2021.11.28 17:54 -MolonLabe- OEM Mazda 3 Glossy Black Trim Replacement
If you're like me and the fellas over at SavageGeese, you hate glossy piano black interior trim.
I had some on my 2018 Mazda 3 GT hatch and decided to get rid of it.
After much searching, I found that many people vinyl wrap their existing trim pieces or buy and stick eBay covers over them. Given the cost and potential QC/fitment issues with random Chinese manufacturers (as well as my inexperience and lack of confidence with vinyl wrap), I was hesitant to do anything.
Then, I came across TascaParts which offers factory OEM replacement parts. I found trim pieces of the textured faux-carbon fiber variety that I much prefer to the glossy black and ordered 4; one for each of the door trim panels around the window and lock controls. This trim was an option from the factory on some cars but the previous owner of mine didn't opt for it. I found replacement part numbers based on my VIN and country of manufacture. My car was built in Mexico instead of Japan and there are separate parts for cars built in either country. I'm not sure if this matters or not, but erred on the side of caution. Here are the SKUs for each of the 4 panels for my particular car: BJS7-68-4L1A-02, BJS7-68-4L6A-02, BJS7-68-5L1A-02 and BJS7-68-5L6A-02.
Expect an e-mail from their customer service as I received one because, technically, my VIN calls for the piano black trim and the carbon finish trim is a mismatch. Once you verify that you made the right selection, they'll proceed with the order.
I received and installed them which was pretty simple. After removing the little rubber pad in each of the doors at the base of the trims, I used a plastic pry tool to unhook the low end of each piece and then pried the rest of the way up using my fingers. From there, I pulled down a bit towards the back of the car as there's a clip at the top of each trim piece that slides up underneath the door panel towards the front of the car. Then (disconnect your battery before the entire process if you want to be extra careful, but I didn't personally feel the need to do this), I unplugged the switches and removed them with the black housing attached. Don't remove just the white switch, but unclip the whole black housing around the white switch, as well. You'll be inserting these into the new trim pieces before reinstallation. After that, I just plugged the switches back in, tested to verify function, and slotted the new trim into place. After accidentally breaking some of the brittle plastic tabs on the piano black trim pieces during removal, I stress that you use caution if you ever want to put them back. This made me extra happy that I didn't go the vinyl wrapping route, otherwise I'd have 2 new trim pieces anyway. Also, be careful removing the switch housings from the original trim, lest you break one of those tabs, as well.
And there we have it. OEM replacement trim for ~$65/shipped and about 30 minutes of installation.
I couldn't be happier with the results. Hope this helps some of you who are looking to do this same kinda thing!
And here are some obligatory pictures of the general process and results:

2021.11.28 17:54 MoFergany I want to make a discord bot that pulls from the SCP WIKI's website but the SCP files are quite inconsistent with their style so it will be hard for me to just web scrap them, any idea on how I might pull this off?
So I'm a discord bot developer and an SCP Foundation enthusiast and thought hey, why not make a bot to easily find info on any SCP or record from the website directly from discord? I started looking into it and I was immediately set off by how alot of the pages on the wiki are composed of different styles with different structures and use of web elements, their namings, and other things. Does anyone have any idea how I might be able to pull this off without putting every single SCP record onto a database by hand?

2021.11.28 17:54 Throwaway098128 I'm just the comic relief
We met in Freshman, back when i was sorta chubby. Back then, I thought she was flirting with me. Looking back she most likely thought I was funny, and cute in a comic relief sort of way. I lost alot of weight over the summer, and now I'd say I'm pretty skinny. She's complemented me a bit, but I doubt she sees me as anything of stubstance.

2021.11.28 17:54 vinnybag0donuts Building a PC for recording music. What's important to consider?
Ive been using an 03 Lenovo Thinkpad to record music for the past three years now and I'm looking to upgrade.
I've run into some latency issues and issues running multiple plugins at once. Also never seem to have enough gb's. Biggest complaint is that the playback for tracks will occasionally sound glitchy if im running too many vsts at once. It tends to make it extremely difficult to mix/master audio.
What would you say are the main parts to consider that'll have the largest impact on the recording process?
I've been told lots of ram and a good processor should be two primary considerations.
Also trying to do this on a bit of a budget(hard with prices being what they are now) but would appreciate any cheap workarounds.
Im about to upgrade a lot of the equipment i use to record but at the center of that is going to be the room I record in and the PC I use to record so I want to make sure these are given some careful attention.

2021.11.28 17:54 bigst4n Xbox split screen
Me and my girlfriend play split screen minecraft, she has an account and I just play as the guest account which is “her username(1). Normally we can just add guest and it will sign me back in, with my XP, inventory, where I was etc. but sometimes it doesn’t and spawns me in as a new player. Does anyone know how to stop this from happening? Thanks :)
