Default Broken bolts. . . (56k warning)

Some idiot who shall remain nameless Dan used a socket wrench to tighten the ground bolt down when there was a brand new shiney torque wrench sitting 100 feet away. You all know where this is going . . .


Thats all thats left of it.

My auto mechanic, Dixie, taking a look at it.

Oh yeah, I found out my boss drives a Bonnie SSEi

Its beautiful (when not covered in snow). Badges are gold, gold wheels, gold pinstripe, gold emblem, gigantic hole in the left fender. . .
AND! While at the mall I saw my first ever bubble butt 00+ Bonnie. Looked wrong.

I found a nice hole in the frame for a new ground bolt but I bought the wrong size bolt and the battery ground won't fit on. Anyway over torque 1 bolt, live and learn.

I'm planning on putting a new bolt in the frame a little further to the front since the original bolt had to have been welded on before the fender was put on. I don't feel like pulling the fender off to try and replace the bolt, thats a project for a sunny day. Should work until something more permanent can be arranged.

Is you're boss ser 1 or ser II */C? I've driven them all. Unless a ser 1 is modded it stands no chance to a ser II.

As I was going in to work today I heard this whine getting louder and louder and turned just in time to see him fly down the street. Typical SSEi owner.
I'm pretty sure its a series I. It looks like a '93-'94. Something just doesn't look right about it to be a '95 SSEi. I can't quite place my finger on it though. Heh, I also noticed he doesn't have a license plate on the front.

There is 1 other really neat Bonnie at work. Its an older one with the half body side moulding deal. The top is white, the small bit of moulding there is is white, but the bottom is silver. When was that offered? The grille is from a '91-'93 and its an SE, other than that I know nothing about it.

I'll ask my boss what year his Bonnie is and what series the engine is.
