I associate Plastidip with ricers

My center console is scratched to shit thoguh. Might mess with it for that.

Spending money on aftermarket stuff for your car is so stupid. I just cannot understand it and I'm a car guy. Keep that shit clean and keep it mechanically sound. That's more impressive to me than dumb mods that cost hundreds of dollars just to hardly increase performance.

Big pull, solid bar path, but I catch it forward on toes. This tends to happen when I got heavy. Music is for the hook grip vibes.

a close miss man.

ever tried widening your receiving position a bit and pointing your feet not excessively outwards, seems like there's that tiny bit of not receiving as low as possible there.

If you cant understand dumping money into mods, you're not a car guy. I will go even further and say dumping money into mods and weightlifting are equally pointless endeavors. I.e. the exercise equivalent of "keepign it clean and mechanically sound" = doing light low impact cardio every day and eating right. Hobbies are hobbies... they're not supposed to be rational. Though I will say, modding cars is fucking expensive. I just spent $1K this weekend getting a brake upgrade done (needed to do my brakes anyway).

I think she was from arkansas though or like missouri.

So excite for the winter, bulking goal is 240lb 20%. Will be so ugly and fat.

 

Don't know where she's living, but she's from Texas and has lived in NYC for the last few years and Boston before that.

top lel, would have been hilarious if i was living with your friend. This ones kind of ug so its good your not friends with her. Ill still try hit it, she looks giving.


Got myself a tiny as fuck band for ab roll outs. Managed to do 40 from my knees, tried to do one standing and fell on my face. Bought no 2,3,4 bands progressed down till i could do 12 on a no 2, tried to do 1 standing and managed a negative, but couldn't come up. Now I can do 4-6 on a 1 band so I should be doing full standing ab roll outs soon. Abs looking pretty thick, this is so much more fun then countless sit ups and planks. Really feel it in my lower back and lats too. Also bought those olympic lifting straps where they are just a loop, how does anyone use these they're shit? I get bored at work and spend money.

I wish I knew how to play with a cars performance.

.... and the loooong journey begins. Congrats and Good Luck!

Don't give up lifting, you'll find that you need it in order to cope with all the stress. Srsly.

Without lifting and cooking stress would kill me.

Why? You do understand there's absolutely no point to this, right? Total waste of time.

I've been wanting to black out the badges and wheels on my car but I'm kind of skeptical about how easily it will come off - I have a full warranty and service package and there's some shit in there about additional paint working voiding the paint warranty, if it peels right off like advertise then it doesn't matter but if it doesn't come off that easy I don't want to void anything.

Debadge and powder coat your wheels. Although plastidip should do what you want.

urine idiot

Personally, I don't understand the guys that do nothing but wash and wax their cars and drive it to the show on Sundays. Boring. Where's the fun? Where's the joy of ownership? Where's personalizing the car to make it your own? I'm not saying your way is wrong, but different strokes for different folks, and you can't just wholly dismiss those that have different interests in the hobby. Your post is analogous to a body builder saying powerlifters are dumb.

Find a forum for your car, do some reading, get to work. It's not rocket surgery.

Debadge and powder coat would be ideal but apparently that has to be done by the dealer (just about all after market work has to be for performed by the dealer to keep the warranty). It's not a huge deal, it's just a Toyota Highlander. It would just look better with some shit blacked out.

No, it doesn't. That's illegal. If you powdercoat wheels, they could void warranty on the finish of your wheels I suppose, but when has that ever been someone's problem? Or just run the car till it's out of warranty and then do whatever you want.

Just reread, you said aftermarket... so yea usually that's not covered even if the dealer does it unless you use some upgrade specifically sanctioned by the manufacturer.

Yeah man I don't know. This is the first time I've had a new car and the first time I've had a warranty. I'm from Australia and am used to shit boxes that I can do whatever to. My first car was an 86 Ford Falcon with a different colour in every panel that I spray painted gold. So yeah. I just don't want to fuck up the warranty cos it's pretty awesome. My kid drew all over the back seats when my in laws were taking care of him and Toyota reupholstered everything for free.
