    Great stuff as usual Charles but I think you let us off easy with just 10 items, my list would be 15, 20, maybe 30 things. I’d have to add “keeping one’s freaky-scary-gnarly beard in check” there somewhere. (I’m gonna get kicked off this site yet!)

        Thanks Charles and while I have a minute and haven’t been banned I would like to seriously add under #8 ask for help when the job calls for some serious muscle. Car parts can be very heavy and dangerous when handled alone. Swallow your ego for a minute and ask your buddy for a hand. I’m too old to have any problem asking for help and calling me names has no effect on me because I’m smarter than those other guys and can still walk upright. Getting body parts repaired these days is really expensive and the down time can kill you. Back in 2000 I had a shoulder rebuilt and I was only out about $200.00. Same job today and I’m out over $6000.00. (Thank you lawyers and insurance companies. If they had taken over the mechanic business brake jobs would be ten grand today) Work smart, don’t get hurt. Thanks for the soap-box.
