    It would appear that he needs a plastic bubble to wrench out of! Or to not drink BEFORE or DURING when he wrenches!

    Yeah it tore my thumbnail off!! Thought it took my thumb. But i knew better, sometimes you never learn. I had safety glasses on, my eyes are in good shape lol. Right rear is dripping fluid, and i just opened beer #2. If this works I'll be able to get rid of some of my buddies lol. Keep your beer cold, and your circle small

    Did you clip your fingernails during the tattoo removal? Or was it 2 separate incidents?

    No that was all one super exciting incident, i decided it would be much smarter and so much faster to use the grinder with a wire brush to clean up those springs, which upon review was a horrible decision lmao!!! I REALLY need to get a wire brush wheel for the bench grinder :rolleyes:

    Why do chicken coops have 2 doors?

    Cause if they had 4 doors they'd be chicken sedans!

    The rear is done, i was getting a lot of fluid out of each side. So i closed the left rear, let the right rear go a little bit more then closed it. The front right was dripping good so i closed it. Waiting on the left front. If this works I'll buy you a steak in bowling green :D

    Definately get a wire wheel for the bench grinder! It's MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE to get harpooned by hundreds of fine gauge fragment's of wire than it is to unexpectedly have your flesh removed! LOL! :D

Started on the gas pedal, had everything made and ready to go, and i have no bolts long enough to go through the firewall and the gas pedal base :rolleyes: but I'll pick up some monday morning when i get off work. Stick that in, put the tires back on it and move it beside the garage until the next time :):):)

    Gas pedal and wheels, should be good to "drive" around here. Gotta get power steering hoses, and order a gas tank, run new fuel line. I'm running off of a jug zip tied to the core support lol.

    Crazy ass... lol. Where's the best place to get a gas tank for this wagon? See one on egay for like $150, worth buying?

    Honestly, a tank is a tank. Just so long as it doesn't leak. All the big name suppliers get their shit from the same manufacturers as the guy's on EGay. Check Eckler's and Danchuk first, then hit EGay, shoot for the best price. Is yours that bad? A good radiator shop should be able to flush and seal what you have, if it isn't too far gone... Just a thought...
    While you're at it, you might think of going with a new sending unit with 3/8" line coming out of it, instead of 5/16", and running 3/8" line all the way to the fuel pump, just incase of future performance upgrades. Extra volume won't hurt anything...

    I haven't pulled it out yet to check, I'm just going on what everything else has looked like. If i can buy a new one for $150 it's not worth my time to mess with the old one lol. I value my time :D performance upgrade? Didn't you hear? I got a Corvette motor in this thing! :p yeah I'll run 3/8" line. Always do. Guess i could just strap another auxiliary jug on the other side of the core support o_O:D

    Someone posted on the Garage Tips thread recently about putting a spring loaded shower curtain rod between the seat and brake pedal for brake bleeding. I might try that next time my wife's not around.

    I wanted to stay away from tilt and a keyswitch on the column. I like the one i found. Thinking about a nice white flake steering wheel though :D

    How much quality do you expect to get for $150? Has to be made in China by small children.
