Just arrived today:

One automatic transmission filter and pan gasket
One rear brake light bulb socket
One power steering reservoir cap o-ring seal
Four rubber wiper inserts

WooHoo!!!

Does anybody know if/where one can buy the bright metal strips that fit into the rubber wiper inserts? I would like to find some that fit exactly the OEM wiper inserts. I can't find a part listed on RealOEM. Mine are looking kinda tired.

Front and rear bumper, the new grill, the new rear lights are the gift from someone off the street in an Honda Civic. Too bad I put a dent on the rear bumper already. Plus the BSW speakers I got for myself.

Maybe.

It takes .223 or 5.56 nato. Same clip and rds as AR15. Has a 17.44in barrel which is same or longer then AR's but everything is in the stock. This thing is so light.

New Mexico gun laws are very lacks. I grew up in cali and my parents still live there so I know what u mean about cali gun laws. I can walk into any gun store in NM, and with my military id, walk out 30mins later with anything. Hand guns, .50 cals, whatever.

QUESTION: WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE TAKE CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS BY SPELLING IT "XMAS?"
"I refuse to say or write ‘Xmas!’" Do you know how many times I’ve heard people say this? Six. At least. Or maybe six hundred. Their reason… "I will not take Christ out of Christmas!" It seems to be a broad assumption that Xmas is a new thing that atheists are trying to implement. Or maybe the evil corporations. Or maybe idiot bloggers. Or maybe the gays. I don’t know. So is that really true?
ANSWER: Atheists had nothing to do with it. Neither did Hindus. Or Jews. Or Hitler. Or idiot bloggers. For hundreds of years X literally represented Christ in religious writings. X is the Greek letter chi, first letter of Greek Krhstos, or Christ. So literally, Christmas and Xmas are the exact same thing. I know Walmart has ruined a lot of Christmas, but this one (sadly) can’t be pinned on them.

It's a VERY good read - http://www.danoah.com/2012/12/7-thin...christmas.html

Ah... I first saw the FN logo and the odd configuration and assumed it was that 5.7mm P90 or whatever they call the civilian version. Quite nice.
