[QUOTE=Savage Octane;52610659]Speaking of motorcycles, here's the new Harley Fatboy. It's so fucking pretty and futuristic. [t]https://i.imgur.com/9zSbapy.jpg[/t][/QUOTE] Ergh Everything back from the bars is nice but that is one ugly headlight bezel, it doesn't look futuristic it just looks heavy :/
It's a Fatboy, it's supposed to. Harley actually claims is 35 lbs lighter than last year's Fatboy, with 11 more cubes!
[QUOTE=FordLord;52609995]So i need a bit of help. I need a way to add a clock to my car. There is none at all in it. I really want it to look OEM, or at least not out of place too badly. I see a lot of options, but they all look so cheesy and out of place. Any ideas? Anyone else in this spot?[/QUOTE] [url]https://www.amazon.com/Automotive-Replacement-Clock-Gauges/b?ie=UTF8&node=15735831[/url] Put it in a gauge pod.
[QUOTE=metallics;52610791]Ergh Everything back from the bars is nice but that is one ugly headlight bezel, it doesn't look futuristic it just looks heavy :/[/QUOTE] What?! the headlight is fucking amazing. like it feels retro but at the same time futuristic.
[QUOTE=Lerlth;52611991][url]https://www.amazon.com/Automotive-Replacement-Clock-Gauges/b?ie=UTF8&node=15735831[/url] Put it in a gauge pod.[/QUOTE] I've looked through them, most of them look like they would really stick out. I might end up getting an OEM clock and adding it in somewhere to try and make it look more oem.

It's a Celica iirc
Put on spoiler thing with led brake light :v: [t]https://puu.sh/xjiSu.png[/t]

[QUOTE=PandaJuggernaut;52605349]3.4 CuFt on a PSI platform 2 is gonna bang you just running 1200 to it to test or is that your final wattage if so what are ya running it off of? also that box is nice makes me smile when I see people put subs in a proper enclosure instead of whatever 20$ pawnshop box they can find[/QUOTE] Ah! Yeah the goal was to build this setup "for free" with stuff we had laying around. The whole build cost a set of 8ga ring terminals and a can of black spray paint. The rest was here. The amp is an MTX fellow that was questionably good in the basement. It turns out it has a hiccup sometimes and pops so he ordered a 1500w Skar amp for the setup. Overall though the setup is awesome! It plays really low and I was worried about porting into the cabin sounding weird, but it's just clean and low. The car flexes a ton, too, for just a basic system. Here's the box getting a covering with misc carpet and stuff we had laying around.

[QUOTE=Birdman101;52612465]I guess with victory gone, someone needs to supply the scifi cruiser market[/QUOTE] I still think it's a shame Victory went under. I want a High-Ball something fierce.
[QUOTE=Grenadiac;52612740]I still think it's a shame Victory went under. I want a High-Ball something fierce.[/QUOTE] Oh i totally agree, ive been drooling over victories since i accidentally went to okiboji during a victory rally. Fuckin beautiful bikes.

(pictures go here)[/QUOTE] Damn nice build for things you had laying around. I really like how clean the port is into the armrest. Skar makes good stuff is it a RP1500.1 or an SKv2-1500.1 also has that car had the big 3 done to it or no?

[QUOTE=Birdman101;52610509]What kind of pebble you got? I got a pebble time steel and its almost critical while riding my motorcycle.[/QUOTE] The OG Pebble classic. Had to fix the screen tearing flaw, but its otherwise been good for 3 years. Still holds charge for about a week.
[QUOTE=Demache;52613449]The OG Pebble classic. Had to fix the screen tearing flaw, but its otherwise been good for 3 years. Still holds charge for about a week.[/QUOTE] I gave my OG to my little brother when I got the time steel. It got the screen tearing and got shelved/lost somewhere
[QUOTE=Birdman101;52613980]I gave my OG to my little brother when I got the time steel. It got the screen tearing and got shelved/lost somewhere[/QUOTE] I was going to get Time 2 then the company essentially went under about the same time. No point in buying one at new prices with no support.
El' Volvo is starting to do some dumb shit. Trans is jumpy and trips over itself a bit (only happens after half an hour of run time, suspected bad fluid), radio / climate control is haunted, and the dash board as of late has contracted electrical gremlins from the haunted house known as the center console. The main one I'm worried about is the dash as I think my DIM has properly shit the bed, because two days ago my dash lit up like a christmas tree and all the gauges started summoning demons. Yesterday night the fucking message center starts working for like 2 minutes after being borked for eons to start telling me "OH HEY BTW YOUR SRS AIRBAG SYSTEM NEEDS ATTENTION ASAP!", which apparently translates to in most cases "yeah your dim is shot". I'm most worried about this because I think it might lead to the whole damn dash going kaput and if that happens or the airbag message keeps up (usually they do apparently), then the inspection nerds come next may certainly aren't going to let that slide. How expensive is this gonna be to fix? 2002 Volvo V70 turbo wagon, according to the 2006 version of the internet it was a 1k repair job and something tells me that depreciation doesn't effect repairs as much. edit: Obligatory electrical gremlin repair music: [video=youtube;hArkTJLjbUk]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hArkTJLjbUk[/video]
I realized the other day that Mr. Regular Car Reviews actually lives in PA and I might send him an email and see if he'd be interested in doing a review on my Magna, since he seems to be on a bike kick lately.
Small update on the racecar. I fitted all polyester parts. I've decided to just make everything fit right, then paint it while it's on the car. Things that still need to be painted -Front fenders -Doors -Trunk -Hood -Both Bumpers Did some wire/hose management [t]http://i.imgur.com/E9B2ZtP.jpg[/t] Lightweight steering column after removing a bunch of shit, and milling down the wheel adapter [t]http://i.imgur.com/50GsVIb.jpg[/t] Fitted the hood, drilled the spots for hood pins. Also properly fitted the polyester headlight covers [t]http://i.imgur.com/TKH3Yy3.jpg[/t] Finished the cooling system and expansion tank. Made a simple bracket to hold it. Still working on getting the wires properly tucked away! [t]http://i.imgur.com/2ZVR7Ap.jpg[/t] Fitment of the doors is "decent". As a coupe (2-door) doesn't have a window frame it's a fucking disaster trying to get a polyester door that has one, and fits right. It just doesn't work. So I've made the best of it but it still kinda sucks. But hey, the original doors weigh like 100 fucking lbs so I'm just fine with a semi decent fit. [t]http://i.imgur.com/71uCVVG.jpg[/t] Also rolled the fenders quite a bit. Still need to go further tho.... still thinking about cutting the entire sidepanel out and putting a polyester overfender on...(gives 3cm extra width) Doors still need door cards on the inside. [t]http://i.imgur.com/ozMscX9.jpg[/t] And some random shots [t]http://i.imgur.com/3YOuOhe.jpg[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/oHLklq0.jpg[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/gxYST6J.jpg[/t] [t]http://i.imgur.com/7jGZXuP.jpg[/t] If the images are too big, or if I should thumb them please say so.
What is that handle for on the center tunnel?
I use it to cut down the brake pressure to the rear wheels. Using that I can balance the braking power. Very useful for non-ABS racecars
Thumb them dude. Even if I am on a 4k screen, they'll be a pain to scroll past every time a new post comes in :v:
Thumbed them!

So a jaguar representative phoned me today They're opening a new dealer in richmond, and want to display my car as some sort of "evolution of the jaguar sedan" type thing, from the Mark V to the latest XJ. So basically i lend them the car for three days, it gets a free detailing job and i get a brand new jag as a loaner for a few days while my car gets ogled by a buncha rich people. Sounds good to me.
booked my bike learners test for thursday-friday $430 spent to book it, no backing out now
Ahhhh my bumper just arrived it looks fucking great. Here's a sneak peak! [img]http://i.imgur.com/wF1lxUC.jpg[/img] [img]http://i.imgur.com/c1ong5M.jpg[/img]
[QUOTE=Strontboer;52621742]Ahhhh my bumper just arrived it looks fucking great. Here's a sneak peak! [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ej4INcq.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] The stock chrome that comes on e36/46 kidney grilles drives me insane since it always gives the optical illusion that one is larger than the other. Always end up painting them black.
