I feel your pain on the cross country move to Vegas, we did it last year. I was worried about bringing the kids out here but the wife and kids ended up loving Vegas.

Just moved into a rented house a month ago. We used Zillow to find the place and it seemed like the best website. There are a lot of options in Aliante, it was just too far for us.

If you have kids I recommend doing some research on the schools you want them in then look for houses in those areas. We used a Realtor we found on craigslist and had them target those areas. It made finding a place much easier and the property owner pays the realtor so they are free for you to use.

Not that I would trust anyone to do body work in a parkling lot to begin with but I'm not familiar with this scam. How does it work?

Basically they fiddle with it and the second person gets your attention while his "partner" applies some sort of putty or filler over the dent. They tell you to wait 24hrs to take it off....you pay, they leave, you pull off filler next day......dent still there.

LOL!!, really? I was wondering why Jarod was just sitting watching instead of saving the guy. If he's going to believe in magic putty that removes dents I guess he has it coming.

It was a white chalk like stuff this time that was put on in a bunch of scibbles. Dude was putting all of his (fat) body weight into a pry bar on the sheet metal, then pounding it out with an itty bitty hammer like he was "massaging" the dent.

I didn't stop it because the guy will learn his lesson and no be so naive next time.

Maybe he would have learned and not been so naive had you told him....rather than watch him getting screwed?

Not everybody is as vehicle savvy as we are, and some people are more trusting. Still dont deserve to get screwed in my opinion.

whatever. I'm just sayin'

Right!? Bad karma, homie!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Anyone know off an auxiliary light housing that can be used as an off road light like a KC, but accepts the H4 type bulbs? Have an idea brewing...
Edit: oh, and inexpensive! Lol
