Wrap used to be cheap...now they're basically the same as paint.
It's insane how wrap shot up in price. It's why kids have jumped onto that plastidip train.
I hate that shit so much. Here's a nice painted surface, let's make it look like bedliner but without any of the resilience.

Yeah man. They are bad ass cars. I like your 911 a lot but this is in another league. You cross shopping with anything else or just going all in on the Macdonald? I’d probably just get the super car that I like the looks of the most. They will all blow you away anyway. Maybe one day I’ll own a 458 ...

:excited: I'm looking forward to your thoughts on them, especially compared to the 911. As a point of reference, not that you would be replacing the 911. I drove a 675 LT and rode in a 600LT. They are nothing like the 911, at all. They are insane. The only thing I don't like about them is getting i...

Right. Bonuses or raises or whatever should be both company performance based and individual performance based.
no room for bonuses. Too many execs travelling first class around the world to fire people.

So the redarc is an integrated solar charger and battery disconnect that can also accept a charge or current from the starter battery? That’s pretty cool. 2 pieces in one. Question.

I don’t understand why companies do this. Maybe they just dgaf about employee retention. I get it, on a bad year you cant spend money you dont have.

Anyone know how easily a JL door will ding/dent? The flat metal throws me off all the time with the way light hits it I think they’re dented but they’re not. Just wondering. For a friend.

Wrap is expensive as hell though and just a sticker, so it's easily damaged. More easily damaged than easily damaged paint :doomed: :dat: Wrap used to be cheap...now they're basically the same as paint. I mean I’d wrap a car at like $1k or so. But at over 3 grand that’s one expensive sticker.

Saw my first Gladiator yesterday... honestly, I think the ZR2 looks a lot better. I would just get a regular JL/JLU :doe: I agree. We went and drove a Ram 2500 Laramie yesterday and saw a pair of Gladiators at the dealer. I was not a fan and the wife said it was an abortion. :lol: I'd keep my ZR2 o...

The mix of hard lines with the Pagani Zonda cabin is really throwing me off. And the Camaro rear but why. But I like aspects of the exterior. The fighter jet air intake is cool.

No. I got a pretty nice bonus structure though. Zero equity.
well at least they did something to sweeten the pot.
Meh they upped it $5k. Hardly anything. But whatever this is not a place I will wrk the rest of my life anyway.

Trying to keep an open mind about this. It’s not what I want but I can do it well and re assess in a year. I’m not hearing back on dick from job searching.
did you get stock options?
