    urg... help me with U.P.S.

    Jimbo: I shipped that Saleen Explorer hood from California to Virginia with ghetto boxes. I cut and taped a bunch of HD boxes together. I wrapped the hood in several layers of plastic, and lathered the bottom and sides in that expanding foam stuff. Y ou shoulda seen the Fed Ex driver that...

    17x8 or 17x9 for Autocross

    I dunno....... As Jimmie eludes to above, you kind of want to steer witht the throttle, but it's almost impossible to do with the Explorer at low speeds - not nearly enough horsepower. Depending on how it divides the torque - AWD might be the trick..... I had an AWD car once, and even with...

    17x8 or 17x9 for Autocross

    Hey bro, because I did this before you let me give you some tips. You should really try to get 18's if at all possible. Even if you get some crappy ones for the track use only (which is a good idea anyways). I had cobra R's (they rub in front without spacers) and Bridgestone HP's in 275/55/17's...

    Saleen Explorer

    What's really interesting is that you probably could not even have one now - even if you wanted to or was willing to pay the freight for a used one. They are not around enough. Take it from one who can not recreate a Saleen. I spent more on Saleen mods than most of you guys spent...

    Need some negotiation tips

    Private party sale? That's tough - PP's are too emotional - hard to get a good deal. Best car buying site in the world: I've beat this subject to death here before...just don't get emotional - it's just a vehicle.

    Thinking of joining the Army, and thoughts? suggestions?

    Army straightened my act out. Wife is an officer in the reserves. Get a good MOS (job) in writing, and get something that transfers to the outside world. Tank Turret repair or Petroleum specialist are not good moves in my opinion. Marines are a good option - if you wanna be in for life...

    What is your favorite cologne?

    Zulu master above me speaks truth - from experience. I like Hi-karate...when I'm out of that I use Janitor-in-a-drum. Rob's right, Speedstick deod/anitpersp in many of the fine flavors works well.

    Low Side A/C Port

    Refrigerants (12, 134a, 22, etc) do not get "used". They happilly go along in a cycle of condensing itno a liquid and evaporating back into a gas so long as they remin sealed and dry inside a refrigeration system. They are a blend of chemicals and do not wear out. You should never have to add...

    Priorities Jimmie..... If you dropped dead right now (god forbid) is anyone gonna say " he was a great worker" or "he did'nt put enuff time in at work, the slacker" ??? Nope.... You'd be laid off tomorrow if they needed to... You're too young to put yourself thru this gotta...

    Probably selling SPLAT

    I don't think you will ...... FYI - my wife has a VR6 Jettx GLX. Fun to drive, but we've def. had more visits to the dealer than I expected. If you're gonna keep it for a while, think about the extended warranty. Better yet - lease it and throw the keys back at them in 36 months... The...

    ATTN: San Diego, Ca people!!

    Get him the Sunday Brunch for 2 at the Hotel Del Coranado! More than you want to spend, but if he's a good friend, it's well worth it. The world-famous Crown-Coronet Room rivals the imagination. Whimsical crown-shaped chandeliers, designed by Wizard of Oz author L. Frank Baum, drop from...

    to join the army or not to?

    If you don't know what to do - do a 3 or 4 year enlistment - get a MOS (job classification) that you can use when you get out. I will go fast - believe me. I was the smartest thing I ever did and led me on my current career path.

    to join the army or not to?

    The person above me is partially correct - if you are honest, and tell the recruiter everything - minor stuff can be waived. If you lie and they find out, they will boot you. The intergity part of the post is BS. All of our United States Armed services have a high level of integrity, and...

    to join the army or not to?

    I'm biased: I did almost 5 years in the USA, and I met my (now) wife (she was enlisted also) while on ative duty stationed in Germany. She ended up staying in the reserves, went to ROTC on the GI bill at USC, got commissioned and officer and went "over 20" in January. I was a degenerate kid...

    I'm out - 4 years = E5-Army My wife is still in (reserves)= 03(E) Army. She did 10 yrs enlisted, and then got comissioned. Los Angeles area. She went over 20 in January, so she technically could retire. (She even has "veteran" plates on her car).
