So I was working away again on the E-scort. Was all ready to weld the rad support in when while I was installing the tranny cradle bolt...

SNAP, TEAR, FARK!!!



Captured nut wasn't welded worth crap and when it let go what was left of the other welds bent the crap out of the bottom support.

But this is what it looked like before:



New one on the way for free though :D

So I had little time and needed to prep the peon for winter. Rotated the tires so now the most meaty tires are on the front, and whipped the winter car mats in. The frame is a little more rigid than the Escorts. I need my garage back, working outside in the snow sucks. When I changed the oil in the driveway I was laying on a sheet of ice 8O

It's been like that ever since it was made. I didn't make the sig, and I never really bothered to get the guy who made it for me to fix it for me.

But yes, I can fix tit too :p

I wasn't going under that. I had a jackstand at the passenger rear. I had jacked up the front enough for me to switch tires. Trust me, if I'm going under something, it's fully supported. I've seen jackstands collapse before, not nice. We had a set of collapse on us at work. It had a 24 000lb boom lift on it.

That sucks Matt... sorry to hear about the setback.
The next deer won't be so willing to give up his life once he sees how much work you're willing to do to make their work obsolete.

I just spent the morning helping my dad clear out his garage. I've got to work on his car (blown rear diff). I realized that I've never worked on a car INSIDE this garage. Hopefully, once I get his car straightened out, I'll be moving my BMW project in there to get underway (after a 2 year haitus)

I think I had beat you to it... I mentioned that to him the day he started using that sig... but I love how nobody realy notices or says anything... Maybe the guy who did Matt's sig for him just has boobs on the brain...
