Re: SERIOUSLY OT: Calling all chicks! IT'S PART 6!!

Heh, so I won a design contest in Switzerland back in like... March or so, and I thought it was just like... for recognition and stuff, I got featured in a trade magazine because of it. Anyway, yesterday I got an email from them like "oh sorry, we meant to contact you after the baselworld show but we had a lot of stuff going on at the office as soon as we returned, but we owe you prize money.

Nothing like unexpected money that you unexpected lol.

Since its unexpected you can send it my way.

I could use it for an unexpected surprise I ran into today in the attempts to resurrect my Stealth from the dead. I swear it started as a simple project that could have taken a mere few weeks, but I just kept taking stuff apart. Why do I keep doing this to myself?

Converted the civic to manual transmission... ordered some different wheels, to undo some of the stuff I've done that I don't like.... like the super wide wheels/tires and extreme negative camber. Might also be reinstalling power steering. One thing at a time though.

Sounds like the hatch I helped my brother de-rice. He got it in a trade. It sat way too low with way too much camber amongst a bunch of other stuff. I jacked the coilovers up to a normal height, set the camber to normal, and went through a lot of other stuff to make it not only drive normal, but look better.

In town it wasn't so bad, but I've since moved out of the Dallas area, and commute 130 miles a day. The negative camber makes it unruly on the highway, and I can't get any decent all season tires in a 205/50/15.

I actually got angry about how bad it drove, back in November, and bought a 2014 Acura ILX... good God, I love that car. But the lease is about to be up on my wife's car, so instead of getting another, she's going to drive the ILX and I'm going to bite the bullet and drive the Civic until I can either change jobs or open my own shop.

Thinking of opening your own place? I think I'm going to bite the bullet soon and go to a mechanic for the first time in my life. Need a new rear seal and axle bearings. The bearings arent hard, but I don't have a press and don't think its cost effective to buy one just for one thing. And rear seals are just no fun.

I think about it, but when I think about the extreme change in dynamics that's about to take place in the automotive industry, I realize I'd only have about 15 years to have my own repair business. So I rule it out.

I hate doing axle work. Gear oil is terrible. Stinks and hard to clean up.

God it smells awful.

This is my third year working for myself, and I'm just now starting to actually turn a profit, but I could still easily make more by working somewhere else. Once you run your own thing for a while its almost impossible to go back to work for somewhere else though. You really think the automotive industry will change that drastically over the next couple decades?
