wag, the ridges aren't even a factor, the projector housings stick out past the ones on the round opening, and the lower ones were all shiny as hell anyways so i doubt that was for glare reduction.

Not glare reduction, I mispoke. It helps to diffuse the light so its not a single beam but spreads it out so its not as noticeable.

Thats probably how hondas get stolen. Lol. Thieves look up the coordinates of where the photo was taken and steal it when no one is lookin.

Ultimately it drove me nuts and I got rid of them.

Brad, during spring break Ill have some free time to discuss the hub swap idea. Sending you a pm about it now but then its back to studying for physics. Physics was easy in HS but its been 5 years and this teacher is HORRIBLE imo. I feel completely lost all the time and have no idea what to do for like anything. I keep forgetting how to use stupid F=ma for the force equations. Fuuuuuuuuu
I love physics!
I sent you a pm back let me know what you've got in mind we could easily speed up the first half of the time line I was just trying to allow plenty of time to find good wheels and for you to make money to buy them

Yeah I loved physics in hs too. This teacher is just rediculous. I cant really keep up with him in class b/c he moves so fast. He wont do any examples of things with numbers, keeps everything as variables(which isnt that big of a deal). On our test i just took, i felt really good about everthing except the middle question which wanted us to relate everything in terms of m, g, and r. g rediculous. It also doesnt help that we are already a chapter ahead in class from this stuff so im kinda rusty. We did that problem on our last hw, but that was like 2 weeks ago, I forgot how I related every variable. W/e, it.
