Awesome. I want to use that on my future house. I hate copper.

Do dual manifolds (hot and cold sides) so you never daisy chain any plumbing together, thus getting hot water to you faster.

They dont make extended lug nuts. They make open ended ones, or normal ones spline drive, and colored.

That's what I plan on for next house also. Pex and daisy chain so equal draw. Also tankless heater

I think the key here is to define what Sam wants.

These are proper racing extended wheel hardware: the longer studs make it easier to put spacers on and to start lug nuts for quicker tire changes at the track:


some people weren't willing to commit to that so then companies came up with these "extended" lug nuts to replicate what you see above:



then the scene kids got a hold of them and now they can be had in all sorts of trendy colors:



which goes back to the fact that if you build a clean racecar and then lower it a bit beyond race height you will have a show car too
but it doesn't work the other way round.
