    I love working down at the beach. I just need to figure out how to market there better... most are 2nd homes and don't get mail and/or people there all the time. Went up on the boardwalk and got pizza for lunch... just very chill. So I got my GTI registered and insured today.. went out to the store, the bank, another store, and another store. So all local places w/in 2 miles. But a lot of stop and go. My left foot is killing me from the clutch. The past two vehicals I've had were trucks and autos... haven't had a stick since my GTI back in 2000-2007 or something. But my feet are a lot worse then at that time. I never even thought this would be an issue. I'm gonna be so mad if it is.

    Does Homedepot rent gas grills? Like for a bbq?
  7. Just something else - make sure you let the client know the potential for issues. CYA.

    I like watching people play on twitch. The streams I watch are commercial type planes, so not much action besides taking off and landing. I think it would be fun to be in the control tower giving direction to all the pilots.

    2000 VW GTI - rain sensor

    I recently acquired a 2000 GTI and there it a rain sensor behind the rear view mirror which when it rains the windshield washers come on. Does putting a layer of film between the two effect the functionality of it? I want the rain sensor more then tint, but I also want the heat rejection on the windshield. Thx

    [quote Congrats on the new car [mention=177]Roach[/mention], how are you liking it so far? Thanks! So far I love it but I've only gone to the deli which is literally two doors down. It's not registered yet. [emoji16] Been cleaning it. Painting the emblems now. Once I get that done I'm gonna wash it again and wax it. [emoji106]

    The only group I really follow is the flat glass group. I wonder if that make a difference??? The others I'll look at if I'm bored.

    The headliner is coming down in two spots... by the doors. Not terrible... but I'm sure it's something that will need be be addressed at some point. The truck - the shop said it was probably the head gasket... which the oil looks like chocolate, so I'd tend to agree. They quoted me $1800 or more to fix that.. and there are other issues with the truck. Minor issue, but still. Just couldn't justify putting that much money in to it. (1999 Ranger w/ 272k miles) I paid $2500 for the GTI.. which the guy drove down to me from Long Island.. a 4.5-5 hr round trip, which honestly, I think the car was worth $2200... but saving that time and having to have a friend go with me - it was worth the extra couple bucks. We'll see. The one thing I've learned in life is that most decisions don't last forever... whether good or bad.. and life goes on. If this ends up being a poor decision.. it was only $2500.. which is what - tinting three houses? Not the end of the world. I try not to stress over stuff like this, because, historically, most choices I've made turn out to be horribly, horribly, unwise. So if it lasts a yr or two I'll be happy. I'm going to get AAA in case I should break down... Fortunately the truck never left me stranded, but after owning it for several years, I kindof got the feel for what was minor stuff and what was major, and didn't push it.

    Gave her a bath. It was dark by the time I was done so I'll do the interior tomorrow. Hopefully by mid-next week I'll be able to register it and get it on the road.
