Default Poor Me... *Sad Face*

Apparently my dealership is going down faster than we thought. It is my sad duty to inform you all that I am no longer the Parts Guy for the forum. The owner seems to think that my boss the Parts Manager can handle it all by himself, so I was laid off.

Darn the luck dh2

I will still be on regularly, but will be looking for a computer IT job in the area, something more into my career plans. So no more dealer lookups, but advise i will be here for.
Thought you all should know

Sorry to hear that TL. I was laid off and got a job that was a hundred times better than what I had and I'm sure it will be the same for you. Good luck.

Very Tuff break TL, I will be rooting and Praying for you. Freaking economy is just unreal. The Feds are blowing a smokescreen up our azz'* and things just continue unravel. I got a letter from Dodge saying our local Dealership was one who wouldnt be chosen to remain under their reconstruction plan. It'* a huge one and alot of people axed. And with other brands closing in the area, no chance to join another team. I'm glad you have other skills to fall back on. Hope you find a good placement soon.

Thanks guys, prayers and hopes are definitely appreciated. Had a fun weekend so far, gotta wake up early and go get another titanium drill bit to piece back together the bonnie so i can look around for jobs

I put in a new manifold some time back and during the removal process i managed to snap off the head of one of the 2 bolts on the crossover *mind you its a series 1 with a solid cross on the front side* but it had to be put back together for work the next day so i clamped it down with 1 bolt and it seemed solid with little signs of a leak in it, so i put it off... not working on monday was the jolt i needed to spend today working on tearing apart everything to get it removed so i didnt have a leak like i do now.... i used a titanium bit to bore a good hole thru the middle, and snapped the extractor screw trying to pry it out, then dulled the titanium bit trying to bore thru the extractor screw... crappy screw is tought lol, so i had to halt it until tomorrow lol... this is going to be a pain

Nevertheless I am still remaining hopeful and god willing i will be back on my feet in no time
