You're starting to feel like Technologs/GHT/Chevyman

I'm not going to even bother giving you any of my sometimes helpful advice.
You've been here about 1/2 the time I've been, yet have nearly double the posts, that should say it all right there

/abandoningthread

The fact that people beat me to a meme or image macro that's appropriate shows what we feel about you and your contribution to the forum.

why comment to just run your mouth? Please explain that thought process to me! Its amazing how rude some of you are on here. I never have even spoken to you yet you feel so intrigued to treat me like [censored]. Why?

Hot [censored], that does look to be retail price for an Anchor mount from a brick & mortar parts store (AAP or AZ). I can't remember what we paid at the shop on our account, but it wasn't $120, I would ballpark our cost at $60-$70, but I can't remember for sure. Napa has it at $90 retail for a Balkamp.

Rock Auto has the same Anchor mount, same part # (3103) for $12.37. No mention of it being a closeout or anything.

That makes no sense.


IIRC, I paid something like $78.00 for OEM FWIW.

Yea, that's still expensive I'm not sure why it's so expensive. The sad part is the old one looks decent still but the new one made a world of difference. Usually a bad mount looks obvious but in this case that's not the case.

My whole take on this saga:
you had a bad dream about your saturn ECT going bad.

Then had this 13.2w light bulb(incandescent) go on over your head .. Hey I can invent a ECT problem on the focus so I'm magically "right" again.

I'm done with this thread. Feel free to post that invoice anytime and I'll admit I was 100% wrong about you.

Rand you waited a week and then come back to start [censored] again. You are a little child.You are sosorry excuse of a person. Inhave the invoice in her glove box but i dont feel inclined or obligated to show your stupid [censored]. We all know that if I posted it up you would just say its a fake blah blah blah. Especially since I could make one at school and you wouldn't know. It would be easy to make a fake and you know that which is why you bash me more if I did that. I have zero to prove to you so I am not concerned with showing you or "proving you wrong"
believe it or not sweet cheeks I don't wake up and wonder if the all mighty rand will give me his approval today. If I wanted a strange mans approval I could go on a million different dating websites and find a desperate man that could give his undying approval. But instead I come on an oil forum and there is creepy guy who stalks my posts and expects me to want his approval because I should prove something to him. Its flattering really but I think you need to grow up just a little. You just look like a desperate little boy who likes to cause uneeded amounts of drama. My guess is the drama tickles your fancy......I wouldn't be surprised!!

I suspect a fake invoice from your school would end up being painfully obvious in some way.

But I don't care.

Rand certainly hit the right button today. crackmeup

It wouldn't be obvious at all but that's not the point I shouldn't have to prove myself all the time. I just called it how i see it and that's how I see it.

LOL, dude, a fake warranty invoice from your school made by you would be glaringly obvious. No offense, but I can assure you many on this board would be able to spot it right away.

You realize I could take the Original invoice copy it onto computer and edit it thus adding in whatever I wanted in the same font they used and it would look 100% real. If you don't understand that then you are a bigger fool than you act on here . I'm not going to prove anything to anyone because I don't need to.

Didn't you say in another thread that you don't know how to use a laptop or something to that effect? What program would you use? Do tell!

Not convinced you can edit a scanned document well enough that it wouldn't look like an edited scanned document.

Not convinced part numbers would be totally correct form either (IE, not what's on Rock Auto).

Not convinced description of problem would make any kind of sense.

But since it's so easy, prove me wrong! I think a convincing fake that would fool anyone other than yourself might be more time consuming to create than you think. But like I said, I don't care. Just pointing out how ridiculous that claim sounded to me.

When you make claims that come across as kind of unbelievable, expect people to question them. wink

I use a tablet to get on here and own a laptop. So your info is false. Scanning a document onto a computer and editing it would be an original copy that was revised and would look brand new part number I have because they did replace it.....you act like it would be so difficult. The people on here are a special kind of stupid.

You use a tablet makes you wonder when you could take a photo of the invoice in 3 seconds and post it to shut me up, obviously its not that easy since you don't have one.
As far as you making a convincing fake that would be the day.

please don't jack my jaw

crackmeup crackmeup crackmeup

You have obviously never scanned and edited the text on a document in your life. I have done this for legitimate reasons many times, IE filling in forms and paperwork. You can tell what's the original scan and what's not pretty [censored] easily. Your description of "copy it on to computer...look 100% real" sounds like your knowledge of this is something you got from a movie. My compruter machine skillz aren't even good and I can tell you are full of it.

It's plainly obvious when a scanned document has had text added/modified unless someone modifies it in an image editing program to look like it's all part of the original scan. Using image editing software that would produce something convincing takes a lot of skill and practice that I doubt you have. Nor do I think you would pay for the programs capable of making something convincing, and I doubt your auto tech class provides a student license to use these types of programs for free.

Again, what programs would you use? Simple question if you know how to do this.

Based on what you have posted, it will be readily apparent right away if any invoices you do end up posting are real or not. But please, show us them mad compruter skillz...I really want to see them!

This is too much ridiculousness, but [censored] it is entertaining. crackmeup crackmeup crackmeup

FWIW, if you want everyone to take you seriously, the ridiculousness won't help with that.

I thought you used a phone to get on BITOG... not a tablet or laptop

I apologize I wasn't straight forward with the initial info given that is my fault I'm using my phone and hate typing long lengthy things on it. No excuse I should have given the full details. I was only wanting things i should mention to the dealer if need be or maybe a common issue for focuses.
I hope you all have a good night and hopefully tomorrow the dealer will have the info on the issue and I will report back. Take care everyone
