Speedy has always been pretty quick for me, unless the pace of their work is not what you find unfavorable? I was going to schedule to have them put on their repel stuff for $30, but I guess I'll hold off until I get a new windshield.

I was going to have CCA put a slight tint on my windshield to help reduce glare. I think I'll go ahead and replace my windshield through insurance for $100, then get the tint for $100, then immediately get the repel from Speedy for $30.

My window may crack again, but until then I would like to reduce the light and give this repelling stuff a try. Plus that crack bothers the crap out of me.

I guess the real question here is, how easy/cheep/worth it to find JDM headlights? btw, AKRS, nice ride. i already got the 04-05 tail assembly on the way and bumper is on so i need to complete the look here. thanks to whoever answers this question. /noob

Buy the JDMs if you want the looks. Invest in good projectors if you want performance. Add paint and your choice of shrouds, etc. and you can end up with looks and performance.

Thank you! And yeah JDM's are very expensive. Take aleutdude's advice. JDM's look good, but were made for driving on the opposite side of the road

I have a Morimoto mini D2S projector if you want to have a look sometime. PM me with any questions, for sure. I have a DIY on a Bugeye retro in my Aftermarket Lighting thread.

Sonny does fantastic work. Very proud of the set he built me. They are also more RACECAR than you might initially realize. They are certainly one of the best performance mods I've put on my car. Alaska has tons of night time driving opportunities this time of year.

Got my advice from Sonny and from some research from past posts. VERY knowledgable and helpful. Search this forum for my thread on mine. It was a lot easier than I thought even with the touch of my own creativity and I was extremely pleased with the results.

It's good to hear first-hand that morimoto d2s projectors are good, that's what i had in mind.. i'll be sure to check out the DIY thread aleutdude (although i'm sure i read it already awhile ago, great writeup).

Can anyone refer me to a daycare? Wife and I are looking for a secondary daycare facility just in case our primary is out sick or has something going on throughout the months. We looked at a residential facility the other day and it seemed like a good fit until the lady running the place tells us that she brings the kids out walking on the trails in the summers and takes them shopping with her. The thing was is that she relies on her friends to get around and she also tells me that she was planning on taking public transportation in the future because she is without a vehicle at the moment. Wife and I aren't so sure about that...smh. We would also consider an on-call sitter if anyone here could refer that person/s to me. Thanks in advance!

Why is it that after a HEAVY night of drinking (damn you scotch and whiskey) all I crave and enjoy is a greasy, nasty, McDonalds burger?

I just finished Season 1 of Breaking Bad. Gangsta.

The main actor reminds me of Gary Oldman, which is cool.

Anyone on here computer smart?

Flashplayer is causing Firefox to keep freezing up.
Pull Flashplayer off and it's fine.

Was working just fine until it did an auto update a few weeks ago.

Tried all the google search fixes and nothing has solved it.

Probably not helping but try installing the latest version of firefox if you don't have it. Uninstall all the add-ons and update flashplayer.
