That is one jacked up x-ray... and some folks will believe it's yours knowing you will be under the car again...

hey, I just watched the movie 127 hours... please let someone know when you are ready to climb under the car... and have a supply of water available just in case...

There is nothing funny about it, it's a movie based on a true story, the story of Aron Ralston, a mountaineer, canyoneer, that became trapped when an 800 lb rock came loose and followed him into a narrow canyon trapping his arm... He was stuck there for five days until he finally amputated his own arm to survive... He is a true survivor, and still climbs and guides people today... He made a couple of mistakes and learned from them... Amazing story of survival... one of the mentally toughest people that have ever walked the face of the Earth as far as I'm concerned...

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/...n7031884.shtml

Please be careful, we dont want any more PQ stories involving x-rays and working on your car... or trips to the hospital for any work other than hitting on nurses and cute female doctors...

I remember now. I saw a show on his ordeal. he barely made it to the car and by Gods will there was someone there to see him at the bottom of the hill. he admited there was no way he's make it up the hill and for the first time thought he was going to die. The nerve was the last thing he cut. He had to break both his bones too.

Ok, now I get it.

No. All is good. Got it installed and all is good. Ran it for a bit this morning and it's good. I'll be checking all the bolts over the next few weeks to make sure they stay tight but I put plenty of locktite on them.

On a lift I probably could have done it in two hours havign never done it before. On jackstands....................... about 6 hours.

Car only about 18 inches off the ground and had to remove the entire cat-back.
