Quoted from BOBCADE:

This is unreal, hope Stern figures it out.

All Stern seems to have figured out is people will keep spending more money on crappier made products.

So far it has served them well. Why would you expect them to change when people are still throwing their money at games nearly sight unseen?

Quoted from toyotaboy:

My boss talks about the wheel bearing on his tahoe going out about every 50k miles. I'm on my 2nd toyota, didn't have any issues like that.

Toyota is the official vehicle of Isis.

Serious fundamentalists wouldn't be caught dead driving any other brand.

My corolla was 9 years old, 190k miles, other than normal wear items the only issues it had was a misfiring cylinder and it burned a little oil (but ran fine, just didn't pass emissions). There are just some car companies that just don't have a clue how to build a good reliable car (Chrysler comes to mind).

I've replaced bearings in both Honda car and Van. The only real annoyance to me was replacing engine mounts in the Honda Odyssey. It's expensive and something I don't think of as wear and tear, but apparently it is a thing. In fact Toyota Camry is famous for having engine mounts go bad as well. Even worse, both Camry and Sienna models contemporary to my Hondas were famous for engine sludge issues. This is a nice resource to identify common issues particular to a vehicle model and year when purchasing used: http://www.carcomplaints.com/

I'm tearing down a 2.7l Tacoma with bad balance shaft bearing right now. The engine thats supposed to go 200k before its even broken in. Under 100k and had Mobil 1 change every 3-4k miles. Every company builds dogs.

Maybe the only buyer GM could find for all the left over 2009 Hummers was Isis.

I smell a big endorsement deal should GM ever start making them again...

#407 4 years ago

Unfortunately, they didn't buy them....

Off topic much?!

Maybe GM gave those Hummers to Isis for free.....diesel being $8 a gallon now that Syria got rid of all the subsidies.

#410 4 years ago

We gave the hummers to the Iraqis for nothing , they gave them to Isis when they ran.

At least we now know that the kids in the back of school buses are safe from being crushed.

by shipping hummers there, it's a way to make sure they run out of oil before we do. They will suck it down faster than anything else. Should send them some escalades too, and all our other shitty gas guzzlers.

A lot of hummers were illegally exported to China just before they went belly up. I know a guy...

So, I just tried Super 77 on the small corner that was peeling. I sprayed some into a paper cup to get an appreciable volume and then applied to the side of the back box with a q tip. I then smoothed the corner back in place. Unfortunately, after about an hour, the corner peels again, and the decal looks a little wavy in that place. I also tried this on a few of the edges that were peeling, but I can't get good adhesion. Any tips?

At this point, I think I'm going to ask Stern for new decals, but I'm really not sure I'm capable of applying them in a satisfactory way.

I would contact Stern, and see what other ideas exist in this forum and at Stern. Surely some kind of glue will have adequate properties for this task.

Well, I don't think Stern really has this down yet either, hence this thread

If you apply them dry using the decal's own glue, you shouldn't have any problem. Just make sure the surface is clean, and use 93% alcohol as the final step before applying the decal.

That's 196 proof. How much do you have to drink???

What about avoiding wrinkles? I'm just worried that I'm going to end up with something that looks worse than I already have.

Go slow and use one of these:

Actually, it's 186 proof - you might ask yourself the same question!

77 spray is for temporary adhesion, 90 spray is permanent. Try the 90, I use it in my woodworking business to very good results.
