Sure Robo no problem there partner. Yeah.. no brakes very dangerous... you don't say? Who needs brakes.... there are a useless add on by the mfg. Brakes.. were talking brakes here... I never use mine, they just slow my permagrin down. It's just electrical and fluids... Junior Johnson IIRC. No click.. now what the freak? Why that puddle wasn't under my right rear wheel, near the brake line connections when I went into the store... now I have a lake. Not a good thing, anytime anywhere you do see a puddle of some fluid under your car... but she did notice it. Then she called '" YOU " her mechanic of note... you did do her brake job after all was her first thought here, and it was tested on several occasions before her trip.
Never ever trust the notion that you can make it home, with a problem. Yes I can nurse this car home with _______ broken or leaking whatever. I have done it with good results, and bad.. like back up traffic while I push my car off the road. Oh the shame ... the Billy Bob roadside fix to get you home. Duc-tape this, wire tie that.. badda bing badda boom 20 miles later and the driveway is in sight.
She was in Phoenix.. which is a long way from your home. She gets to spend an extra night there, and what happens in Phoenix stays in Phoenix so I've heard. Why is she smiling like that these days? I'll leave that one up to you two....which now brings up this thought. Will she ever let " you " work on her car again? Will she " ask " for a warranty, parts and labor... and if she does while your working away in your garage on it, did she book another fight to Phoenix? Just for " fun " I personally like being in a random to me city with car problems after hours. Exciting but you and thankfully her had someone... to help you and her out this time. Maybe a personal note to Martin would be in order here. Something that he can post on the wall of his shop, as to his good deeds within the community and his shop reputation? You are a customer of his with the fuel rail purchase. Your GF is now a customer too... brakes? Who needs brakes they just slow you down on you return trip home. Home.. I made it back safely once again. Now that is a real deal permagrin.
