Default Re: The Offical Vent Thread.

First, KUDOS to the person who thought of this thread. I'll keep my venting as close to g/pg as possible.

OK Here we go.
#%@Y#^$*%$(@&!%#&*$*$&#^!!!
I ordered a pair of lighted dual sun visors from Heritage Auto Parts in Mobile Alabama, through their Ebay store. In their photos, the visors looked charcoal/dark gray. The description did not disclose the actual color of the product, but it did say "normal wear". They arrived, and I was glad to see they came very quickly, I took them out of the box, and found some greasy fingerprints on them along with what could be perceived as normal dirt, smoke, etc.. I noticed they sent only one pigtail with the pair, and both sides are lighted. I understand. They sent them under the assumption they were to be replacement parts for what ever Xploder the buyer bought them for, over them being an upgrade for another vehicle in the Ford Family of fine cars & trucks.

OK these little "darlings" need a simple cleaning. No problem so far. Upon cleaning, I notice a very small tear at the bottom of the left main visor. A tear of any size cannot be considered as normal wear to a sun visor. They flip up & down! TRIM YOU F'N nails if that was the case. It was easily fixed with about 1/2 drop of superglue, 2 flat toothpicks, and a little blending. (Almost invisible).

Now they are clean, dry, AND DARK GREEN!
It was not the cleaner, as the little plastic piece they clip into, as well as the lighted mirror doors are GREEN as well!

I guess Caveat Emptor, along with Good Ol' Mr. Murphy is going to preside over this.

I know of person who has a green interior, he's missing one of his visors, and may like the upgrade. Otherwise I am stuck with freakin' GREEN sun visors, or will have to search out a dark gray dye I can use without soaking the cardboard guts these things are made of.

**The Moral of the story**
Perhaps the 50 mile trip to the closest pick/pull-a-part (Junk Yard) in Louisville, Ky., will be better the headache derived from ordering stuff online.

----------

I do have a question....
Is this thread reserved only for Ranger Related Rants?

If u have an issue about another member. u need to consult a mod or the admin.

My poor coworker. He had no idea how to check his oil on his 2.3, nor does he understand what coolant does. An eight of an inch of his dipstick had oil on it. I guess it's time to educate him

Oh sweet baby Jesus. He then proceeded to pull the parking brake release, thinking it to be the hood latch. We barely stopped it from crashing into one of the theaters

Hmm...$6k Snap-On toolbox for $3k. Similar to this one just not as deep and dark silver trim
I almost made the deal, I just can't justify the cost. I have plenty of nice tools, but do they need a luxury condo to sleep in?

I think I'm going to get this one for under $600. I prefer the drawer setup anyway

----------

I currently have a Snap-On mobile cart FYI. I'm very familiar with the boxes

I hate when I order Motorcraft parts and take it to the Mom & Pop repair shop, they come out after taking your engine a part and tell you wrong part,Damn! So you have 2 choices, have them get a Chinese part and finish the job or put it back together, hope you get the correct Motorcraft part and another half a day wasted. I guess I need to slow down, wast another hour comparing part numbers. Damn,Damn,Damn!

This bitch on Facebook is posting about how against suicide she is and how she will be there for anyone who needs help.

BITCH you were the one who ruined my friends life.
You were the one who called the cops to the school and claimed he raped you in the bathroom.
You were the one that claimed he beat you.
You are the reason I spent a year keeping him from killing himself.
All the while HE was avoiding you, trying to move on and be done with you.
You are no hero, you are a villain who cares for only yourself.

call her out on her bull shit. My best friend went out with a girl for 3 years, moved in with her, got engaged to her and come to find she cheated on him 4 times and he was pretty fucked up about it for weeks. And her whole family was behind her saying he was an ass hole and basically made it out to him being the bad guy.
