Haha Gotcha. The recommended screws (from what I'm gathering) aren't threading into the holes. I have saved so much money on this unit that I would still come out ahead spending $40 to get the "correct" screws.

Might even be cheaper to send to Seattle and forward from there through my company, but would take longer...

No worries man.

WGMG: City of Anchorage's snow removal. They completely remove all of the snow, but leave the ice, so you have all kinds of people sliding through lights and turns, into the wrong lanes and what not.

^^ yah,

About as bad as I ever remember it being lately. I've been pulling some shifts on the ground units for my old company making some money for more go fast goodies while waiting to take my boards.

Anywho, those ambulances ride really rough and the road situation running back and forth from the airport to the hospitals in town has been a real mess. Try transporting someone on a back board or with a femur fracture across some of these intersections…yikes.

Or those that just can't follow simple traffic laws and rules.

People use the weather and road conditions as an excuse to break traffic laws. I say if you're one of those people There is no good reason for accidents to occur when it is obvious the roads suck. They only occur because of shear stupidity and arrogance.

And to be clear, this is not a result of my accident yesterday. This is how I have always felt.

All in favor of Red Light cameras...

I'll travel through a yellow turning red if its because the moron in front of me can't get going or wasn't paying attention and now I'm going to miss my turn. I'll run it and I don't care. Turn lights are timed and its not fair to the rest of us to miss the light because 1-2 people were not paying attention.

But the road clearing is stupid. I don't believe I have seen a plow or sand truck.

What GMG: Twits in pickups with open diffs that gas it at a light and spew gravel at anyone behind them. I saw this happen yesterday(thank goodness I wasn't directly behind her!). A blond girl in a truck texting just floored it spewing snow and gravel off one spinning tire.

Yeah, I just ordered some. Im hoping that's it. Conti said they were in "normal working order". I can understand why they said that, they're not as nit picky as I am around my car. I know when something is different, they are around different cars every day and wont see the difference.

That or they use them just because they're brighter. (The logic escapes me)

WGMG is an idiot dorking with their cell phone across the street, stopped at a stop sign, so you sit there thinking that he'll may just go after this car passes. Nope. Maybe the next one? Nope. After the 3rd or so missed opportunity I say screw it and go. I can see the driver sitting in the truck, illuminated by his cellphone screen.

WGMG: Awesome automatic seatbelts in my 22 year old car.

Well crap. The driver's side belt locked up in the track again. The damn seatbelt warning light on the dashboard stays lit and flashes all the time now. This is the 2nd time this year that I'll have to tear it apart and find a usable replacement. I really want a set of manual belts from a Canadian car so I can get rid of these wonderful things once and for all.

Yup, early 90's. The 1st gen Legacy and the SVX has them. They were a mandated active restraint system. Then came the advent of airbags.

I had those on my first Subaru 93 legacy, didn't have a problem like that at all. It was still under 10 years old then though.

That sucks. The Corrado's did that just a couple months ago (it's 21 years young). I wound up taking off the interior trim, disconnecting all sensors, power and removed the relay for the auto belts. since the cable had kinked and wasn't retracting correctly. I then manually moved the drivers side to the full back/locked position. With all connections and the main relay removed, the passenger side automatically went to the full back/locked position, so now I am running quasi manual belts.
