I guess this should go into the "what did you ruin today" thread.

So today I ruined the rear glass on an econoline 350. What pisses me off about this stationary glass is that I was completely mindful of the fact that they can break very easily. I was taught this by a great tech who once tighten a bolt on one and then loosened it a 1/4 turn and told me to tighten it a 1/4 turn so I can feel how tight it has to be. How cool of him to do that. So I guess I got a little greedy and over tightened. This was a blend panel too. I could have just as easily left the glass in and not dealt with butyl tape but I insisted. Also cut my hand pretty badly as well and am thinking about taking the rest of the week off but will probably wake up and head to work anyways. Bad day.

On another note, I'm taking a real liking to Ice Habiscus tea with honey and a tad of cranberry juice. No more soda or too much juice. I feel great!
