LOL, I told a guy who lives two hours away that I'd do his wheel bearings if he drove to me. I owed him for looking at a car for me.

Took about an hour per bearing. The bolts were nearly frozen. I pulled out the big (3ft) ratchet and on the passengerside had to pull the balljoint apart to get a better angle on it. Ridiculous...

Today: I think I'm stopping off and picking up a new mirror assembly. Need a motor (turkey busted a couple clips I didn't notice the other day) and the glass. Driving w/o a mirror is torturing me. Likely the Bonne will be back up and running again tonight.

I backed SSExi out in to the parking lot so I could clean up the shop floor, then drove it back in to the shop.

I, FINALLY, finished the body work on my truck. I finished the hood last night. If I would of had help then I would have worked on the hood off the truck, but instead I did everything to it while it was on the truck. I started to put a new sending unit in my gas tank, but the sock filter didn't go on right and when I took it back off I broke it. (Stupid is as stupid does.)
