had some fun today

A while back I got some headlights off of here for a 100 bucks, which was a steal ....but the beams were all jacked and shot ever-which way but the correct way.
Today I decided to fix that by baking them and fixing them. The control arm/lever deal was completly off (dropped by USPS ) so I fixed them and will be painting them black later this week....

so FYI if your headlights dont work right....bake them and fixem before you trash them

just had to share

Can't see anyone trashing parts, unless they're insane. I keep every last bolt, lol.

Heres a story for you about people trashing parts, this almost made me cry!

My friend sold his honda civic si with fully built engine, and took his turbo off the car but he sold it to a dealer to get another car to rebuild. The car he sold had a carbon fiber hood, carbon fiber bumpers, carbon fiber side skirts, and carbon fiber wing. Nice car a lot of money in carbon...right over 1,500 if all bought new i dont know if it was or not.

We tried to track the car down to get the carbon off of it, since all my other friends have hondas and nice ones at that turbo and fully built b16s usually with one k20 so they are top of the line hondas they wanted the carbon couldnt find it at all, finally we saw it in a drive way with no carbon on it??? WTF? where did it go? we asked the owner of the house, he said he FOLDED IT ALL IN HALF AND THREW IT TO THE CURB!!!! They wanted to kill him like no joke KILL. He bought the car for his daughter and she didnt like the two different colors! Could have sold the carbon and easily got a 1000 for it esp. with our area here with nice civics.

Point of story people are stupid and throw away expensive parts!

God people are stupid
