Integra Rear Brakes - Any Tips?

I’m replacing the rear pads and rotors on a ‘00 Integra LS tomorrow morning - any pointers other than the caliper tool to turn in the pistons?

I Mean, is This Really a Bad Idea? I Mean, is This Really a Bad Idea?

$8,500 FOB for a 75k mile turbo Cosmo?

What are the chances that three vehicles in a row all have nails in their tires, when all the owners happen to be standing at/near the service counter? Dad took mom’s Land Cruiser in for service and they found a screw in one of the tires, along with two other customer vehicles. I’m wondering if some bored tech is…

Probably dumb to post this here, but my phone number is damn near identical to a police non-emergency number, and I get all sorts of voicemails about missing items, issues with relatives, and in one case a potential kidnapping. Yesterday I got two voicemails from a “congressman” in PA; an irate one about a welfare…

DB2 Goodness DB2 Goodness

ETA: Whoops! looks like I had a DB4 in there.

Given the current price trend on old VWs, this internet picture would go for $150,000 at auction, but I’m giving it to you for freesies. You’re welcome, unwashed masses of Oppositelock.

Had an interview this morning. I was amazing and they’re going to extend an offer to me. I should have some new digs in about a year. Drinks for everyone!

MRW no one is stirring shit or flagging comments so I have to do work instead of being a Mod.

Sitting at a Construction PM Conference

They’re playing Wham! over the stereo during lunch. That is all 

Jim Glickenhaus declined the Oppositelock membership I offered. I’m fine. I’m fine.

What do you Think? What do you Think?

I can’t tell if rally type wheels look dumb or not. Make my decisions for me, Oppo hive mind. These would be 19" (match existing), but I should probably also consider 18" wheels so I can find some damn tires for my car.

Ah. Shit. Ah. Shit.

12k miles on these garbage Dunlops, and I’ve managed to rip the sidewall off one. Good thing these are $250 each are you fucking kidding me!?

Pegging the WTF Meter Pegging the WTF Meter

Leaving work yesterday I saw a cargo bike for the first time, with two children riding up front and dad pedaling out back. Very odd looking.

Bad Opinion Time Bad Opinion Time

The new QX50 design works really well in person.

I will be officiating a wedding and was invited to the bachelor party, but would rather decline considering 1) I’m the officiant and 2) it seems lame as hell. The party will be a baseball game in the city and then “hitting the town”, which means walking around until we find a bar with 8 open seats or something. I need…

Pilot Update: Dead

A month ago my wife started her 2005 Honda Pilot and shot sparks out from under the driver-side front tire. I smelled smoke and told her to shut it off. Couple weeks later it’s dead, so a new starter and battery go it, and I promptly smoke the starter. The engine is seized. No clue how it happened. I haven’t seen any…

Caught an R32 in the wild at trivia night. Not shown: new awful yellow fog lights on my 6.
