wtf is with Flyin Miata's shipping prices. $15 for a throttle adapter, 5 polyurethane exhaust mounts. I shipped a clutch that was in a box that was way too big for it for $20.

It's amazing that I am baffled by the simplest of car troubles. I've been bitching about electrical issues for a few months now. I thought I had checked everything thoroughly... it was the first goddamn thing I should have checked, the battery ground. The terminal was tight, but the little bracket that comes off of it, to which the ground wire is attached had worked itself loose, despite having a lock nut on it. I did check the terminal, but I had forgotten I had replaced it with that cheap two piece terminal. So no wonder my car was being crazy acting, the damn ground was loose and flopping around on the terminal. I should just turn in my tools. In my defense, we do have a tough battery to get to, jammed in that corner. I've been wanting to relocate it back up front. I have ample room where the washer res used to be, to put a battery. Would also shorten the wiring, since it would only have to go 2 or 3 feet instead of 10-12. Easier to work on too.

is asking for 2300 for my 96 lexus ES300 reasonable?

I think its time to cut away some cars, and I hate leather seats.

Pusha and I stayed busy the last two days. Him and his friend came down to stay in Big Pine for the Mini-Season. Normally I avoid it with a passion because I hate retard tourists, but how could I resist hanging with everyone's favorite Miami coke pusher? (not to mention I paid zero gas fees, etc..) Bully netting at 12am on the dot, 5 hours free diving during the day, more bully netting at night. ****.

Current Miata project. Beyond tired of dragging speed bumps and the front tires catching on the fender under full lock. Should be good for a 1/2"-5/8" lift on all 4 corners. Actual board is 5/16", and I figure the geometry would make that about doubled.

^^^ I think I still have a set of those, made from roughly the same material, lying around in a box somewhere.

Actually, I think someone else probably has them now. I can't remember who grabbed that box.

Anyway, could somebody please explain to me WTF a hispanic tomato is?

They have a fiesta in your mouth, vs normal tomatoes which are just regular awesome in your mouth.

Anybody know if a template exists for Miata top hats? I'm not feeling like spending more time in the humid heat with the millions of mosquito's in my yard than I have to. I can't recall if there is a limitation to the outer diameter of the top hats. Couldn't the spacer be slightly oversized without causing an issue? I have the centerline for stud spacing, just the rest of it. Or actually, just the inner diameter for the raised part of the mount. The outer diameter I can guess.

I found one over on M.net a few years back. No idea where, but I did find it with just a search.

If you have an older loved one that likes to collect stuff, get them to sort/clean it out before they die. Sorting through old watches sucks. I have no idea if they're just old junk, or actually worth anything.

Want this Saab so bad. Would make a fantastic daily driver. $100 for a rear sway bar, $50 for a Viggen IC, and $100 for an ECU reflash up to 240 HP.

1999 SAAB 93, 4cyl turbo, 5spd, 2dr combi, runs great @ 166k miles

Thanks for the kind words guys. lol

Yeah, not looking to get in a fistfight with her or anything. I just want her out so I can move on. Working 60-70 hours a week helps as well. When I get home so physically exhausted I'm not taking swings at inanimate objects either.

Now I'll have a big tit to cover in order to keep living here. Not to mention I have to buy roughly $4000-$5000 worth of **** and give her back her security deposit.

I've been debating buying land and starting to build something, but I'm not really at that point yet financially.

The move out date should be next weekend and I'm sure mommy, daddy and sisters will be here to help her and scold me. I'll make sure I'm not home that day. lol

you can buy the plastic gasket that goes up there pretty cheap I bet. otherwise, I'd say you're safe adding 1/4" around the holes and then measuring the outside of the top mounts and copying that with a 1/2" wall to the inside large bore. NA or NB are going to be similar but not the same.




edit: if I still have my little gasket, I'll measure it and post up.

Aside from a toaster over, a few dishes and cups, and a big, comfy chair, I'd be really curious to know how you need to spend $4-5k to replace objects which I presume she owned and is taking.

Protip:

If you work at a fast-food restaurant, do not take a picture of yourself placing your genitals onto the food and then post it on Facebook. Or, if a co-worker of yours is placing their genitals onto the food, do not take a picture of that and post it on-line either.

Just off the top of my head; Bedroom set (headboard & footboard, mattress, boxspring, dressers, nightstands, mirror, etc), living room set (couches, tables, etc), kitchen table & chairs, coffee pot, toaster, pots & pans, tableware & flatware and all those other kitchen accessories.

Sure I don't NEED to spend that much, but if I'm going to buy it I'm going to get nice ****. Thankfully, work is crazy busy right now and I'm making a good check.

If this was last year, I'd be all sorts of fucked. lol

No thanks. Used car or truck no problem. Used furniture (unless its antique), is another thing.

Srsly?

You need a headboard, footboard, dressers, nightstands, a living room set, kitchen table and chairs, etc.

Are you building a bachelor pad or a magazine article?
