      These. I don't need anything crazy like H&R and they're getting decent reviews. And for $600, they seem worth it.
      And my roommate plays that song. It's not really my favorite; I don't like small towns...

      V-Maxx... interesting. Never heard of 'em. Full coilover set for the NB is $600. That's about half of what I was planning on spending somewhere down the line. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks for the link!

      took 3 hours to scrape off the tint on the front windshield that the previous owner had put on i guess to help block out the sun but it just didnt look right so had to take it off

      Use rubbing alcohol, it will cut right through the glue thats left after you peel the tint off [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Would this harm the defroster lines? I need to take the tint off the hatch on the corrado, it's in terrible shape.

      Half way getting the adhesive off the back of mine with alcohol, I just started scraping the damn defroster lines off. I was getting pissed so my reason for doing it was "We are in freakin Georgia, I mean its not like its North Dakota or something."

      We just used alcohol, shop towels, and elbow grease. Alcohol won't harm the defroster lines. If you do FUBAR it theres some kind of pen you can use to go over them where you cut through. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Damn it. The weather, environment, and the speed I was going at did it to my car. One of my Kamei eyelids flew off....
      Guess it's time to take them off...
