Default My Bonnie is uncontrollable







19 years of brass dust from the keys (kinda blurry, but it was a lot)



All this to replace the turn signal arm. The window washer portion broke and I can't stand it when things don't work.


All better now.

No thanks, it was bad enough doing that much. I also found my aftermarket security system. It is a sidewinder 5000. I am amazed it still works.

That and having the right tools. Found out the hard way that it is easier to spend $11 for the lock plate compressor than trying to fight it. I think I could do it in 20 minutes now.

Some of us have to learn the hard way!
