How about a little teaser of my little project?! It's slow going, and has had it's trying times, but I'm getting there. Who would have thought it would take ALL EFFING MORNING to drill and tap TWO EFFING HOLES in the front spring perches?! Jeebus, it's like the pads are made of kryptonite or some ish!
Didn't get as far a I wanted to today, but it's on the ground and near its final height. Nothing's tight yet, and I've gotta do the steering and shocks and TC and....
But anyway, here she is....

The 31's look just a tad goofy, but I may end up living with it for a bit, we'll see.
Off to the pool!

Yep, looks awesome! We will likely do the Rango rather than paint it! It's cheaper, looks great, and is supposedly easy to peel off. Hopefully somebody sees it at the races and scoops it up! The plastidip seems like its starting to be all the rage now. I've seen beemers and caddys done up with it. It actually doesn't look too bad. I like the pearl white and the gunmetal gray that's out there.

A friend of my parents is looking for a honest, reasonably priced shop to recharge the 134a freon in her Nissan. Anyone have any suggestions?

From what I have seen they are all priced about the same just know how many pounds of freon your car holds before you take it and make shur they tell you how much they took out cause they charge by the pound and will always rip you off if you dont know

Model of safety and intelligence-taken last week sometime on I-15 NB, this Nissan pickup was towing this Jetta with a bumper-mounted hitch ball, with no safety chain, AND the car wasn't even secured to the trailer! So many DOT regulations broken and ignored here! You guessed the nationality! Lol

This is the stupid ish that gets people killed, or at least lowers tow rates! Rofl

Not sure what reasonably priced is around here, but the guys right across the parking lot from me just service my Jeep...I had .3 lbs, I think it require something like 1.5? They changed all the service port O-rings (common leaking points on Jeeps, and it's been working great for a couple weeks now. They charged me $150 out the door. In the past I've paid anywhere from $75-$150.
