working on the front suspension and trying to unload the torsion bars.... well after unloading them the unloading tool slipped and hit me in the eye socket... its probably a good 5-10lb tool and dropped about a foot


Owww! My friend was working on his mustang about 7 months ago, he was doing transmission work on it, as he was removing it from the rear diff, the last bolt he THOUGHT was solid, turned out to be sheared off, the drive shaft fell and hit him in the same spot. He was pulling the drive shaft to do some differential work as well. I have to feel that this falls into the blood sweat and beers category.

MY buddy jeff was indulging in some frosty beverages while taking out the driveshafts in his ranger (which of course was the long one, 58" or something I think) Got hit right above the eye in about the same general location....Was funny as @!#$!

Curt, I understand we have the same name but did you seriously have to go and get your eye socket busted up like mine? That's sh!tty dude. Well at least you're getting some work done on the Blazer. I've been doing some work too...

I get really pissed washing this car by hand, way too many imperfections. I loved doing it with the blue car, she had her flaws but they were relatively unnoticeable, this car...looks like the previous owner didn't know what wax was or just didn't give a shit. Either way, it doesn't matter. I want to paint the whole car in the next couple years anyway. Yeah, I'll wash and wax it until then but won't go overboard on the stuff.

It's alright Manta, I'll keep my stuff. I do have an idea that I might play with with a spare valve cover I've got, similar to what you did with the coil cover...

Oh, and I did live in Indy...briefly...but I did live there.

I've been eyeballing these tires for quite some time. Glad I've got my hands on them, now I just have to get my 16's back from a friend that I let borrow them .

Hoosiers should be mounted up this weekend and tried out on the car to see just how much I've got to raise it to clear them.
