Er uh.. why not jack up the car and slide it over to the other bay..drive right out.

They make car wheel dollies pretty low cost.

Wasn't it just Saturday when we were talking about the garage door springs!

Thankfully the door didn't come down on the Bonne!

Be careful working on that spring. A guy I know at work replaced one last year. The spring broke, and snagged his pants leg. He fell off the ladder and was left hanging there while the neighbor'* dog chewed almost all of his scalp away. He'* had 9 skin grafts to his head so far and has just joined the Hair Club for Men.
That'* too funny Bill.......but highly unbelieveable.

Yes, I was real lucky it didn't break when the Bonne was entering or leaving. Whew

I suppose if I didn't have three other vehicle choices, I could dolly it over and use the other door.

It really doesn't change my ride though because Laura drives the Bonne during the week......when it isn't raining ....or she uses the Jeep.
I have to drive the T/A or the Formula.....poor me.

Well at least you have some other nice cars to drive while your car is hung up. Wish I could say the same!

OK, I know this has already been said ad nauseum, but do wear safety goggles when tightening that spring. A friend of mine also did almost lose his eye when a garage door spring he was tightening broke and hit him in the eye. Not kidding. It apparently does happen fairly often.
