don't drill a hole, do not use a cotter pin, the cotter pin can fall out or break and create shrapnel and that's a bad f--king day. loctite it with the red compound and put it on to the torque spec and pray to the Bimmer Gods it never comes off.

I have one on that subframe, but it's covered in snow, so you're better off for now. but for future reference, I have a 325is subframe haha with just about all the stuff still attached.

My co-worker asked if I'd help him replace the headlight in his W211 E350. Sure I says, no problem.

Well Mercedes mounted the coolant overflow tank 1/4" too close to the headlight so I told him I'd bring in a handful of screwdrivers. Well the little plastic rivet/screw-thing wasn't in the shape of any phillips, torx or hex bit i've ever seen, and of course it stripped out the first time I looked at it funny.

So that's how I spent 30 minutes of my work day in 15* weather, slicing the back of my hand open on an overflow tank while I changed the bulb by feel. German cars.

Haha, I dont really mind that much, I'd rather stand out in the cold for a few minutes than hear about the dealer charging him an hour and a half labor and telling him his turn signal fluid is low, never hurts to do someone a favor.

But what if his turn signal fluid WAS low? You wouldn't know what to do! It's a special blend only Mercedes knows how to craft. I heard it involves the tears of dying butterflies, but not in the obvious way.


Can you tell I am bored at work today?

The throttle was converted from the thumb control, to a wrist twist action off a dirt bike. Sometimes the cable would hang up and just keep on going.
There was no key to turn it off (lost it, so I hot wired it on all the time. Kick start and go!), and the kill switch didn't always work.
I had a blaster! Fun little turd. Mine had the early style cable brakes, which of course didn't work. We have a nice hill climb in the woods that only a select few do. I'm one of them.

Needless to say my tires were bald enough to only allow me to make it 5 feet from the top, where I immediately plummeted down rolling and bouncing along.

It's pouring rain today.

Standing in the rain, getting completely drenched, was a window washer with his bucket and squeegee, washing our building's windows....


....in the rain.


They were covered in droplets as soon as his squeegee left the pane.

What am I missing here? Last time we had the windows cleaned it was also raining. Wtf?

They figured they would save money by having him use rain water instead of cleaning solution

Still removes all the junk on the windows. All true dirt and other stuffes.
Besides, if window washer only worked on dry days, they wouldn't have work for a long time in some places.

Haha! Mine were bald as I am too! And my damn chain would always break at in opportune times.

The brakes I upgraded to a hydronic system from a Honda.
When I sold it, it was more Honda than Yamaha.

I liked it a lot, upgraded to a banshee which was pretty fast, then traded that for my current 05 Honda trx 450r.

Always wanted a banshee. But never had the coin.
Ended blown a hole through the cyl sidewall and having a sleeve dropped in.
Did it again, but sold it the second time. Got a whole $450 bucks.
Went towards college books.

Ok I am reaching pretty far back, but my stubbornness and OCD wouldnt let me leave those past pages unread.

Marijuana:

The only hurdle that didnt get mentioned is a test to measure impairment that's admissible in court. Weed is similar to alcohol in that it impairs a person's ability to safely drive a car. The current tests cant tell whether you smoked 30 mins ago or 12 hours and 30 mins ago. Until a system similar to catching drunk drivers is available, an outright legalization is bad. I dont want drunk drivers. I dont want high drivers. I dont care about drunk or high people otherwise.

Ken:

Count me in on the firearm thread. Also, I really hope Turner gets back to you about an interview. I had the pleasure of meeting will and James Clay at the grand am race at IMS this past summer. Two cool guys for sure.

Matt:

Play the LEO aspiration card all day while searching for an XD. Too many people are going out and buying due to the political talks. Dealers will be much more welcoming to a person with a respectable reason to purchase in these times.
