Don't get me started. Pedestrians don't belong at portage and main. They want to use good design principles, then great. Focus them on the exchange, market square, graham mall, waterfront. Not on a huge roadway. You can imagine an old or disabled person saying "i'm allowed to cross" and can't make it half way without the lights changing. Nightmare.

« on: September 26, 2017, 10:45 AM »
Hey Guys,

I'm excited to let you know that I've finally opened my business, Next Level Escapes.

Our first room is The Saloon.

In the wild west, you must take back your town's stolen bank reserves before a high-noon standoff.

I'd really appreciate your support in spreading the word and coming out. You can like us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

And to top it off, I'd like to offer TTI peeps a 20% discount - just use discount code TOPTIER when making your booking!

I hope to see you there.

Is this because you're now running to work?

I think there is a law that, if you are in posession of a vehicle that hasn't been reported stolen or the like, and after a vin search and a set amount of time has passed, yes you can get ownership of it. I don't think it is 5 years. I think the idea is if you find a car in a field and there's no ownership info and you can't contact anyone, there is a mechanism for that. I think its much longer like 20 years though. But that is just pulling that thought out of thin air. YMMV

it's pronounced ":bump:"

It looks like you have a lot of heart in this car: It's great to see that you got it back. If you had a chance to just write it off and get another supra, it seems like you probably wouldn't have wanted to just get another one, so getting it back is great. Sucks to have more work, but you have it. Sending good vibes your way.

Decided to just order parts instead of taking it to a dealership. Picked up a throttle body, map and maf sensor for cheap off ebay, plopped it in and wooo boost again!

Anyone else feel disappointed at the cost vs actual show quality cars at Driven?

I don't know how 70% of the people thought their cars were show quality. So much bad paint and "paint it black and put it back" "builds". Felt like a meet not a show.

There were a small handful of really well done cars and a few nice dealer cars but for a $20 ticket to a car show it was pretty pathetic.
Wait, you're complaining about a $20 ticket?

Arranged for a towing company to take my car from the docks on Thursday so I could drive it home on Friday (cause the docks are closed Friday - Monday)... turns out someone at the shipping company or brokerage f'ed up the paperwork and just didn't call or email me, so I'm stuck in Vancouver getting a tan / sunburn for Canada day.

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
