i hope no one misunderstood me and thought i was saying that splitfires were
worth anything. i appologize if thats the way it sounded. i consider these
a "miracle in a bottle" type of product.

Thanks for all the advice everyone. I think I will go with a drop-in,
under-rail liner.

I have heard 100 explanations why splitfires don't work.
But that is the clearest yet.

to be a problem with many of the archive files and they
displayed blank pages. This how now been corrected. The

Subject: Man, I am the target

Do you all remember how I was upset about getting hit by a young
un-insured driver about three weeks ago?

Well, guess what. On my way to school today, I get rear ended again by
some guy in a Maxima.

That's two times in three weeks.

I want to say this now. I have been rear ended twice now with rear
impacts, and teh worst treatment that i got from it was a bunch of
import paint being scratched up and off of their car onto my lower
bumper mounting bolts. If ford doesn't scream quality, I wonder what
does. This is fantastic. I can take two impacts hard enough to knock my
into the intersection, and both fail to scratch the stock tube bumper.

It is still so amazing how many people still believe in the perceived
quality of foreign cars. Just blows my mind.

In both accidents, the front ends of the other people's cars were
severely mangled.
