and not a BMW... But I think a pedo van might be taking things to far

No man, those vans are awesome. I miss mine. Besides, Sama will tell you, those Toyotas have too many windows for a Pedovan.
