I have the blue cheapy disposables from harbor freight. They're ok on smooth surfaces but cant take a puncture, and just about everything punctures them. Or oil. One drop of oil and all grip is gone. Since most jobs require them to do all of that, I use a few pairs any time I use one pair.

I assume the gloves Vern is talking about are nothing like these.

Right. While the dark blue perforated type were there there were heavy duty gauntlet versions with a thick coating of the blue stuff on the front. So heavy work glove tough and spider man sticky.

sounds good. but the interface to the glove is still me! perhaps it would spread the force over more area like the back of the fingers too, and that could help. but at that point we're using a gripping gauntlet and it's probably not good for the 0.01" thick carbon tube i'm removing! i'm gonna use thermal properties to my advantage and get a better prepped surface next time, not all i could find locally/quickly in the sizing i needed: monroe exhaust pipe.

Hi Folks -
I need some help to find a reputable garage, preferably in the South Hills, that can do the 100k mile service (timing belt/water pump) on my '04 Acura TL?
I will never, ever, never take it to Spitzer Acura (even though it's not far from me).
Thanks!

You could always give Moore performance and race parts a call. They might do the work. They are typically a Subaru shop but will work on anything

If Moore Performance can't do it. I took my accord here when I needed the timing belt done. They do good work and have done plenty of timing belt/water pump jobs in the past. They used to have the pricing for each car on their website but i see that has changed.

Just admit it; after finishing the mass effect trilogy, you got really bored and ended up masturbating way too much.

Anybody looking for a job? I recently got promoted to parts manager at Day West Liberty Subaru and am now looking for a competent parts counter person. I just posted a craigslist ad and we ran an ad in the Sunday paper, but you know how that goes. Would be full time, strictly 40 hours a week. I'm looking for somebody with experience but that is not a necessity, just basically anybody that WANTS to work and WANTS to make money. PM me on here or email subaruparts@dayauto.com

Whats the discount like!?! Some of the guys on here should quit their jobs and work for you, even if the hourly rate is less they would probably pay off in parts! HA HA

If you're buying that many OEM parts, you should probably just park it and quit crashing...


Blinden, which Nexus 7 case did you get? So far, all the ones I've seen are bags of dicks.

Vindler, almost everyone here gets the same pricing on parts as you get as a employee at a dealer. It is typically 10% over cost. I know a certain vendor here that sells at that price level to everyone here.

Hey all,
I'm taking my '12 in tomorrow to have the radio looked at/replaced and oil changed. One thing I have an issue with is a lot of black dirt/brake dust on the center of each wheel. It is stuck and will not come off even using one of the cheap yellow wheel cleaner, looks like a scotchbrite pad on a stick, and Westley's bleach white. That cleans the brake dust off all other areas of the wheels. Is this a 'normal' thing for a Subaru? I asked at the dealer and they told me it was but I'm having a difficult time believing that because if it was just grease and brake dust it should at least smear when I try to clean it. It is happening on all 4 wheels evenly.

Thanks

good question!

Sounds like you might not be using the correct product to clean. Ask your service advisor if it is usual, if it isn't you might be having an issue with the wheels and subaru would know.

The odd thing is that it is just around the lug nuts and center of the wheel. The spokes and rim show normal dust and clean easily. If it was an old car I would be looking at leaking axle seals to be the problem. I'll bring it up again tomorrow morning and see what they say. I may take it to a different dealer for a 2nd opinion too.
