If you can do a painless wiring harness, you can do a stereo. They are about the same on a difficulty level.

Now look at this... Would you think I had to do such a detailed instruction sheet for that product? (btw, steps 1-3 were me being a complete smarta$$ since people couldn't figure out how to install it.)
461 times... I just watched it. I am suddenly worried that I am doing it wrong! LOL People are stupid.

We first didn't include instructions. Then I had just a simple sheet with like two steps. Then it turned into that one with me being a smartass which eventually ended up in my adding a youtube video cause I mean crap, how much more can I put in pictures and text on putting on your gas cap! How do these people actually operate the gas pump once they've got the cap off?

Three days to the manufacturer means nothing if the manufacturer is sending out nothing but standing orders. Because Wal-Mart didn't have a standing order they would be treated as a new order and would then be placed on the backorder list if my thinking is correct? Wal-Mart did not stop placing orders:

“That information is inaccurate,” said Ashley Hardie, a spokeswoman located at Walmart’s corporate headquarters in Bentonville, Ark.

WND then asked whether the retail chain is cutting back on orders of ammunition.

“No,” Hardie said. “We’re continuing to serve our customers as we have in the past.”

She said Walmart’s ammunition sales policy has not changed, even amid talk of gun-control legislation in Washington, D.C.
Winchester had a note on their press release site that claimed a lead time of approx six months for all new ammo orders but said that standing orders were still being sent out on time. That is no longer on their site though so they may be falling behind now.

Who knows, maybe Wal-Mart is lying (wouldn't be the first time) maybe Winchester is lying. All we really know is that a run on ammo is pretty stupid. It is not like they won't catch back up and ammo prices won't come back down.

You may have just stumbled onto the greatest problem that plagues our country. Think about it! If people can't figure out that they have to put gas in their cars, maybe they are calling dealerships because their new car broke down. In all actuality it is simply out of gas. If the dealership then sends out a tow truck, that costs money. Hook it up to the machine, more money. This might just fall under warranty work. Now multiply that times hundreds of thousands of cars and it turns into a big problem. Stupid people single handedly made GM go under!

My new truck doesn't have a gas cap. That may be an answer to your problem khris. Even manufacturers know people are so dumb they quit making gas caps.

This doesn't seem like the greatest idea in the world... Seems to me that it would make it pretty easy to **** up somones car really badly.

Yeah. It would probably be easier to understand if the pot were more along the lines of the ones i originally suggested to her, rather than that shape/color.

just a centerpiece/focal point. Either side of the pot is still as wide as a standard walk way so its nor cramped or anything walking by it.

its the same idea as a fountain or something in a court yard, she just ended up choosing a pot that was exactly what I originally envisioned.

LOL, yeah, Ford is going away from gas caps completely. They aren't just flip open type ones though, you have to release them from inside.

Just got my front end lift in and my damn hardline broke on the passenger side about 5" from the end where it meets the soft brake line. Pissed me off now i cant turn around my jeep so just more of a pain in the *** this has become. I hate rust with a passion. Had to cut both LCA bolts out. Gonna have to wait for my gf to get off work now to get a new line and find my brake line flare tool. Also found my kit came with new n2.0 front shocks but nitro white body rears. I called RC and they wont help me with out a invoice number. Pisses me off. I hope they ride ok??? :/
Ok rant off

Nothing is ever easy when working on older cars. Just think about how all of the northern folks feel when they have to work on their rust buckets.
