  1. Yes. This is what I have:
  2. The turbo one will work just fine in an NA. Just ignore the oil cooler hookups.
  3. Volvo ones are about 80 bucks for the kit of 24 seals pn 272424
  4. Mine is still available PM'ed
  5. I have one in the garage but probably can't get to it right away. PM me if still looking.
  6. It's not new except to me but I have 6 struts to do in the next couple months and this will make it much easier. The tool lived in a local body shop and while it was well used it was also greased regularly and not abused. They upgraded to a larger one.
  7. The lawsuits I've been aware of are all ridiculous so far. But I agree with you it all has to play out to really be done, I just don't see it changing. Razor-thin though the margins are there are just too many blue states.
  8. LOL at the train. This one's finally over I think. No amount of fabrication turns this around. But McConnell is still the devil.
  9. It wasn't today, and my car is (always) dirty but, I recently installed a hitch on the S60R. Now I am not stuck using the beater wagon to move the bikes around.
  10. 2018 was the stock market's worst year since 1931. Does Dumpster still get credit? Or are you going to change your story to some other mindless, canned, crap.
  11. Put new struts, mounts and spring seats in the 95 this weekend. Bilstein TC and kept the original R springs.
  12. Factory collar or had you already done work on it?
  13. I was going to say the cabinets are nice but the garage is way too clean.
  14. There is also a Photobucket fixer plugin for Firefox, e.g. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/photobucket-fixer/. No, I don't think there is one for Safari.
  15. But c'mon, hopefully people don't really think school shootings are the only ones that count? As mentioned, the problem is gun violence. School shootings are a symptom. If you want to think about numbers of shootings look at something like http://www.gunviolencearchive.org. We are two months into 2018, and the USA is sitting at 9000 incidents, 2400 deaths, 4000 injuries. For more shooting rates fun facts consider https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2018/02/15/586014065/deaths-from-gun-violence-how-the-u-s-compares-to-the-rest-of-the-world . The good news is, the death ra
  16. Ummm hello, we're doing that right now. Fair enough on the first point. Common ground on the second, I agree.
  17. Even LEOs failed to respond properly this time, and I'm sure it's not the only time. Can we really expect "trained" personnel on site to do any better? More importantly, and I seldom say this but Che you are just plain wrong, dumping more weapons into the soup is not just wrong it is absurd. Regardless of who is carrying them. So let's see first we arm/protect/harden the schools, then maybe the next soft target so every public event (concerts, sports, parks, etc), then the next ... Feed the beast or starve it, which makes more sense? It's admirable to suggest ways to curb schoo
  18. Another GREAT day for the gun culture and assault weapons! Shoot 'em up, fellas!
  19. OK, so this is what gray looks like, we now have (1) regulating guns is pointless because people will always be able to get a gun if they really want one (3-D printing, internet, etc), but on the other hand (2) once we start regulating guns at all, before you know it no one will be able to get/have a gun (confiscation), and now we flip to (3) the big picture is that guns will never be taken away anyway, so why try? Based on 2 out of 3 (so far), I will infer that even you might agree that all things considered, no one is going to get their guns taken away by gun control. Welcome aboard, le
  20. So let's see, you first argue that regulating guns is pointless because people will always be able to get a gun if they really want one (3-D printing, internet, etc), then a few posts down you argue that once we start regulating guns at all, before you know it no one will be able to get/have a gun (confiscation). Since these arguments are contradictory, which one do you really believe? Both of them? Neither one? In reality, neither argument is the truth, both are shortsighted and even lazy. The color of truth is gray. Black and white is easy to talk about but it's not the real world
  21. It was a general comment motivated by your post, not a targeted reply, but evidently I wasn't paying enough attention. Apparently we elect our lawmakers so they can pray and express concern now and then, not to legislate; I'm a little grouchy right now.
  22. How long does it take to wound 550 with hammers? Even with a car? A lot longer than 10 minutes. If you can't stop all of the mass killings only some of them, then go ahead and enact changes to stop some of them. blah blah blah ... there are always retorts to why small steps don't fix everything, but of course they don't. It's a nasty fucking problem, there are no instant fixes, like any complex problem start with small steps. Like, don't eliminate restrictions on gun silencers. Don't walk around saying the ridiculous excess of guns is this country is not a problem, that has ONL
  23. Nice. I had a Turbo seat like that on a Nishiki International road bike in the 80s.
