Wheels & Tires / So You Want To Know Where To Buy Tires?

Just did PMC Tire. Had comparable prices to the lowest I could find, and also had a promo for free delivery, saving about $80.

While hammers provide instant force, try something that provides constant force. Like a c-clamp or something. Whatever will fit. Then every little while tighten it a bit more and push the bolt out?

Hey everyone.

Could someone tell me what the bolt spacing is on the license plates for any JDM vehicle?    Need a center to center measurement if possible.

I know you need an accurate measurement, but ballpark is about 2cm wider total

Where are you going to be located?  I've yet to try one of these out, but they sound like a good time!

We will be off Provencher, in St. B. I'll make a post when we are getting closer to opening.

good points. i have yet to try an escape room so i don't have an opinion on existing quality
Yeah, the quality varies. The good ones are booked for a while, but they've also been open for a while. There are other ones that have opened, but quite a few aren't that great. As in buy some stuff from Value Village, put it in a room, call it a 'theme' and then call it a day.

If you wanted to try one, go to The Real Escape or Enigma Escapes. Then once we open come to mine.

And of course there will be TTI deals.

Sounds like a really cool and fun business, designing and making little secrets within the rooms could be cool, like pull on a book, a door pops open kinda stuff
Precisely that kind of stuff. Might need to pick the brains of some people who fabricate things ...

would have never guessed! good luck with it!

what will separate you from the ones that exist, or is the market getting bigger?
Well one thing to consider isn't just the number of companies, not just the number of rooms, but their quality as well. Also, you can really only do the same room once.

We have done many in the city, and we feel there is room for more high-end ones, so we hope to take it to the next level as much as possible.

Do you have a list of custom blizzards, off the menu stuff that people could order?

Like if I came by and asked for the "dano", would you then give me a large chocolate extreme bilzzard using the chocolate soft serve?

70 hours a week is perfect if you do 10 hours everyday. Only an extra 2 hours on top of a normal day.
I was more pointing out the irony of being your own boss so you don't have to take orders from the man.

But then at the same time often being a slave to your own business.

Not that there isn't a reward - I'll be in that boat too in a week.

The rating system is out of 5 correct? 5/5 obviously being in mint condition. I would probably accept something around 2, but that is just due to the overall price I want to spend on a replacement toy/autocross car. Not going to buy something that I am afraid to scratch up. Oh and HPDE will be a must.

I think they go higher but not much. I could be wrong but I think like 6 is brand new or something like that. I think they get automatically downgraded based on kms.

Was just a guess... also sometimes people decide to have other people do the work sometimes. Just because someone is able to do something doesn't mean they should / want to.

Im looking to safety my r32 and its been a very big hassle and when i finally found one place they basically just said some of my lights werent DOT does anyone have any suggestions to shops that they got their RHD cars saftied and might turn a blind eye or be a little lenient to some things. i read some reviews and on a post made on this website and saw some people say simcoe motors on notre dame or CT on kenaston if anyone has any reviews on those shops with RHD cars that would be helpful as well, thank you so much in advance
So for most of their life you needed to get something like accord headlights to make R32s legal because there was no North American equivalent for the R32.

I believe in the states, different states might have their own rules, but I'm pretty sure the national standard is that once the car is 25 years old it is exempt and you can use the oem headlights.

What year / how old is your r32?

I don't know of anyone who has tested it, but most of our car laws mimic those in the states. If it is 25 years old it might be exempt?

I think you're looking too much into it :lol:
Could be, but still seems like he'd want to have his car possibly by spring awakening, so that's my guess anyway :p
