Damn this place is full of grumpy *** trolls. Personally I like the mod. Looks nice. I`ll probably end up going that route on mine too. I want my **** clean.

Big deal, that aint ****. Not EVERYONE is on a budget (read: "broke"). Besides I think I just **** out $11 worth of T-bell.

Go back to club retard. And I'm not broke, but I don't throw money away, either. CR is where they spend $110 for a shift **** that I replicated for less than 5 bucks. Or 11+ for about a buck worth of aluminum.

WTF washers....at least they were only 15 bucks...
I still say you should've saved the money and fixed the paint first...then when everything is all done and you have nothing else to do...buy the washers to compliment the rest of the body work.

Pic of my friends car with some titanium washers after he ran out other **** to do and too scared to boost it (closer to $150 for these though)

Ok, douche. $5.00 Aluminum ***** are good for one thing BURNT HANDS . UNLESS you live in Seattle were its cold as hell and rains 364 days a year. (Yes I have been there, and it is by NO MEANS a meth-free wonderland laden with hot chicks.)

By the way send us pics when you get done making those fender washers that are anodized and laser etched in your basement. There is no way you could ever do that for under $11 on any small scale. By the way, what are you Amish? Do you sew your own clothes too?

Not aluminum, but satin nickel plated steel, asshat. And aluminum washers, laser etched (free advertising) or not, they are still useless do-dads. Go fast or go chrome, as we used to say.

Go away, ricer.

Last time Go make an intro thread and then your welcome to speak your blind perceptions. Atleast the OP isn't all butthurt, and takes to criticism and ribbing exactly how we do it around here. You need to search a bit, cuz Rleete will be the least of your worries with that attitude. Let's just hope your profile and details are worthy of your screen name. Cheers!

Huh...

I thought maybe "fender washers" was a euphemism for something, or that maybe someone had figured out a cool, non-obvious use for fender washers in a power-adder application.

But no, turns out this is just a thread about paying $11 for a set of five anodized washers and bolts that serve no function other than to make your engine compartment look slightly gayer.

Fancy, useless bolts are for hardparking hipsters. The only good use for exotic hardware is for a rotating assembly, valvetrain and exhaust manifold/turbo componants.

Real men have working hands, with tough skin from doing real work...we don't notice when the shift **** gets hot from being in the sun.

Hey man, don't mind these bros. I like what you've done with the thing, now if only you could slam a few of those up your nose, I think you'll really have something going for you.

Here, I'll attach a diagram:

I would install these sick washers but mine are matched to my paint color

Maybe they would work well in my fender liners?

You fail. At everything. I would explain it but I only have one functioning hand, because the alligator that lives in that swamp your mom caalls a vag broke it. That and you wouldn't listen anyways.

You know, if the OP had made them, or even had a friend make them, I'd say cool. More power to ya if that's your thing. But in this case, they're no more intelligent than the fake scoops that kids stick on their cars to try to impress other kids. Or a chrome cover for the brake fluid reservoir a la M.net.

The shift **** in question was made for Long as a counter argument to the idjits buying them for over 100 bucks (and bragging) on CR. I did it to prove how badly they were being ripped off, and that with a bit of effort, they could also make one. The steel was free (scrap), it took a couple of hours of work, and it cost me a $5 bribe to get the plating guys to nickel flash it.

Any fool can go buy useless crap and stick it on a car, it does NOT make it "custom", it makes it trashy.
