Mesa Boogie DC-3 here. Unfortunately it needs service and I'm too lazy to drag it over to the guitar shop so I'm just using a Roland Cube.

You know you win at life (and mt.net) when someone is so butthurt they do that.

Mmm, well, I'd rather not say to save the staff headache.

Great thing is it is blindingly obvious. Ever so incredibly obvious, in fact. Offhand, I'd say that the person was just super-butthurt as to make it that obvious. Freakishly so, in fact, as it's the third time they've done this and they made it incredibly obvious as to who it really is.

Honestly, Vash, I don't think Pushy is like that. He may act like a douche sometimes, but he doesn't strike me as a raging vagina type.

(Edit) Okay, a lot of the time, but he doesn't strike me as that type of passive-aggressive raging vagina type.

pusha got me for -1 for making a smart-*** comment in his build thread, but I'd be surprised if he went to the trouble of doing a bunch of posts. Hard to look cool in your sockless penny loafers while you're nerd-raging on an internet forum.

In both cases, the head of the bolt is held firm by the area it nests into on the differential. Both bolts are supplied with a 14mm nut. The shoulder is a slide fit in the driveshaft and differential flange in the case of the 1.6 and the 1.8.

Same length under the head. 1.8 bolt has thicker head.

Huh, so maybe I AM retarded. That, or I should lay off the paint thinner.

I'll admit to having been to lazy to crawl under my car last night, and I forgot to check for the bag-o-bolts in my box-o-bolts.

Maybe I didn't use shouldered 10.9 hardware in the '92 after all...

California cracks me up everytime I come to travis... only here is where I see a prius try to pass me in the right lane and get caught behind a truck, then jump two lanes into the so called "car pool" lane, only to gain two cars ahead of me, then end up behind me when he exits.


Also, I didnt know my simple question (of which you gheys help me solve successfully), would cause such a conversation!! I feel spesheeeel. <3

Does the big black patch of exhaust-fluid mean I'm too rich at warm-up? I don't see how considering it's at 14.7:1 during warm-up, yet the factory computer never did this. Thoughts?

I occasionally browse around on facebook when I'm bored and drunk (as in now, for example.)

Just saw a picture and posting wherein the daughter of a girl I used to know in high school just got her first car.

This makes me feel old, and I don't like it.

Laundry sure beats eating out of a dumpster.

I'd rather eat out of a dumpster than eat laundry.

What? I don't know. Some car. It has wheels. The kind of car is irrelevant. What's important is that people who I went to school with are not allowed to have children who are of car-owning age. I'm not old enough for that yet (I think?)
