I keep re-opening this damn cut on everything I touch. You never realize how often the backs of your fingers touch things .. until you slice them open. :lol:

Here's a mower I worked on today. Might need some blades .... :shock: :lol:

:lol: Yeah .... about 100% opposite of that ... ;)

How hard would it be for GM to install a 1/8" grease fitting on those damn joints??? :mad:

From the looks of it I'll be replacing the entire lower control arm ... :mad: :mad:

Good - I wasn't sure of that.

From the quick look of it, it looked to be one piece. That wouldn't surprise me these days .... :roll:

In my work (upholstery) I can NOT get blood on fabric, yet, I do manage to bleed at least a couple times a week. I yell "Clot break!" and take 18 minutes off. In all my years I have yet to run a finger through the sewing machine....not that it would matter, it would just stitch as it went. ;)

- it works, I use it on every one of my vehicles, and most of my family and friends do as well. tell them to spray it heavy and give the guy a tip, also they discount for multiple vehicles. should be re-applied every fall. No brake rust, no frame rust, no body rust, no electrical corrosion. Makes doing maintenance a breeze as there's no rusty nuts/bolts. It's a jellied oil-based rustproofing that doesn't hide or trap anything, but protects everything. My father's '99 F-250 has 0 rust and over 450,000 miles. None of my vehicles have under 200,000miles and none have any rust. I HIGHLY recommend it.
