  • Pfft! That's bullhockey. Says I got the badge in August 2014. Been coming here since some time in like 2001 or so. All these n00bs usurping mah thunder! GIT OFFA MAH LAWN!
  • I don't know where Taco Raceway Park is but your pictures sure look a hell of a lot like Atco Dragway in Atco, NJ.
  • Was this posted yet, 'cause I like it better than the original.
  • The wheels are unique, though. Came on no other Corvette and part of what makes it collectible. Take them off, fine, but don't get rid of them or you'll lose value in the vehicle.

  • Heat kills electronics. Worst place to put a TV. Hard pass.

  • Well, I got my Cabrio set in like February of 2016 so it's very likely that the offerings on the market changed in a year and a half compared to what I found 2.5 years ago.
  • I looked at Speed Queen a couple years ago when I was going to replace the washer and dryer I had. They were both from the early 90's so almost 30 years old. Dryer was electric. The problem with electric dryers is like electric water heaters, tho…
  • Way to lecture the guy and not answer his question, guys. OP, the crossovers do not look to be bi-ampable. The original dB series from many moons ago now did have bi-ampable crossovers. But that's neither here nor there. So if you want to do w…

  • Sorry, all I got right now is garage tunes. Everything else is currently in storage while I recover from moving to a new house.
  • I didn't say to use gloss black. Just black paint. I've heard the same about using a matte black paint. You can do that because all your shine is going to come from your clear coat anyway. But a gloss clearcoat is not going to be smooth enough on…

  • Didn't say it wasn't but lacquer and pianos have both been around much longer than polyester. So has shellac. Which is made from bugs.

  • Said my post was too long, imagine that. Here's the rest. Final coats of clearcoat. After everything has dried, you clean it throughly with a tack cloth. You layer your last and most important coat of clearcoat down and let it cure completely. Wh…

  • While it's not easy to do, don't let Jesse's "best left for a pro" discourage you from trying something hard. All those pros were rank amateurs at one point too. They came to be pros because they didn't listen to some curmudgeonly old pro tell them …

  • It's actually Giant Hogweed that is super toxic. Common Hogweed is relatively benign with only folks most sensitive to sunlight being susceptible to irritations from it. Giant Hogweed, on the other hand, is pretty toxic and while not really le…
  • Maybe.

  • Some of this non-"sissy gear", if you open it up, you'll find a PCB, reasonable sized transformers and such and a zinc plate stuck permanently to the case with mastic and sound damper all over the case. Why? Because people like you need someth…

  • I am unimpressed. My tractor is a true hot rod. Two years ago, it blew it's engine. I had to dig to find a new one that would fit the mounting pattern but I did. Old engine: 680cc's (.68L for you dang ferriners) New engine: 724cc's (.72…
  • Sticking a mower deck and bagger on a Honduh shifter cart doesn't a lawnmower make.
  • Nah, the one I already have works fine when the bar oiler isn't plugged up with pine sap and sawdust.
