      I have to take a CATIA test, so we'll see how that goes. I only have experience with SolidWorks.

      Wait, who is it that is doing the detailing? I need you to get in contact with me.. I have wetsanding and buffing left on my clearcoat, but my clearcoat went on a little harder than intended. I need help wetsanding/buffing the car down, and would be interested in buying/trading/bartering for your help!
      920-948-5020 Adam
      I'm hoping to have this done by Monday.. Painting a car is such a big task when nobody helps!

      Adam, I'll try giving you a call tonight or tomorrow. I'd love to help you out, but wetsanding and buffing is a lot of work. I'd estimate the job to take over 10 hours.
      To everyone else, I don't mind hanging out at gtg's and helping out dubbers from time to time, but I'd just like you all to understand that detailing, though I enjoy it, is my occupation. I cannot pay my electric bill or buy my necessary chemicals with a 12-pack. Just to use Adam's question above as an example... what is 10 hours of your time worth at your job? Now, if you're working part time... double it. That is what I typically expect for my time.
      I hate to crack the whip on hooking my friends up, because I'd really like to just get my name out there. But, I just want you guys to be aware.

      Todd, I totally understand and would still love your help. Let's work out a deal on how much it's going to cost me. I need this done and I'm worried I'm going to mess it up.

      Speaking of which....I may need to borrow it. The 6 needs brake pads all the way around.

      Well good luck - we could use acouple more dubbers up in the engineering department. I had a guy come up to me after lunch today, saying it "sounded like my engine was really struggling to idle..."

      Completely understandable.
      In my case - I'm not one to pay for a service I can perform myself. I'd rather opt to put the money towards my own steam cleaner (or, reupholster my pillars and headliner as planned).
      Nothing personal. I just don't shell cash for something I can do myself, and I can figure out pretty much anything.

      So in that case, my time is worth double Dick.
      I only say this for the people that may not understand the accounting of running your own businesses. I have to pay my own taxes, medicare, social security, etc... (all the stuff your employer takes out of your checks) not to mention insurance. So, when I say that I charge $50 per hour, that does not even close equal to what my 'income' would be. It's closer to $25 per hour, which I feel is perfectly reasonable for a skilled technical job.
      I wasn't trying to insult anyone saying that my time is worth more than yours. Just trying to enlight you guys on the difference between someone in college charging $100 cash for a side job detail and someone charging $200 that is insured, licensed, professional, and legal.
      Some proper page ownage:

      I don't take it personal. I'm not saying that I don't mind helping people out, I love sharing knowledge. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the steamer that I use, this one comes fairly recommended as a non-commercial model:
      SteamMax 1500 Watt
      These ones are more comparable to the commercial one I use:
      http://www.vaporsystems.com/
      If you would like me to take a crack at your A-pillars before you reupholster them, just let me know. I'll let you play around with the steamer yourself so you can further decide if you want one for yourself.

      Has anybody here used the DEI CAN1 can-bus interface for hooking up an alarm?
      I can't really find any info on it (tried google, the12volt, ect). DEI's site sucks, and the product details page for this particular item is broken (it pukes code).
      From what I gather, starting in 02 VW's and Audi's have a can-bus interface. 2 wires to tap for the alarm triggers and outputs, vs a sh-t load.
      I want to install my Viper 5900 in the 337 since I'm pulling it out of my CRV when I sell it. I'm redoing the stereo, and would dig the peace of mind (paging remotes kick butt).

      Edit - here's the description for it from an ebay auction...

      Compatible with the Factory Security and Convenience Functions, Other Fuctions Include: Lock and Unlock, Factory Alarm Arm and Disarm, Windows Open and Close, Sunroof Open and Close, Trunk Release, Driver s Priority Unlock, Headlights On/Off, Horn Honk, Parking Light Flash, Hazard Lights, Reverse Lights
      Provides Digital Communication Between Security System & Vehicle
      Compact Design, Easy to Mount
      Simple Programming, No Key Required for Operation
      Reads the Tach and Factory Alarm Status
      Comes with Universal Harness and T-Harness
      Plugs into Most Directed Systems with a 12-Pin Main Harness
      Works with Any Aftermarket Remote Start or Keyless Entry System
      Compatible with the Factory Anti-Theft System

      i was planning on paying you but would like to know how much you would charge to steam my engine bay. im guessing itll take maybe an hour or so... so at my job double an hours time would be hmm... $16.50. is $50 somewhere around what u would charge?

      Hmmmmmm, is that 10 hours on a saturday or on a sunday. My time would kill a motha f'er... Yeah it's tuff when you got mad people hittin ya up for favors. Sometimes it's good though because what they got you might need.

      Hey Todd!
      Tried calling you today, hope you can get in touch with me tonight. I'd like to pay you to help me some time before Sunday evening. I am willing to pay! I don't have much at the moment (switched to a new job, so I'm getting half paychecks from each which aren't as much as I'd usually get), but I'm willing to pay what I can to get this done. I just need my car done so I can drive to work on Monday morning and still have a job!
