Don't use TNT, they f'd up the clear bra on one of my cars.
Try B&M on Airline. They do all of the Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti dealer work.
Stuff isn't cheap. $500-$700 for full front and hood coverage. You would probably have to plan on keeping the car for good to justify it. It is not a l...

Amazon is actually for it because they want a distribution center in every state eventually.

I disagree 100%.
This is a money grab, plain and simple.
Plenty of brick and mortar stores do well when they have a business model that works regardless of the sales tax.
I don't believe the state has a right to capitalize on every item that crosses into the state if it wasn't manufactured...

Last chance to oppose this legislation is your State Representative.
I am willing to bet not everybody files for sales and use tax on all online purchases (which in LA is already the law).
The fact is you will pay more for online purchases to get goods to your door than you probably do now.

Try Bozeman Distributors on Airline near Siegen. They sell Cat Pumps linked to Honda engines.

Don't think you'll hit your price point though. All depends how much you use it and how long you ...

Their standard contract typically only covers retreatment costs.
You can opt for an additional policy that also covers damages, for additional cost. Essentially it's insurance.

Many people still use manual J and properly done is still valid. I'll agree many also use more sophisticated programs.
Considering most ac companies come from the "square foot" school, manual J is a step up. A computer program is even better but it is all garbage in-garbage out unless done prop...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Buying a car with "light water damage"h - AndyCBR on 4/23/13 at 7:20 pm|
Not knowing the extent of the damage I would pass. The repair bills for all of the electronic crap/hidden corrosion/etc. can eat you alive and burn through that $8k savings in a heartbeat.
Additionally, trying to sell a car with salvage title and water damage down the road will prove difficult.
| O-T Lounge|| re: A/C experts - What size unit do I need for 1800 sqft house? - AndyCBR on 4/23/13 at 7:03 pm|
Have them do a Manual J load calculation. If they can't do it get another ac company. Anybody using square footage alone or other "rules of thumb" doesn't know jack.
Newer high seer ac units do not dehumidify as we'll (thanks EPA) so proper sizing is even more critical for a single speed system...

Depending on the grade of switch it is possible they can fail if they are in a high use location. The ones you but at home depot for a dollar will not last 30 years if used daily.
Replace with a premium grade switch and you should not have problems...

Takagi is a good brand.
There is some baggage with doing a retrofit which can lead to very high installation costs.
Many states require the unit to be located outside. Since a typical retrofit is replacing an attic or closet mounted water heater this can lead to a lot of piping by several tra...

Used to go to the slide in about 1979. As a kid it was fun. I remember they had those mats to slide on since it was a concrete water slide. If you got separated from the mat the joints in the concrete would tear your butt up.
