What a nice looking car for a first car. Must make you feel pretty damn proud being your first car is a Porsche. Old or not.
I hope you create many fun memories in that. Don't sell it the minute you find something better, nothing's like your first car.

closest gym to me on my time i go is shapes nairn.   its $8 biweekly less, AND i dont have to cross the street

plus, at the 11am time, theres no wait for anything, just talent is lacking

That's a reason I switched gyms. All the strong people more or less left my gym and I was the strongest , and it wasn't motivating. I wanted to be around strong people . Not more or less recreational lifters

Extra 20 kilometers everytime I go to the gym, 6 days a week. Fuel costs me about $0.08/km, 6240 extra kilometers in a year, $499.20 is what it adds up to not to mention extra wear and tear on my vehicle and about 60 hours of driving over the year. If I was a single guy I'd probably be ok with it, but with a wife and kids I can use that $500 in a better way and spend a little more time at home.

I guess because like you said if you were single guy and which I am, I find that to be a bit silly.
I did switch to my current gym because of the time convenience along side it being a better facility. But I never complained about the distance and gas of my old gym.
I see your point though. It's what I thought of too switching to a closer gym

Yeah. I bought a month yesterday. Great facility, but I can see myself getting sick of the extra driving.

What extra driving? Lol . The 5 minute drive from town to the gym? I used to drive 20 minutes in the city to get to my old gym.

Looks 10x better! Now if you want to finish it off put a cover on it so it has a nice black border ;) haha ! But it looks good. Can't wait to see it one day in person

Bumpers look great. Not a fan of the license plate though. I'd either get a bracket or just take it off. You're barely in the city anyways so I doubt they'll notice

Have you weighed them? I think the rubber weights are more accurate than the medal . Obviously the metal feel heavier but i think it's more "close" to the number. Whereas the rubber is machined

as someone who has experimented over the course of 15 yrs and is an on again/off again "natty", i can agree.

its when you go from pushing 100lb dumbells for 5 or 6, then 5 weeks later its just part of the pyramid and you're doing 12+

if that stuff makes the gym 'fun again', why not?   i rarely take anything off the rack over 120, its like that point, **** gets heavy

I did 125s once. It wasn't really heavy more so scary/nerve wracking to get into position. Maybe cause the 125s were metal. The rubber 120s don't scare me at all and I'll set up more with ease.

You'll rarely see a guy on gear use over 100s. You'll see them use 30s for 200 reps

Yeah this time wasn't that bad, but a few weeks ago when I came back it was awful it took forever to do the front grille. You'll have to send me his number, or let me know where I can buy some!


PM sent!
He sells different sized bottles and all bottles come with a microfibre cloth to apply and wipe off. You won't be disappointed!

Went out to the cabin and am washing my car now, it's absolutely covered.

(Obviously apart from scrubbing hard)

My uncle sells a stuff called "BUG SLIDE"
You can put it on your vehicle and use it as a wax. Helps propel water bugs and dirt with ease. Bugs will wash off easy. I use it for my interior as well because it has UV protectant. Also any plastic trims keeps them a nice black but not shiny.

To answer your question about getting it off. Let's say you didn't put it on your car and now you have a **** load of bugs. Impossible right?
Not with this. Coat the bug covered area and let it soak for a few moments. And then wipe it off with EASE. He doesn't even do any advertising and people buy it left right and centre from word of mouth. It's the only thing bikers use to wax their motorcycle and keep bugs off and chrome shiny

I mean, those are only a 7" wide wheel. Not ideal to run a 12.5 on something lower than 8. Gives a funky wear pattern.

Oh dang. Really? People online said it's more dependant on the tire pressure. Also it can act like a bead lock because of the pressure. So the max would be 33x10.50? I guess there's no real point to lift then, because we can fit those stock. I wanted the lift and 12.50s.

2.5" T-bar crank starts to screw with your CV angles, from what I've read. Why not just get a super lift at that point?

I believe 2.5 is the max you can crank safely and that's why everyone says don't go more than that.
& because those are $1500USD plus shipping and other stuff. I could do everything I wanted for under $500 and have actually a bit more lift. Plus I have brand new HD bilstein shocks all around.
It would be the same set up as streetfocus I just don't know if my offset would work with 12.50 wide tires. Some people on the forms say it will. Others say it won't. Since he has the same truck I thought I'd ask.

What I was thinking of doing is 3inch body lift. 2-2.5 inch t bar crank and 2 inch AAL in the rear. Basically stock configuration but 5 inches higher or so.

Streetfocus; what offset of rims did you run on your truck? Can I fit 33x12.50x15 on the alcola rims with a 3inch body lift and t bar crank and AAL? some people say yes some say absolutely not. Since you did it I thought I'd ask you

What do y'all think of this? I like it. I can't tell how wide those tires are if they're 33x12.5 or 33x13.5? I like the push bar and the KC lights too. Thoughts?
