      I took the airbag sticker off my passenger side mirror - I can still see its outline. Someday, when I have money burning a hole in my pocket, I'll pick a set of these up. I don't think the plastic...

      The biggest problem with a 2dr is getting in/out in parking lots - the longer doors can't open as wide, so that can make it hard. The way the newer seats flip forward makes access a lot easier. I'd...

      Can you put together a DIY or something (or did I miss it?) You replaced the turn signals in the headlights with driving lights? Is this some OEM pieces just fitting in, or did you rig something...

      What to get for my bday?

      It's a toss up currently between:
      - DA polisher setup
      - RossTech cable

      Budget is < $400 I think. I prefer to keep the drive train stock until it's out of warranty, so those mods are out (plus...

      Do you have a smaller unit for stuff like the A-pillar, or the front bumper? Or do you just do those by hand? Or does the big pad do OK there? The Rupes sure looks like a fantastic machine, just...

      Yeah, that's my problem. From looking at comparisons, it seems Rupes > Flex > PorterCable. But if I'm going to have only one, the ability to have different size pads is a bonus, and the PorterCable...

      Argh, I think I want a DA polisher. I have a crappy 10" buffer from Sears, but there seems to be so many choices, and I suck at making decisions. Rupes? Flex? PorterCable? I'm a total noob at...

      Washed it. Really should find something to condition the leather inside... But the outside looks nice again, though every time I wash it I discover new rock chips, etc.

      I believe if you hit the brakes, it will re-engage and try to save your bacon. That's all I've heard of.
