Default Changed the oil pan gasket today....

But when I opened the Fel-Pro box (that I bought last week) I found the same gasket that'* been sitting around the garage since I pulled it out of my sisters GP GT when she bought it 1.5 yrs ago. $47.xx down the drain. Not to mention the one that was at home was a GM unit.

Almost as bad were the guys running around the shop, and almost all of them came by and shoved a burning cigarette in my back pocket while I was working on my car (on the hoist). Damn those things burn if you don't catch them right away.

Do you mean, return the gasket I bought? If that'* what you are asking, there'* nothing I can do as I used the Fel-Pro gasket since I was 10 miles from home where the GM gasket was.
