Installed a new garage door yesterday. The only thing left to do is to install the torsion spring since I'm not going back to the extension springs.

nice travis. today, i replaced laurens passenger fender, pasenger rocker cover, warshed them both, and fixed the schrader valve in the low side check port of the a/c. then proceeded to vaccum it out and fill it with 4 freakin cans of freon. $60 for the freon. it pays to have a dad in HVAC. and have the knowledge from watching him over the years. god only knows what a shop would charge to vacuum out the system recharge and replace the valve.

Got another job turning wrenches. Guy I go to school with has his own shop and hired me. Started today on a mess of a car.

2013 Toyota Venza from New York with flood damage. I'm gonna have to take out all the interior and replace all the wiring, replace all the modules, replace the ECU, basically EVERYTHING electrical.

I've never seen water damage like this before, but I've never seen salt water flood damage either. The customer is in Africa, so I don't have to get this car to like new condition thank God.

Oh and to add to the stress, the guy who hired me thinks I'm an electrical genius and told the customer that I'm an expert. Thanks bud.

Sounds like a fun project Nick. I'd like helping with that one (minus the mold).
