Apparently it's on, but nobody is in the crowd. Man, the ads on this website are horrible now days. Probably why people left.

Ads are one thing. The crap all over this site is another. This site is why I installed ad block, because it was unusable with all the ad crap.

Igor may not like to see that, but its whatever. I'm one of the few mods still around and I still do my best to keep the spammers and bots away.

Well he'd be paying for less bandwidth if he actually fixed the double posting issue that has plagued the site for the the last 5+ years.

Wow, there's still life on the planet.

What's going on peoples?

I'm nearly out of the custom car racket. Only have one project car left, and am actually looking for a truck :loser: ... quit my technician job back in September and have been day trading the stock markets (boring as f*).

A little bit of life. I just got back into the EFs - bug bit me again apparently. Bought 2 EF sedans for cheap, going to spend some time getting them back to par.

Ask quick as I quit working on cars, I might be going back lol... interviewed with an independent Lexus/Toyota shop last week, because they have an opening and treat their techs really well, and I'm kinda bored sitting at home on the computer all day.

If that happens, I'll probably be back to upgrading my daily driver 98 Civic some more, to make it more comfortable than it is now. Suspension is a mess... poly bushings suck, and whats left of the rubber bushings are shot. Think the shocks are blown also. It's a mess

I seen a very clean 3rd gen the other day, made me really want to find a mint, pure stock 4th gen (if any still exist). In other news I almost bought a 05 Volvo V50 Station Wagon with a 6 speed manual the other day, only had 55k miles. But instead I bought equipment for my business. Adult life... mehhhh.

I've seen quite a few decent looking 4th gens on craigslist in the DFW area lately, but 0 in stock form.

If the price was good I'd buy one with a clean well done b16 swap, non turbo... and the smallest serving of rice possible.

close to the same here, my last honda was gone in 07. Though I still got to visit the 4g once in awhile before Ms Amy moved. Now I need to go visit her new place so I can visit it's remains (in her old SI lol)

Melt passed back in 2013 after having a Seizure while he was living in Colorado. RIP Melt, he was an interesting guy for sure :)

Yeah. It sucked when he passed away.



In other news, I had an idea for building some aluminum door panels for my Civic yesterday.... Bought another house in the DFW area, and should have my welder back up and running soon, and plan to get to work on that.

Back working on cars full time, at a different shop. Not to toot my own horn too much, but really starting to realize just how good a technician I am. Feeling like I should have opened my own shop, instead of wasting my time trading the stock market.

I ran up shop here for a few years, but scene got way too toxic, so took a couple years off cars, now I'm back with an EF sedan that probably needs too much work. But I'm 3D printing custom cup holders and stuff for the older cars that never had any. Wish we had this tech 20 years ago. I do miss doing mechanic work some days, but I think I enjoy my computer chair more. ha ha Definitely post some pictures of your door panels when you get them done.

Yeah, I'd never open a shop to do performance/custom work. The real money is in service and maintenance for normal people/cars. About the only nuts I ever run across who want custom, no expense spared work around here are Land Cruiser guys.... We just finished rebuilding an older Land Cruiser motor for a guy. He spent 10k without blinking.

Air-conditioning work is also extremely profitable here in Texas. I've already got 20 hours of a/c work lined up for Monday :iceslolan

Yeah, I agree, custom work is hard. It was fun, but people bitch a lot. Either at the time it takes, the money it costs, or that it's not perfect. Can't ever win.
