    Looking to buying a gun

    I would agree with Gadget but with one caveat - before you purchase your first firearm (or even shortly thereafter), go take a class locally that teaches you your legal rights and obligations as a firearms owner. And, the unfortunate thing is that your rights and obligations vary ***WIDELY***...

    3m paint restore kit?

    I've not used this particular kit in question, but 3M does make good finish care products (polishing compounds, etc). I've used some of their products without issue. There isn't anything in this kit from what I can tell that is magical or unusual, it's pretty much a kit made of up standard...

    Stock wheels - paint or possible photoshop

    Powdercoat, if done right, will be far superior in durability to painting. If you go the paint route, use a paint specially formulated for use on rims (there are a couple rattle can brands that sell rim paint) or if you have professional HVLP paint gear, use a good single-stage urethane like...

    Should i sell my MX-3?

    One thing to consider. I have a 2008 MazdaSpeed 3, comes from the factory with 263 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. But there is power limiting in the first two gears simply because it is, after all (like your MX-3), a FWD car. If you truly intend on getting 350hp out of that, keep in mind you'll...

    Too Far for Rattle Can?

    Just a word of caution. In terms of any paint (rattle can or otherwise), even if you find yourself able to get the paint to apply and adhere, don't be entirely surprised if the color doesn't match. Speedway Blue is a VERY finicky color to properly color match - even with the factory-fresh...

    Arizona Technical Help

    There's a pretty decent knowledge base about much of that stuff down here in Tucson. Two of our members were supercharged (both TRD though both also had a lot of URD stuff in them as well). I've done multiple BBK installs (and removals). Several of us have short shifters. I've also gotten into...

    how do a millionaire park his car in singapore?

    I used to live in Singapore. Parking is a premium due to lack of real estate over there. The only thing I question in that video is that car's tags don't look anything like typical Singapore registration plates.

    icy pearl xrunner

    Awesome job on the paint, man ! :top: Looks like the ranks of the pearl white XRunners is growing ! Pearl whites are great in person but, they just don't seem to "pop" the same way on media. The lighting has to be *JUST RIGHT* to get that pearl effect on media and it's a whole lot tougher to...
