Moved to Oahu
 
So I've finally moved to Oahu to go to Manoa...

Being Big Island born, I'm a total Oahu noob. I usually hit this place up around 5 times a year but don't know the local secrets.

What's good for a poor college student to do?


Might be shipping my truck up later, but RECONS SUCH A BITCH!

Na Recon is easy. What are you worried about failing on it?

As long as you have your tires covered by something and your alignment is good your going to pass. They don't check tint anymore on trucks.

Just gonna have to change out my corners and blinkers... and my alignment isnt exactly to spec.

Parking around campus sucks too. just the little things are killing it

Yeah the blinker bull shit sucks man. But you could always borrow some from someone for a day and get the sticker. As for alignment its just $80 from Scotty's brake and alignment in Aiea and you'll be good to go. He's a chill dude and will set your truck right!

Kelson 08-19-2011 01:29 AM

ahh fuck recon. no need.


so you were one of the kids causing traffic at UH this week? lol

I kept my stock ones, gotta ship em over sometime- but I never changed UCA's so even with an alignment its not exactly to spec....a friend I have here told me they're bitches about that. Are they?

ah, you saw that before the edit haha

I looked at your build thread but only the earlier pics, didnt look at the last pages- You park up by laulima yeah?

KalamaKid 08-19-2011 01:41 AM

as long as you can get your alignment within the limits given from the factory you'll be good. You have a few degrees to play with.

Konaborne 08-19-2011 01:48 AM

my bro was moving in there so I was helping him move. I'm at lehua... :rain:


on the BI I never spotted another TW taco. Mission accomplished.

Kelson 08-19-2011 01:51 AM

nah lehua's pretty nice now. well compared to how ghetto it was before haha. there are actually a few TW members around UH.

Konaborne 08-19-2011 01:52 AM

I'll keep my eye out...


HOPEFULLY I'll have mine up here if I can score a permit, and actually go to a damn meet/cruise thing

Kelson 08-19-2011 01:59 AM

haha for sure. your best bet would be to find an upperclassman that doesn't drive and have them get a pass for you. Otherwise, if you have a job off campus you can apply for zone 22 (hawaiian studies) or usually there are permits available for everyone up at astronomy, but that's hella far.

Konaborne 08-19-2011 02:26 AM

I've been tryna get on my bros case to apply for one for me, but he's kinda a dick. hopefully...
