    He is plenty happy where he is now. My garage is clean, so I no longer need his services. He was more trouble than he was worth anyway.

    Ding Pao was my little Indonesian laborer that was responsible for keeping my garage clean during the build. He lived in my basement and was paid a cool $.50/day to keep the garage in tip-top shape. He is the reason why the floor is spotless in so many of my pictures.

    Unfortunately, Ding started slacking off and I was forced to take pictures like these:

    Not only were his garage duties becoming sub-par, he was constantly getting stuck in my sump pump in the basement. Sure, I may have told him it was a water fountain, but he could have waited until the next rain to drink out of it instead of trying to sip water from the very bottom. I also caught him eating my dog's food numerous times. Needless to say, I had to let him go. Don't worry though, he is gainfully employed by my neighbor for a whopping $1.50 a day to keep his BMW clean. I can handle the garage cleanup from now on.

    So my OCD kicked in again, and I decided that I no longer liked all the red/blue AN fittings that I purchased for the car. Black fittings and silver lines would look much cleaner. That being said...I will be selling a bunch of brand new AN fittings from -6 up to -16.

    Well I figure that even though garden hose is roughly -10 AN size, it might be frowned upon at the tech inspection when used in conjunction with worm clamps. :shrug:

    Wishful thinking, maybe?

    You could even consider donating them to the needy cause and writing them off. It is tax day, ya know :stick:

    Oh I got the brake parts a while back. Works for me, thanks! :D

    FYI, oven cleaner removes the anodizing from the fittings and leaves them with a cool chrome finish. My opinion, keep the fittings, clean them with oven cleaner and get the russel black pro classic hose!

    Man, that's good to know. Too bad I already bought all the black fittings. I already cut all the stainless hose anyway too when I mocked everything up with the colored fittings. Any oxidation issues with the bare stripped fittings?
