Yup. You heard right. Of course, it already happened. A few kind members took it upon themselves to replace my recently stolen torque wrenches out of kindness and caring.

I just recieved my set of extra Taillights for the Zilla from a member, and in the box was a BEAUTIFUL monster torque wrench.

To those that contributed, a big THANK YOU from me and all the members I'll help by using this beauty. 1/2" drive, 50-250 ft/lbs, 27" long. Model 39104

Torque wrenches were stolen from my garage about a month ago.

So far, I've only pinned two guilty PIF'ers.

Let'* all remember... Mr. Wren is not aware of who contributed and who did not.

For all, he was instructed to open his "tail lights" only after calling. The call comes in while I'm chatting with Jr's3800.

Wren: Ok..I'm opening it (caution in voice about the possible confetti in box ...see Dilcc post )
Me: yep... (yawn...knowing he'* slow)
Wren: This one has no delam, this one looks pretty good, oh.. here'* a little delam, yeah..this one has some too
Me: Yaaaaawn.. you take them out of the box and look them all over?
Wren: Doing that now (packing material shuffling
Wren: What the.. what'* th..... WHERE'D THIS COME FROM?
Me: Where'd what come from (yawn)
Wren: There'* a freaking monster torque wrench in here you B****!
Me: Dear Mr. Wren...you have been Pay It Forwarded
Wren: Wha...How... (thinking..he'* an admin and knows about everything)
Wren: Now I can do suspension work!!!!!! <~~ (you could hear the grin and still surprise in the voice)

After a many thanks to all... he babbled the "I gotta go... my battery is dying" (As usual) and was gone.

I doubt any of us have ever heard him that surprised before.

Now Bill.. that picture you posted doesn't do your new tool justice does it? NOPE..
Hand the camera to the little one and have her get one of your big grin with your new torque wrench in hand. (yes..I know..it'* taller than you, try man..try!)
