A few years ago, you guys refered to AMF in Imperial to get my wheels powdercoated. You told me to talk to a certain guy but I can't remember his name. Anyone know who does the powder coating there?

Had to shell out $1500 to get our gas line fixed. They dug up both ends and ran a plastic line through the old one.

I don't think it's possible to get it done for cheaper. And we had to have a DOT certified plumber do it. You should ask to make sure you do/don't need that cause that could make a difference.

Yep, that rings a bell. Thank.

A friend that has a new STI in the dark blue order a set a bronze wheels. The company shipped him flat black wheels and won't exchange them. He'd have to pay to ship them back and pay a restocking fee for their screw up. So he's just going to have them coated.

How expensive is their restocking fee that it makes more financial sense to pay for a full prep and powdercoat of 4 wheels? As long as he's not just going to powder them the same bronze..

I have insurance on all my utilities from the street to the house from the utility company it's like 5-8 bucks a month and pays up to a 10k fix plus any interior damages up to 50k. Totally worth it in my experience with a clogged sewer line to the street!

Check with your dealership's body shop and see if they have the dent wizard stop by. They removed over 30 hail dents from my wife's Nitro (what a POS car) without repainting and a few door dings from a Mazda I had many years ago. They were fairly reasonable price wise. The one was in Monroeville behind Shogun.

Yeah man I am picking that up as well, didnt know such things existed until equitable gas told me "if only you had gas line insurance..." f you! never heard of it!

Anyway. Found a guy, DOT certified, etc. Works for the Equitable gas insurance company specifically doing the warranty replacements, so hopefully itll work out. Hes doing it tomorrow too, which is clutch. Less than $1k quoted, but who knows.

For the last time. It's Duplicolor Truck Bedliner. Significantly different than 'rhinoliner'. If asked, I would gladly explain the difference and the 'method behind the madness'.

Having a fast car has nothing to do with it. And actually my car is slow because the clutch slips at 0.8 bar at peak torque (4000RPM) if ambient temp is below 60F on an ACT HD pressure plate on a 2.0L.

What college did you go to? I would've expected slightly more vigilance from an accredited institution.

Also, don't buy a Porsche because those idiots epoxy coolant fittings into manifolds with the assumption that their engineering calculations are spot on. Then, the engine heats up more than they thought it would and the epoxy disintegrates, and dumps hot coolant all over the apex of your favorite track.

Unless of course, you are in the majority portion of Porsche customers. Then, you have nothing to worry about.

Well let me retort. Your car is fast when it isn't broken. Did not imply that your dupli whatever it's called had any connection to how fast or slow your car is . If you are going to apply what appears to be bedliner material on a third of your car you should refrain from calling out someone for a grill. I definitely see the madness. I forget the method.

Fan now equals wind tunnel.

Hey everyone! Come to my new wind tunnel testing facility. I have a garage ,a bee smoker and a box fan. 1000 dollars an hour. PM for an appointment!

E thuggin like a mofo yo.

Disagreed. Because the grille was totally non-functional, while my bedliner material was totally functional.

Also, a wind tunnel uses a large fan. Do you disagree?

When did I say anything? In fact I went out of my way to not say anything... you must get all excited and wet when you see something to reply to, so much so that the blood flow decreases from your brain and you lose reading comprehension.

Why cant people understand that sometimes making someone like the appearance of something they own more a function?

No I don't. The more you compare a fan sitting on the floor of a garage to a wind tunnel the more comical you appear to be?

Pretty obvious your post was meant to rattle the new guy and nothing more .

Do you disagree?

I agree. I hear the Judges give extra points to older cars that are super clean since its harder to keep them that way but thats just a rumor...

By the way, if you actually want to win this year hire Morgan as your cleaning coach! LOL.
