    R parts compatibility questions

    It's plastic either way, it's just black textured unpainted plastic instead of body color painted plastic. Some people prefer the black textured trim.

    Koni STR.T or Sachs Struts w/ Nivomat Rear

    Yeah, the nivo springs are not intended to hold the whole weight of the vehicle, they're just helpers.

    R parts compatibility questions

    1. Yes, they swap right on. Here's a before/after: https://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?144126-My-Car-from-when-I-first-bought-it-3-yrs-ago-an-the-stage-it-currently-at. 2. Yes, you can can just swap the coolant pipe too and all will be fine. 3. Grab the whole brake kit, calipers, pads, rotors, hoses, errethang. Get the other R bits, intake, intercooler piping, etc. Interior if you can and it's in good shape.

    Ditch Nivos, install the S70 AWD non-Nivo matching shocks and springs. Do not mix Nivo helper springs and non-Nivo shocks, you will have a bad time.

    No... they could both me military, but a military 30.06 wouldn't have a NATO or other headstamp to tell you that.

    Only one of those two could have a NATO headstamp, 30.06 was never adopted by NATO...

    They're only "worth" that much because of the '86 MG ban which was slipped in to an otherwise ok bill by one congressman at the last minute with no debate. It will be repealed sooner or later, they'll go back to being "just" NFA items (huge pain in the dick to transfer, tons of paperwork and special rules) and worth no more than a nice AR-15. Full auto is overrated anyway.

    2016 Presidential Campaign

    Bernie can do it. There hasn't been an honest populist candidate in a long time and it's what almost everyone is looking for, his rallies are breaking records, he's starting to pass Hillary already just from people hearing about him. Hell, Wil Wheaton endorsed him.

    I just got tired of dealing with cheap cases, makes tinkering around as often as I do a pain in the ass. Figured I'd get something that's sturdy and modular. All the external panels just pop off for access and the frame underneath is bolted together rather than riveted like most cases, so it can be torn down or have individual pieces replaced as needed. I also didn't pay retail.
