FINALLY GOT THE STICKER!!!....OT

i finally got the inspection sticker [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] ........three tries later. first it was the windshield wiper blades and headlight/parking lamp switch....ok, $2 for cheapo blades that will crack and fade in 2 weeks like the $6 blades - done. only $9.97 for the headlight switch at O'Reilly's compared to $15 at autozone? nice...dash panel is dangling by the LED alarm indicator wire... no problem, i'll pick the switch up in 10 minutes - put the pieces together - done. take the truck in as soon as the last screw is tightened down.... no, the other guy didn't say anything about the air cleaner...not emissions legal? really....don't have the stock stuff either. <font color=blue>insert sad puppy dog eyes here: </font color=blue> [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] tubes? yeah, they're at home(see <font color=red>Air Intake Switch</font color=red> post)...no problem, they'll be on tonight and i'll see you in the morning [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] SCORE!! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: FINALLY GOT THE STICKER!!!....OT

Hey shorts, Massachusetts is one of the worst for stickers, they hate lifts and big tires, they check washer fluid to work, gas tank for pressure for leaks, clear tail lenses, licence plate trim rings if it covers part of the plate, tires sticking out past fenders, dark tint 35% legal and up and even hate lowered vehicles in which would be rejected. It goes on and on, just to pass the lift on my truck I have to put on 235's stock tires from a friend to get down to the 27" max height from the bottom of the door :-(...

Re: FINALLY GOT THE STICKER!!!....OT

well i was in the middle of the air intake swap and i hadn't put the tubing on the element housing yet. it didn't even cross my mind that it would be a problem. they guy said it just needed the tubes and it would pass. i also hadn't hooked up the vent tube(from the valve cover to the tbi extension ring). i have a K&N filter in the ram airbox setup.

wipers.....???...i know [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] it never rains down here anyway!!!!!!! but, i guess since one of the blades was actually peeling off and flapping in the wind, the effectiveness of that blade was severely compromised.. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] i think the only time i replace them is for inspection....if they catch it [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: FINALLY GOT THE STICKER!!!....OT

superswamper, man, that would kill me....too strict! here in tx, some places are pretty lenient and some are ballcrushers. i'm sure a lot has to do with who you know as far as shops and stuff. somehow, the guys at texaco are harder on my truck than they are on the '86 RC....now that thing is a nail biter when we take it in. i think they know that and cut us some slack [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Heh heh heh.....here in CA you can drive a completely unsafe, and lowered-to-the-ground or skyjacked up piece of crap AS LONG as it passes the smog test.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] It is a mystery to me that in the oppressive people's rebublic of Kalifornia that they have YET to get cranked up on a vheicle inspection program. If they did, though, about half the cars from EL-AYYYY would be too low.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Low, low, low RIDER!!!!

Re: FINALLY GOT THE STICKER!!!....OT

Phhhhhhaaaaaaaaa........emissions shmemishons...........inspection bobecktion......move to Michigan. There are no inspections, stickers, warrants of fitness, whatever. Your car could barely run, produce a noxious cloud of gas that renders people temporarily unconscious, and has so much rust 30% of the car is gone, and if you want to pay to register it, fine with the Government of Michigan.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] You are "expected" to keep things Federally legal (having a cat and all), but few do when they start building hot rods, muscle cars, 4x4's, etc. I figure as long as I meet the federal requirments, I'm golden.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] That's why I've been stationed in Cali for 3 years now, but kept my truck registered in Michigan.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
