1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I have a blacked out 2010 double rider, can anyone from the temple tell me what size snaps are on the collar? I need some to get some male ones for the fur collar...

    nah, we don't have any samples to sell at the moment actually. Maybe later.

    And hey look, another troll up there.

    I don't know, because we use colloquial names for all of those components. All you need to do is measure the diameter with the metric side of a ruler and google it, they are standardized things. From 2010 onward we used a nipple snap with a heavy receptor rather than the lighter wide mouth snaps we used on earlier models.

    I can get you as many of these as you need, facelift model too. They'd be RHD but maybe you could do a number job, or just get a dealer's license and drive it on dealer plates. :eek: I don't want any of your kids though.

    about $11K:

    Would oilcloth work for a spring trench/rain coat? I've read that, at one point, oilcloth was (maybe still is) used to make Duster coats.

    Yeah it will, that is the plan. Oiled cotton is not 100% waterproof but it's pretty close, so it will make a very fine wet weather garment. We're starting now, so that we time it right.

    MT cars are actually cheap here since nobody wants to buy one, kinda rare though. You have to be classified to drive a manual in Japan, it's a different driver's license test. I don't think many people get qualified for MT.

    that is ridiculous, what if you need to drive a MT in an emergency situation and you don't know how? (why would you not know how to drive a manual in the first place, it's so much fun)

    there aren't that many MT cars over here man, really none at all anymore. I'm sure there were a lot back in the old days, but from the little 660cc kei-cars up to the supercars nowadays, they're all automatics. Manuals are niche or hobby status at this point, and it's only a very few cars that you can even buy with a manual over here - just the cars that only ever came with manuals, like old sports specials basically. Tons of 911's in Tokyo, they're all automatics unless they're GT2/3's - regular Turbos would be Tiptronic here. Ferraris are all F1, Lambos are all automatic, BMW M cars are all DCT, the GT-R is an all-automatic affair now, can't even think of anything that would be new and surely a manual.

    I'm not even a car person but i don't see the point in a sports car that's auto, or even tiptronic (clutch being the...clutch).

    I love a good manual car, but it'd be pretty impossible to drive one here. Just too cramped, no real place to drive anyway - Tokyo traffic can be horrific, needless to say, and parking is comedy. You'd think cars can just hover around laterally, the way you see cars parked. In a city like this, cars are A to B and more about style and less about 0-60 and their quarter mile, haha. In that sense, a basic 911 C2 with a tiptronic or a BMW M3 with an SMG is actually a great Tokyo car - they are nice and compact for parking, fit two comfortably and can carry small cargo (they have delivery on anything one buys here) and you can squirt around town in them on rare occasions.

    My friend's Acura TL is 11 years old and has 120K miles on it. It's starting to croak. The mechanic explained that the repair costs for it warrants the purchase of a new car.

    He wants a car that can go from point A to point B reliably, looks decently presentable, and is as cheap as possible. He's considering to purchase a four-door 2006 Honda Civic with 9,100 miles, which is listed at $13K.

    Any insight/suggestions are appreciated.

    used car prices are :fu: these days. Seems like he is barking up the right tree, but I think Corollas are like the Miller Light to the Civic's Bud LIght and cost a little less, right? At least they used to be. A 2006 Civic with 9,100 miles though- that's old church lady status; my grandma has a 2005 or 2006 Civic with like, 10,000 miles on it too, she only ever drives to church. :lol:

    Not standard sizes bone stock, but you can wear standard sizes customized with added length for sure. Being skinny is not a problem.
