Hah! no blood then the job ain't done right.
Oh you people are so old! Listen to the bunch of you whine!Hahahah! I'm starting to go there, too, Steve.
Just kidding.... My two crappy disks in my lower back have slowed me a bit too. I really know it when I try to lift a tire and get it up on the hooks on the wall. In my younger days I'd have done that subframe just for the fun of giving it a go. Now? Fuggetaboudit. Ain't gonna happen!
I bought a 1/2" cordless impact wrench this fall because doing the seasonal tire change outs with a standard tire iron was just not in the cards anymore. Two weeks of lower back pain in both the spring and fall of 2015 made that $200 price tag look really attractive!
And, I'm so glad I did it, too, because the front differential on my plow truck self-destructed this winter, so I tore the whole thing down in the driveway last month and put in a Detroit Locker along with replacing a host of other parts under the truck. The impact wrench was INVALUABLE on the project, which I completed without a single busted knuckle! Maybe not worth celebrating on most days, but this is my first significant auto project ever that I accomplished with no blood in the mix.
Older.... and wiser, too!
Good to see some old hands posting again, I was afraid these forums were getting deadly moribund.
Cheers to all Pat.
Well Steve that was just the day after I brought it home from the dealers, my cars do get dirty but not for long I hate a dirty car.
Finally I am able to at least find meet the members, why in hell does Edmund's keep mucking the site up. Why don't they leave well enough alone.
