What's going on! All our members are falling apart!
Dave - time to switch to a shop manager or owner. Then you can have all the young bucks do the work.

Pete, yeah, but the good news is I'm not limping like I was at Roswell. LOL!

Clint, I really wish I could, but I hate dealing with customers and I would kill someone if their work wasn't the right quality. Plus what it costs to open a repair shop these days, I'd never be able to bring home a real paycheck. Now maybe if Diana actually made decent money, I might be able to do something, But for now I will just be the sole proprietor of 661 Skinnersville rd. LOL!

Well, finally got my tooth pulled today. I got gassed and never felt a thing! only issue was the bleeding didn't stop like they wanted it to, so they kept me under for a little while longer. Still have the gauze in my mouth and am spitting blood, but I don't feel the pain anymore. Glad I had it done on a Friday, I have 2 days to fully recover before heading back to work. Hoping I'm back to normal tomorrow, I'd like to finish cutting the lawn and get some work done on the SS. Plus Sunday I have to get some work done on Jason's truck as well and help Matt with Clint's car.

Glad you finally got that sucker out. Please don't go working on my car. Just relax this weekend for a change!
My wife cracked or broke a tooth a couple days ago. She's got an appointment with the dentist next Tuesday. That should be a nice unexpected bill.

Thanks guys, Relax?? That is not in my vocabulary, Unless I'm at the racetrack or a car show, LOL! I have been sooooooo friggen bored today! I took 2 naps and have been driving Diana nuts! She wouldn't let me go back to work, even though I'm sure she wanted me to go.

Clint, I won't be able to do much, but I need to get the car up as high as I can so Matt can do some work to the rockers and the front nose piece. Jack owes us some labor time, so Matt will have him under the car stripping the old sealer. I want to see what I have to do with the frame braces. Plus I want to try to figure out some mounting points for the washer bottle.

Yeah, I guess I took it easy today. I trimmed the tree in the yard, my jaw started to throb, so I moved on to the bushes. Then went to the garage and help Matt weld the brace on my truck. After a bit I went and worked on the SS. Found the ground strap I missed, fixed that. Plus found the wire to the O2 sensor was cut, so I repaired that. Then I rechecked the ignition system because I was getting a high speed miss. The rotor was all carboned up. The new cap button was coming apart. I cleaned it and replaced the button with the one from the old cap. Took it for a quick peel around the block. Runs a lot better, and 90% of the hesitation is gone. But still doesn't run like it did. The computer set a lean code so I checked for a vacuum leak. Turns out the intake manifold gasket is leaking. That is the first time I have ever had a Fel Pro gasket fail on me!

So next week, I will tear it apart again and see if I can get it to seal. I won't be able to drive it to Summit with a vacuum leak like this, It will burn a valve.

Don't need no burnt valve. Glad you found the leak but then again you would have checked everything till you found it.

I woke up with the worst hangover feeling today! I didn't even drink anything. Guess all the pills and gas are finally wearing off. The sun is giving me a pounding headache, so I tried to stay inside today.

Boy Work tomorrow is going to be fun!!

Glad you're feeling better Dave. Hope each day gets a little better so you're back to 100% soon.
Lisa's luck is just like yours. She went to the dentist today about her cracked tooth. She's gonna need a crown and an implant to replace a tooth she had pulled years ago. Total for all this will be $3800. WTF! I can never get ahead. Looks like we already have next year's tax return spent. Yippie. That money wss supposed to go towards my paint job.

Clint, that sucks! I don't think I would even consider a crown or Implants. I had to have the root canal about 12 years ago, 3 years later, it cracked, the crown cap fell off and I swallowed it. The tooth got infected and had to be pulled anyways.

I'm doing a lot better, I'll be 100% by the weekend. Still getting used to eating on that side again. Corn on the cob was fun tonight LOL!

I've been lucky ( or I have a better dentist lol ) Had plenty of root canals, posts, bridges with very good results. One bridge I had in for over 30 years. All this was payback for my playing football for 35+ years.

Went to the retina specialist last Friday. Everything looks good in that right eye, outside of the fact that I'll never see out of it again. Don't have to see him again till February 2017. That will save me a lot of money as my co pay was $50 each visit for the 12 visits I needed this year.

So there's still nothing they can do to restore your sight?
I'm glad everything looks fine. That's good news.
