    This. Fuck HOA's. The last time I lived in a HOA, those fuckers use to relentlessly harass me. Things like if I didn't bring my garbage can in like 5 minutes after the truck picked up the trash, Even if we were working, and not home. We would get a nasty note, and threatened with fines if it happened again. If I cut my grass too long, they would loose their shit, If I cut it too short, More shit loosing. Another time, After a storm went though, my fence was almost totally knocked down. After the insurance came and did their thing, and I got paid, I started rebuilding the fence, the exact same style and materials. It took me about 3 weeks on my days off to get it all done. Literally 3 hours after I finished, I got a knock at my door, it was the bastard HOA president, telling me that I had to take the fence down, because I didn't get permission to build a new fence. Needless to say I told him to GTFO my property, and if he came back, I'd consider it a threat to my safety, and take appropriate actions. a week later I got served with lawsuit papers. Lucky the judge agreed that the fence was replaced with something that was identical to the old one, therefor didn't need permission, and threw out the suit.

    What really pissed me off was when they would hold a vote about something, then do the opposite of what we wanted. For instance, the HOA felt that we needed some kind of passive speed control. They put 2 different ideas up for a vote, One was some roundabouts, and Chicane, with flower beds and landscaping. The other idea was something the HOA President called "Mega speed bumps." Think Speed-bumps that were like 4"-6" tall, and like 2'-3' long. Literally everyone voted for the Roundabouts options, I saw the count. They needed a witness to the count, and it happened to be my turn. Bout 2 weeks later, The tally of votes, and the ballots magically came up missing, and about 2 weeks after that, they started putting in the speed-bumps.

    Glad I lost that place in the divorce. Fuck HOAs.

      Anyone local looking to swap to manual brakes? Ive got a Wilwood pedal set that came from the previous version of my project. Id prefer to sell locally before posting in the general for sale section. Comes with remote masters that are NOT correct for E30 manual brake swap, but they do me no good, so Im leaving them on. Also including a hardline in/out master I was using for hydraulic e-brake.

          That's a nightmare. Ours is a condo so there's a lot less to mess with - I don't have trash or a yard or really anything exterior to worry about, the only requirement is that if you have a non-running car it has to be parked in your reserved spot and if it's too ratty they'll ask you to put it under a cover.

          But that's all in the past! Went under contract Thursday night for a silly amount over asking. This market is fucking crazy.

                      Do it. You can fit in a smaller box that way. That's how my Recaros from Poland came. Should be pretty straightforward to disassemble.

                                Dun got muh brakes fixed thanks to zephyr. The bolts that hold the guide thingys to the piston half of the caliper came out. It damaged the back of my rimz a little bit but they should be fine.
