Yep, houses get in the way of a project, don't they!At least that is what I was thinking Friday morning.
Anyway, its been awhile since I posted so I figured I would say hello and see how everyone was doing. I haven't been on much because as it turns out owning a house is a lot more work than I thought it was.
Good job! I can relate to this. But it's worth all the blood, sweat and tears in the end!A few months ago I bought a rear end from a fellow member on here (Steve, aka Cuzz), but never got around to swapping it out until today. Since I had no help, I did it myself in a cramped garage, with just an ancient floor jack, a bunch of cheap Harbor Freight tools, and my own sheer will and brute force. Taking the old one out took nearly the entire day Friday, and getting the new one in place took all day today.
In the end, I invented lot of unholy new words, I pulled nearly every muscle in my back, and my hands are covered in a mix of scrapes, cuts, brake dust and gear oil. Its been a great weekend.
I started using surgical gloves on some of my messier projects. At least my hands stay clean that way if not anything else!
Hope the neighbours didn't hear you!!!
