    Yeah, not a fan. He's apparently tired of them too, but I'm not sure what about them he's tired of and if he plans to do a similar thing with the new ones...they're bleh. These cars don't look right...

    This is my 4th time doing this (84 x2, 85, now 83) and I hate it the same or more with each additional time I do it. What a terrible, antiquated design. Old sealing tech was just...bad.
