Looks to me to be sour grapes from a rich old bastard. Didn't get his way, so now he's being a douche.

My boss was in a pissy mood today so when she left she floored it out of the parking lot in her Bentley Continental GT roadster. Holy **** that thing sounded amazing.

What is it about shitty coilovers that makes people so damn stupid? There are threads running on both m.net and CR that make my skin crawl over the level of absurdity.

I am going to pretend she looks like Melissa Mayer in her Vogue layout.



Even if it's not true, please do not dispute the imagery.

I just trapped my multimeter in the garage behind car parts. I need it to test the MS. First world problems.

I get up early for few things. This is one of them. Stephens Gap, here I come! Break in that new rope and my new suit. Should be raining too, so nice water features, and good photography. Have my case and all of my gear ready to go with me.

Oh man -- we lived in Kentucky for 4 years when I was a kid and we would make an annual trip to Mammoth Cave. I loved that. I've been trying to find some relatively local outdoor or natural sites that would make fun day trips, but there's not much in Mississippi. The Petrified Forest is fun but doesn't compare to a good cave.

Yeah. Unfortunately you are about 300 miles too far west for caving. I'm still almost 2 hours from caving territory, but once you hit extreme north Alabama, you have over 20,000 caves to choose from within a few hours drive. And as I should have expected, my friend backed out yet again. We have been planning a caving or pit trip for over 6 months now and have yet to go. He is the one that actually got me back into it after years of being away, and now that I am ready to go and explore, he always backs out. Guess it's time to find other people to go with. Today was a ******* perfect day too. Upper 70's, showers and a good nights sleep. ****.

I'm so glad after I finish these fuel lines I will never again have to touch this crap. This is without a doubt my least favorite area of the car to work on.

Yus. Getting the stock fuel lines at the pump out were a nightmare. If there is an easy way to do it, I didn't find it. Tried pulling from the top, pulling from the bottom. Ended up just brute forcing it to bend to my will.

AN lines are so much easier, just have to mount them now and I'll never touch them again.

Send me your parts list. I've been looking all over and I still don't get it. 5/16 tube nuts, -6 lines?

You replaced the lines from pump to filter too?

How does that deal with the hard lines in the engine bay?
