    That's the "Welcome to the new R3VLimited Forum" thread which i'm already in.

    I'm looking for the *intro to new forum look thread* that he referenced. Hoping that thread has more useful info.

        Anybody had problems with the door hinge brake? My sheet metal ripped . I ordered a reinforcement plate and a new brake I hope this fixes it .

            I actually never heard of it either . But it made a dent from the inside on my door . It keeps your door from flying open

              yeah mines broken and my door is also dented. Its the lever looking hitting that keeps your door from swinging open.

              I was driving in San Pedro today and came across a auto X event I didn't know about. Some Porsche club, watched a new GT3rs bounce of the limiter for 20 seconds. Very cool

                My drivers side one broke a few years ago - ripped the sheet metal too, I wasn't able to fix it. Huge pain in the ass, couldn't even roll down my window. Ended up getting a new door.

                  Anyone know if there's a plate filler option for front euro bumpers? Seems like it would be relatively easy to produce something to replace the plate frame panel:

                          I'm going for a drive today above Malibu. A coworker is leaving CA but he hasn't been on any good roads while he's been here, so I'm taking him through there. Traffic will suck but it's my only free day :/

                            Get an early start and then detour into stunt road or something

                              Couldn't; I'm leaving Torrance now, at 6. Got a Boxster and an MR2 with me. Won't get up there until like 7:30. Whatever

                                Worked my ass off on my Datsun on Saturday and its amazing how bad places have become. Napa Autoparts is just as bad as AutoZone, O'Reillys, PepBoys, etc....

                                Then I needed some studs and tried two different hardware stores, both were terrible. I had good experience with Lincoln Hardware, in Venice so it looks like that will be my go-to from now on even though it will be a little bit of a drive from Inglewood.

                                I was really hoping to drive it to the Petersen Breakfast Club event yesterday, but Jay Leno wasnt there so it wasnt a total bummer. Talked to Matt Farah too, he's not as douchey as I thought he was
