I can't believe they are that old already!! You got lucky it seems with the first 2! Now you have to get the "cool" one to pay attention. Now that the quarter is on there I'm having paranoia attacks just knowing after all this time someone is going to ram me! 3 hrs after i got the door on someone almost hit me in the same door, luckily i stopped in time! Sure happy I don't ever want the whole car painted I'd really be doomed!
Cliff did ask if i was ever going to get it all painted and I told him NOPE. So then he says well that means we can get the top on then. Must be nice to be young and ambitious! I don't know his age but want to say somewhere in his 40s. I don't think I had that ambition in my 40s either! So now i need to order the tension cables and order different top pads as now they have the ones with the corner section that i originally would need to make.
Being that there seems to always be a domino effect, my windshield is now leaking. But i did spin the tires for the first time in a 100 yrs and was moving 25mph before i stepped on it! Granted there was sand on the pavement but it wouldn't of done that before. We were trying out an edelbrock as my 4100 needs a kit and the rear butterflies are sticking, from lack of use i'm sure! Shocked the heck out of me that it did that though, it was never that easy it was only a power braking type thing.
My doors are both working well and because the driver door, i found out, only latched the first latch forever i now hear the SHUT THE DOOR! cause i just let it fall shut and it is the first latch. Somebody I knew told me some guy walked by my car and opened and shut the door. Told him oh that was cliff, now i'm in trouble again for not shutting that door all the way again! Even the trunk lid i almost slam sometimes cause i forget how easy it's shutting!! Like a new car!!!
Ben's car almost got a similar crunch last week, 17 yr old was backing his expedition away from the garage to get the tractors out, didnt see the gal sitting beside him(didnt even look) cut the wheel started backing... i literally screamed and luckily he heard me- stopped with about 1/2" from the back of the rear door(and quarter that i just painted 2 wks ago)...jeez
gotta get that kid out driving more, been lucky with the 20 yr old, the 18 yr old though has already took out a garage door, door fender on his ranger(that was a run off the snowy road issue though- he shoulda been driving a bit slower, but dashcam showed a car ran him off the edge into the snow)...but the 17 yr old...ugh. he wants to sit head back on headrest, one hand on wheel, looks drunk/half asleep- constantly getting after him for posture, he wants to barely glance at mirrors, wont turn his head- i'm pretty patient, but oh how it pisses me off riding with him...every 30 seconds its 'sit up' watch-watch-watch...know i'm frustrating him too, but hes a accident waiting to happen and it scares the heck out of me...
