The people who are so adamant about driving the speed limit out on the secondary streets and highways. But all of a sudden turn into F1 drivers flying through the neighborhood with kids out playing.

I think they practice that F1 style in crowded parking lots.

Ebay has sent me two notifications today, saying that my package will be delivered Monday. Tracking says that it is out for delivery right now.

Tracking is really screwed up right now! My last package got bounced around between 3 places, including my local post office first!, before they finally decided to deliver it 2 days late..

It is probably another account of the sellers, padding the bid numbers and price.

I see auctions end with like 30 bids, and then are re-listed shortly after.

Just let the overspray do its thing without masking. A quick rub down with Nitro on the outer body cleans all that up. :D

This polycarbonate is so old and weak id be scared to put anything on it. I was terrified pulling off the masking tape in fear the plastic would tear or crumble haha

Use the blue tape. It isn't as sticky as regular masking tape.
