Matt included a link to them right here. You might find the door handles on Amazon as well. They had the handle for my HHR.

Glad to provide a tip, even gladder you are getting some hands-on. Its gotta be rough, you be careful now. I have had one of those S10 windows spontaneously shatter a few minutes after a reglator replacement or something. Seen it happen to Mercedes before, too. Pretty much random. But if you are right there it can be a glass shower. Putting masking tape strips on the glass before digging in can keep glass from scattering real bad if that occurs and could be cheap insurance for you.

Back in the day, some glass installers bought bulk and kept them clips around. I hate those things because I fixed so many damn Cieras. Feels like you'll break the glass snapping some of them to it.

Thought I had posted yesterday's five minute proof. Guess not. Looked at a plug, put it back, didn't blow up. I do that sometimes.

I need to change plugs in the Silverado, has almost 100,000 on them and it idles rough.
Can't remember if I ever changed the plugs in the HHR either ??? That just turned 133,000. Maybe I should peek at them when it warms up.

Well today was a Big day progress wise on the shop. 6:30 am and there are people all over my shop and floor. The Concrete crew arrived and was setting up to pour the floor in the shop. They did awesome prep work and as soon as the pump truck arrived the first concrete truck was backing up and a couple of hours later my floor is in and setting up. After finishing the floor the crew started prepping the apron area for pouring in the morning and they are starting again tomorrow morning at 6:30am. This project is gaining speed and will be done soon. The doors are set for next week and final inspection and move in.



This Covid19 may mess with my move in plans as I was going to hire a couple of trained gorillas and move the heavy shop equipment. I was going to rent another 16 ft truck with a lift gate and get the real heavy stuff first.


I think I am going to have the T moved on a flatbed and not mess with a trailer and move it myself. I ain't been feeling real speedy lately and I think I will err on the side of caution and not put more stress on the joints I got left.. A couple of photos to Prove the tale...

Nope, don't have that crap. The more I learn about newer vehicles, the less I want one. The rental we had in AZ would shut off every time I came to a stop. What a worthless pain in the butt that "feature" is. How much gas will that really save ? Maybe a gallon a year... I eventually learned to push the trans into neutral as I was stopping and the engine would stay running, then slap it in gear and hold the throttle down a little as the light was coming back for us.
