lol i hate to be the one to break this to you, but just about every guy in a relationship is going to find a way to blame her girlfriend for almost everything that goes wrong, regardless of wether or nor its their fault. aside from that, wouldnt you get pissed if someone left your door half open and just went "its fine dont worry about it" and walked away?

as for the panel, i got the panel off and 2 of the hooks busted off. its currently sitting on the washer, im gorilla gluing them back on. i have no idea where all the screws went. the one behind the light was sitting there, but i pulled so hard that the ones in the handle squeezed out through the handle into the door somewhere. i took off the beauty cover and was like wtf whered they go? lol. guess ill replace them with stronger better grabbing sheet metal screws

Did the test on the ICM to figure out why the Bonneville quit running, and discovered a broken harmonic balancer. Wiped out the keyway and busted the flange that goes over the crankshaft. Hope i can salvage or replace the key on the crankshaft, but at least I figured out the source of all this car'* troubles over the last couple of months.

What did you do with your car/truck or shop today?-1114011658a.jpg

I bought this today. 3.5mm AUX jack. Hopefully I'll be able to put it in (with the help of eltatertoto'* write up) this weekend

I also bought a tool box to keep in my trunk for the few tools and junk I have lying around my back seat, under my seats, and basically everywhere I could squeeze it in my car.

Talking Could be a Desert led hole magnet soon

I am considering taking this Eight Eight out to the desert and shoot it many times over. Then I will blow it up a few times for giggles.

However, I am going to give this forum a chance before I make it a piece of the land scape. <-- positive thinking.

Got the Cutlass out first time in a month. Put just about 40 miles on it. Filled it up with gas and changed the oil when I got home.

Still need to put it away for the winter. I bought some more jackstands so I can get the tires off the ground.
