You can get a lot more use out of them just by backing up your stuff, wiping the hdd clean, and re-installing the OS.

For those of you who are going to buy a solid state for your macbooks... check out OWC's extreme 6G SSDs... I've found that they are THE most efficient after a couple years of HARD use.

If I wanted to do that, wouldn't I just get a PC?

No, he has a crop body. So the 50mm on his camera isn't actually a 50 focal length. The 3m is more like a 50 on fullframe.

The 35 yes isn't the best indoor, you need something wider but it's great for snapping faces off indoors.

As for macs vs other companies/PC it's preference. Sorry but my computer is six years old and run just as fast if not faster than day one.

Thanks for clarifying! Those cameras are too far out of my price range, so I don't really read up on them. Did a LOT of reading before settling on the G12 though. I'm usually a Nikon guy, but the Canon just barely won out.

Kinda disappointed with the attachment options, though. My gf bought me an accessory kit with extension tube and all kinds of add-on lenses and filters, but the damn tube is in the way unless you zoom in. If you zoom in, the lens hits the filter. After seeing some of your pics, I feel like I need to play with the CP a bit more.

They're on an entire piece. They only come in the main BRZ colors of red, black, WRB and white. Check out the "BRZ Ts Parts" thread on FT86 in the BRZ General Forum.

I would gladly follow you on IG and allow you to follow me as long as you promise to keep language clean if you post comments on any of my pics. I got little kids and Christian families following me on there.

i've never been warned before, but yes i always keep it clean when my actually name is attached to an account, unlike here where the rules are made up and points don't matter kind of like "who's line"

Yup. Low volume car. They're not going to STI everything. It's gotta be "special".

I'm in this SUPER duper weird funk where I have all these pieces that I'm excited to order, but once I get them I'm just not that excited about them. It might just be that it's winter and getting someplace warm is a chore, although I have an entire warehouse at my disposal. It also might be that I've been house sitting on and off since November for one to two weeks at a time with barely a week off in between and I'm just out of my routine. I dunno. I'm hoping my big projects get underway in the next week or two and that'll spur me to get the little pieces put on. I mean, I even have heated blue convex mirrors that just snap on and I haven't done that! Just exhausted I guess.

Swapping the tips was a chore since I broke a bolt and couldn't get off the one that I did remove the bolt for, so pretty much everything feels more daunting in the winter. Soon enough you'll see some more substantial updates, I'm sure of it. Historically January and February are just blah months for Alaskans. Spring can't come soon enough!

So I tried editing a bit last night. Whatcha guys think? Here's my buddy's wife (who would kill me if she knew I was sharing these ).

Before


After


I figured since she hated her pale skin that I would warm it up a bit. I might have warmed a tad too much, but I was super tired and just settled on "good enough". I actually have the RAW of this image, too.

I have those convex mirrors too. Did you get them with the optional LED turn signal? They look great but my lord was it a PAIN in the ass to route the wires through the door.

I hear you though, I go through periods like that, but usually when I have a part in hand I have to install it immediately My girlfriend bought me JPM Coachworks Knee Pads and I got home, opened the box, and went outside to put them in

Yeah, turn signals. I already have LED turn signals on my mirror caps, so I doubt I'll install these signals. More bling factor.

You went OUTSIDE to install your knee pads?

Maybe it's because I am short, but what are the knee pads for?

I'm barely 5' 8" and my knees rest on the sides (as driver or passenger) of the center console at times. Otherwise the door stereo surround pads are just bling. They complete the interior a LOT, though.

Chano - I think that pic looks way better now. I agree that it may be *slightly* too warm in her face, but honestly a lot of it comes down to personal preference on what you think looks better lol. I think its great as is.

and LOL at the meme..

Starting to fall in love with this lens. STI tS part on the right, standard lowest trim piece on the left.

Plastidip would make my efforts to match the flat pieces a LOT easier!

Andrew, you're welcome.

I'm still on the fence about the tS pieces. I did the all black thing in my old STi. I kind of dig the silver accents for some reason, at least for now. idk, maybe i'm weird.
