na its probably because it was under a shadow in the shelf so the darker light probably made it look a bit darker then it actually is.

yea i will admit I have to much. I even gave away a good bit and still got to much. I could probably get rid of alot of other things as I only use certain stuff. but then I might wanna play around so I keep it
yours is alot more organized then mine. I am not allowed to buy another cabinet. The woman says that means I will have more room to fill it up then

I need to take a break because I want to pick this up really bad

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A1 Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras 340-101
JESUS, in my mind i think to myself, do i want a camera lens....or do i want a Kimber Ultra Carry 2.....lol about the same price lol. I just noticed my Pete53 Sample in your pics lol.

I really want to upgrade my pressure washer, i like my karcher, its proven to be a good value, i think i paid 179.99. But i would like a little more PSI and GPM on a platform that is gonna last 10 years. I saw this today and thought of you Vader, hahaha, check it...

Untitled by ModdedMach, on Flickr

I think it was like 2700 PSI @ like 2.4 Gpm or something crazy like that for 290 bucks, not a bad price but too much for the car washing biz, im looking for like 2200psi @ 2+ Gpm. Im probably gonna try to sell my karcher for like 100 bucks or something. once i get a new one.

I just did a little research after you said that....wow, is that something youll need to worry about on your car vader? or is it a higher mileage issue? I dont know much about Subarus, just that they have a boxer engine and haul ass from a dig lol. If i lived in PA, id probably have a subaru as my daily and a mustang in the garage.

Your car is ****in sexy ill give you that, not a big spoiler fan, but in your case ill make an exception.

that is my biggest complaint about this car. I am worried about its reliability. but it seems to be more of an issue on teh STi then the WRX but still happens once in a while. People have blown them up at as low as 2000 miles bone stock. That is why i am so worried modding. Everyone says teh stock tune is soo awful and goes real lean under full boost so tuning would be helpful and safer for car. I just worry. I am going Stage 1 for Xmas so the car should be a good bit more fun and be as fast as my 10GT was with Stage 1

That would worry me too, you ever miss your mustang? I tried not owning a mustang, ****ing hated it. Lol

Sell that wrx and get a new 5.0, itll be faster and get better mpg than your subaru lol.

And no worries about breaking, mustangs are pretty stout on the inside
