      That sounds like a miserable guest room! OP, if you do this, do it right. That includes ditching the driveway.

      I've had full coverage on my '99 XJ for 12 years. With comprehensive, I replaced the windshield seven times. Thanks to an upright windscreen and Colorado winter gravel, five of those replacements...

      Shoe is like quarter round but taller and not as deep. It's like quarter oval. I personally don't like either, but I had some stuff significant gaps. Its very flexible since it's only about 3/4"...

      I like both! One thing to remember, especially on an older house. The floor will not be level and the wide baseboards will not flex to fit the floor gaps. You can remedy this with shoe or quarter...

      What is the point of this project? Not trying to be a jerk. Why go through the effort. If you keep, you have a bland e30 auto in good shape. If you sell, you break even after a ton of effort. Is it...

      To clarify what TurboMinivan said. Tue D35 is a weak axle, particularly the shafts. However, there are plenty of string c clip axles, including the ford 8.8. The problem with c clip axles is that...

      Looks like a nice stock TJ. I wouldn't worry too much about 31's on a D35 as long as you don't offroad much. A lot of people gamble with 33's on a D35 and some hold up remarkably. With that said, you...

      Great recommendations. Thank you!

      Thanks everyone else as well. I'm at Home Depot or Lowes several times per week it seems. They are never off the table and carry lots of extra stuff online.

      If you go with the heat route, nothing in the condo should be trashed. That assumes that the company lets you keep all your stuff inside. If you have to remove it, you can put it in a box truck and...

      I'm sure there are youtube videos on slab jacking. I saw the procedure on this old house. They drill a hole in the slab and shoot expanding foam under the slab. They use a meter to ensure that they...

      Almost 100 views and no other recommendations? Anyone? I found that build.com has a ton of lights. I think they own faucetsdirect.cim and a bunch of other store fronts.

      Well I see that it was taken down once again. I don't see what the big deal was. The stair molding looked like knotty pine, nothing special. I probably would have painted it also. If it was cherry,...

      Not sure about reconditioned tools, I don't see why not. They probably replace the brushes on the motor (only harbor freight includes spares :)), and give it a new battery.


      FWIW - I don't have a...

      Where do you get your remodel stuff?

      Hi Folks,

      I'd love to see a list of places online where you get your home remodel supplies. I'm thinking fixtures, lights, etc. I've had some good luck with a few places lately, but I'm still on...

      I spy lots of Ikea stuff. I have that exact vanity and sink in grey. I really like it. I have some creative ABS plumbing coming from the wall to the p-trap, as it's very tight with two full drawers....

      I say live in the car. However, remove the passenger seat. That will give you leg room for sleeping and more storage for stuff. Search the mk3 forums on how to remove the seat. It takes about two...

      Looks hacked, as expected... I would remove the tallest part of the trunk right where it splits, and keep the other three.

      FYI - if you decide to remove, you can take that entire tree and...

      My first thought was raised beds. You could even put a greenhouse on the slab, plus the beds.

      I did some research and it seems common to split off the existing external plumbing. A plumber would never do it and it wouldn't pass an inspection. I didn't pull a permit for this bathroom, but I...
