  1. As per title, if anyone has looked into it, how much does cosmetic dental work generally cost? I know there are a few options.. I've got to thinking recently I wouldn't mind dropping a few k or even a little more for an awesome smile!
  2. just wondering how a vertex front bar looks on a dumped white s14 with luxury skirts and JDM rear bar .. have one lying around i picked up cheap and not liking the $400+ price tag on JDM front bars these days
  3. or an even cheaper option, pull out the dash cluster, open it up and put a piece of electrical tape over the airbag light in the back
  4. Hey Guys, Could I Have Your Opinion?

    driving into a open door does not do that kind of damage lol any kms on a 1989 silvia are probably going to be bullshit, so just go by the condition of the engine and body. If all the accident damage is repaired, chassis is straight and its running well, it seems like a fair price, but knock off $1k for the mismatched panels.
  5. Can anyone recommend a store for automotive paint supplies that has helpful staff and can match paint etc? Besides Autobarn.
  6. Wheel size ADVAN

    From memory stockies are something like 16x6.5+45, so they will sit about 25mm out more than stockies.. better than nothing if they are free, but I wouldn't pay for them.
  7. If you're worried just run the factory airbox. However, I don't think 99% of cops would care as long as its enclosed in a black box, they probably won't even know what they're looking at.
  8. Check my diet.

    While you're critiqueing his diet, what do you think of my diet? I'm 5'11, 80kg. Basically just looking to maintain my weight while I improve my strength for a more athletic upper body. I work in a professional environment so I want to maintain an athletic build as opposed to a larger build (so I look good in a shirt and tie ) I've also ordered some protein/creatine/fish oil which I'll get onto pre/post workout once it arrives. Yesterday: 7.00 am: rolled oats with approx a teaspoon of honey 10.00am: raw salmon 12.30pm: greek salad 3:00pm: more salmon and a can of tuna 7:00pm: subway chicken wrap Today: 7.00am: weetbix and milk 10.00am: leftover greek salad 12.30pm: subway chicken wrap 3.00pm: can of tuna 6.00pm: chicken breast and veggies
  9. Are the graphics on these games actually better? I read a review that said they are pretty much the same.. and as I already have them all I saw no point in buying this
  10. I had 17x9+22 all around at one stage on the s14 with 245 tyres and lipped guards. and they fit fine without any camber, a little sunken if anything. You can fit some pretty wide tyres on there.. only thing I would be concerned about is inner clearance on the rear rather than outer clearance, and I can't comment on that.
  11. Is it possible to just chop both sets of guards in half, swap them around and weld them back up? If that makes sense.
  12. Nismo ProTT recommended oil?

    For a stock diff just go a couple 1L bottles of valvoline or nulon LSD oil.. should be under $30 all up. I think its 80W-90 GL-5 from memory
  13. Matte Black Wide-body 180sx

    You don't need deep dish to have wide wheels. There are plenty of designs available in low offsets that don't involve deep dish, or you could just get some normal offset wheels that are really wide instead (like 11/12") you have the dream platform for sticking some fat wheels on there, don't waste it with some gay koyas!! (although that said the koyas do look pretty nice, i'm just exaggerating my point ) Sure you can just stick some fat spacers on there, but you're always better off getting wheels that fit without stupidly large spacers
  14. Using iPhone in US

    Haha I wasn't sure if you were serious so I googled it: http://www.techradar.com/news/mobile-computing/tablets/how-to-make-your-own-ipad-or-iphone-4-micro-sim-681020
  15. Tax deductible sponsorship?

    Here's how I see it.. I'm an accountant, but not a tax accountant so I'm no expert. Theres two ways you can do it A: Register your car under your company. Any expenses related to the car, such as servicing, maintenance, advertising stickers you claim as an expense. B: Have two seperate companies, any money you transfer from the real company to the racing company would be an expense for the real co. and income for the racing co. Then you claim all your car related expenses under the racing co. The amount you pay in 'sponsorship' would have to be equal to or greater than the expenses if you wanted to claim all the expenses. Either way you would effectively not pay tax on any car related costs, but scenario B probably looks a little better on the books.
  16. Matte Black Wide-body 180sx

    Says the guy with a hella flush silvia as his display pic.
  17. Matte Black Wide-body 180sx

    Looks sweet man but yeah.. needs wider wheels/lower offset or the wide body just looks silly. Some of these in 18x10.5+0 and 18x9.5+12 should fill out those guards and will only cost you around $2k.. will look 10 x better. http://www.shop.cart...ls-Var221MB.htm
  18. Using iPhone in US

    Hes not saying prepaids won't work, just that they aren't available in the extra small size iphone 4s require.
  19. is there much demand for accountants on sites etc? I always just assumed that all the accounting for the mining companies was done in the main cities if you dont mind me asking how much are you making? Well accountants can do a lot of things.. if you're a financial or tax accountant you wouldn't need to be on site, but I do project cost control and contract administration which is more about getting paid for the job and following your contractual obligations etc. Which is important on a big job. I work for a construction company not a mining company, but we only do mines. However mining companies have similar contract admin type roles and they pay a lot. I don't get paid any ridiculous amount as I've only been doing it about a year, I'm on about 60k base which turns into a bit over 100k with site bonuses if I were to spend the whole year on site. On my team however the person with 3 years experience is on 90k base, and my manager with about 5 years experience on 150k base, so theres a lot of potential earnings.. and mining companies will generally pay more than my company.
  20. New Tyres

    Don't know about their tyre prices, but not a fan of their rims. I do know your average tyre shop e.g. bob jane/goodyear charge a big markup on tyres, you're best off going to a wholesale or independent distributor.
  21. You're thinking of San Diego mate, its german for whales vagina
  22. Using iPhone in US

    Firstly, pretty sure you can use the iPhone to access wifi without a SIM.. I think thats what I did when I was over there. Secondly, if you get a US sim it should work fine with an unlocked iphone, just remember iphone 4 uses a microsim. I have no idea about plans but a couple of my friends got US prepaids and they worked fine. T Mobile seems to be one of the main mobile phone stores over there, you can check their website for pricing: http://www.t-mobile.com/
  23. +1 thats where ill be heading next year after UNI is completed, except not a shit kicker hopefully apply for a foreman, or leading hand position on the building site of things. How do you plan to go straight into a construction foreman position fresh out of uni? Do you have a lot of previous experience in construction? Ive had 3 years of carpentry experience, and 2 - going onto 3 years on site experience as a junior site manager... matter of fact on site right now... yes i got plenty of time on my hands... washed out. Ah ok. I'm on a site at the moment too haha, I work in mining construction. I thought you were expecting to go straight out of uni and into a foreman position with no experience What site you on ATM? Newcrest gold mine at Cadia NSW. haha thats ok, mate how did u get in that industry? only way im thinking is to apply on seek and whetever else and go from there. any shortcuts u may know of? I'm an accountant.. I just got a job with a big construction company straight out of uni as a graduate. Just apply direct to all the big construction companies rather than looking on seek, they all have their own in-house recruitment teams. The only real shortcut I know of is if you know someone who already works in the industry as a supervisor etc.

  25. s13. In it for the good times

    Oh noes, looks like your e-rep has been tarnished!
