I don't get the point of this car, since at this rate it's about as big as a Vauxhall/Opel or a PSA hatch, and is less taut than the Mini it's supposed to be related to:

I might be slightly jealous if you cleaned your car. Otherwise, no.

Anyone want to help sort out some exterior lighting demons? Angels not working as drls since installing xenon kit. Still come on when I shut down the car...

I'm willing to pay for a$$istance. Kalim? Drewdown?

Background: Drew installed angels and they worked perfectly. SF semipros installed xenons for lowbeams, installed all necessary parts and they work fine, angels stopped working as drls.

I don't mess with electricals by nature but I want halos to light (especially now that I modded highbeam rings to look more like oems but making them smaller in circumference).

Any taker$? Theorists?

Thanks.

Not really. The annoying part is that the engine of the van in almost entirely under the dash of the car. The hood only opens up to show the fan shroud and the front of the engine.

Front-mid engine van, because race van.

Easily played. Continue to ingratiate yourself via harmless friendliness, discern availibility (existing non work bf?). Catalogue fan club based in likelihood of success (cheesy obvious annoying loser with no chance vs office gigolo). Tell guys with a real shot/game about any applicable ( or if necessary invented) bfs to steer them away. Use corny retards as conversation fodder with said hotness ("what a loser I can't believe how much he annoys you, sorry youre subjected to that, do you need me to say something?" "What a joke, nice goatee mr 1997") whilst making it clear that, while merely a nice caring harmless guy, you're still a fan ("you must be sort of used to being hit on all the time"). When all other admirers have been properly dissuaded or pilloried, and she's been convinced you're mr nice guy... Strike like an angry cobra and destroy destroy destroy.*

*If plan backfires in any way, or worse, she falls in love with you, you cannot escape fallout as she sits next to you at work.

Plan B: if you can't ever make the move despite establishing pseudo friendship (or she turns out to be a hopeless slut, and that doesn't lead you to propose) leverage relationship to garner favors with other co-workers (aka become an influential cockblocker and pimp her out for work contributions, promotions, snacks, thumbtacks, etc etc).

God gave you a gift by seating her near you, dont look that gift horse in the mouth.

What I meant was, if you don't fix this car and put it back together, then you REALLY wouldn't have a car.

lol, true.

Well, alternator is out already. Pretty simple affair.

Now I'm just thinking I kinda want to replace the whole alternator. It looks pretty old, and if the bearings are worn out, it makes me wonder what else is going to wear out next.
