Well... Not done today, but the last thing I did with my Sky was watch as a futon frame crashed down on her tail light :banghead:
It could have been worse, I finished restoring and painting my 69 firebird 400 before I went in for back surgery years ago. Every few days I'd go peek in the garage to look at it, no one else went in there, one day the metal cover for the garage door opener that was on top of a box, on a shelve above the car had to have jumped off, landed on the roof above the windshield sharp side down, then the box it was sitting on jumped off, landed on top of the cover, skied down the windshield, across the cowl and on to the fender and hood leaving the glass cut and the paint down to the metal....
Hehehe! A week or so ago, Bill (wspohn) posted a video on the Solstice forum, So I ask your (skersfan) are you getting there!! :skep:I went by the garage, checked on my baby, told her I would be gone for ten days, covered her back up with her two car covers, closed the door and locked it. My wife thinks I am nuts. After thinking about it, I most likely am a little overboard with this car, Shut Robo!
Rocks inside the tires?Put the car up in the air to see where this annoying clinking sound was coming from in the rear.
. . . . .
Figured out the clinking sound was from rocks that got in the tires when I got ran off the road and they popped their beads.
When I went to have the back tires replaced the other day, I ask the counter guy not to use an air impact, to use a breaker bar and torque wrench to remove/replace the wheels. He said they have to use an impact. So I told him: "Give me my money back then because if anyone touches my car with an impact I"ll kick their freeking a$$!" He went & got the manager, he said no problem, wrote & highlighted "Do not use impact", then personally told the tech. He came back and said that the first time they had that kind of a request! Later I stood out in front of the bay to watch & make sure they were doing as ask. The kid working on my Sky was being very careful & meticulous. I then heard another older, smarta$$ worker yell at the kid; "You better dunk those tires in Holy water" when the kid was checking for bead leaks... Later, I thanked the kid for his professionalism and tipped him $10. After the tires were back on, the car went to the alignment bay where the a$$wipe was. He screwed around for at least 1/2 hour without touching my car, then the kid I tipped went over to his bay and did the alignment. I couldn't hear what they were saying, but the hand gestures indicated the a$$ was saying WTF to the kid, who kept on working... Kudos to the kid & manager at National Tire & Battery at the Forum shopping center, San Antonio!Put the car up in the air to see where this annoying clinking sound was coming from in the rear. Broke off a wheel stud taking off the wheel because the tire place cross threaded the nut! Grrrrr...
I remember at the group inservice for new saturn owners at the dealership, we were told that no impact wrenches were used on the saturn production lines or at the dealerships, and advised not to let anyone use one on our car foe such reasons....Using an impact doesn't bother me...
