Yes, although I've never found those 2-tone ///M interiors to be particularly appealing.

Well done, Chadley!


Just please don't mention anything about me... I'm honestly a little afraid of the guy, it seems like he has serious anger problems.

I'm playing dumb. I dont know who you are

He just called me. First off he sounds sketchy as hell, like a mexi gang banger or some shlt. He was like "I saw you got a wisconsin number and i wanted to make sure you're legit". Dont worry I'm legit :evilsmile:

We're meeting at dunkin donuts tomorrow at 10

He stole an LSD from me. Said that he would pay me $200 for it, and I knew him pretty well at this point, so I trusted him. But he turned into a big bitch and refused to pay me the money because of a repair to his car that he never gave me a chance to finish.

It wouldnt be hard... You need like what, an E14, 10mm, 13mm, and a 17/18 to get it out? middle of the night... hand tools... have a friend ready to hit the gas in case he comes out and you have to run... seems easy enough. dont ask how i know what works

Lol, I'm assuming it's still sitting in his garage since he's too much of a bum to put it in himself.



That might actually work. Imagine how funny it would be when he starts up the car and it wouldn't move
