That's OK,but was it NY or Chicago style?
No, you don't want to know, It's a 2003 Honda accord getting a 1/4 and RR door. and cleaning the old shop up , whata mess....
Gotta new helper though. want a few laughs? like him removing a door panel without taking the screws out first....That's AFTER I showed him how to do it on the used replacement door ... only3 phillips head screws had to be pulled first then 5min later he forgot to pull the screws and started by pulling the top of the panel off first instead of popping the off the bottom clips and pushing the panel up over the top lip...I have no idea how he did it but he had the whole thing just about off and didn't screw it up or break anything before I caught him.(pretty impressive )its his third day at the shop and I think he'll workout. Reminds me of me.

So after driving my Rambler every single day for over 4 years I just learned how to use this super complex heater system. You see, there is this knob under the dash that was pulled out all the time I have been driving it. The defroster/heater didn't work worth a crap and the engine would get hot when I turned it on. On my way to work this morning I read that knob, "hmmmmmm push for heat or vent, I wonder it that will help?" I pushed it and the windows cleared up and you could have baked a cake in there! Damn this new technology!

YEOW! I will never forget a mechanic of my brothers who was working on a car and the next thing you know he was dancing around the shop holding his hand that was dripping blood going "I f&#ED up, I f&%#ed up." LOL He was trying to remove a piston from a brake caliper. He put his hand in the caliper then blew into caliper with a blower on the air hose....the piston just about cut the end of his finger off!

It's still progress.
There are days that I have to stop working and put all the tools back so I can find them again.

My chiropractor started coming here on Tuesdays 2 years ago to learn how to work on cars. At first, he was mostly a tool fetcher. I would tell him which tool box to go to, which drawer to open and where in that drawer the tool was located. He was always amazed that I would know that. Now he can find many of the most used tools the same way by himself...

What's funny is my tools themselves, oh I am super anal about that. I could go to my tool box or wall hanger with my eyes closed to fetch a tool, no kidding, I mean, without a doubt 90% of my tools I could go to them with my eyes closed and grab it. But the junk, the parts, the crap like that is what I have a problem with.

I don't know about you, but after I get the shop cleaned up, a switch in my head turns on and I feel great and can get so much more done. Things just start to click after.

Why those sneaky so and so's! Instead of using some indistinguishable icon that could either resemble a refrigerator, the bathroom sink or a Atomic explosion, THEY had the audacity to write the instructions in english on the knob!

It will never catch on.
