Both of my wagons made it through the hurricane unscathed. Yaaaa! So now the street sweeper throws a stone and hits the windshield of the 91, and it is shattered right in front of the driver's side. This is after the fuel pump quit, and I hurt my arm helping my father do some yard work. I can barely lift my arm to remove the bolts to drop the tank, let alone get the tank down. I have a bunch of parts to pull for different people, and both wagons need work. When is the crap going to stop?...BTW, my insurance notified me that my rate went up $30 per month.

Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how'd you enjoy the play?

Kidding aside, let your arm heal up first. Guys and their parts can wait.

Breath deep, keep moving. Take care of the important stuff (family and your health). The rest can wait.

Hope your arm gets better Fred. This getting old thing is no fun. I find, for the first time in my life, I have to be very careful if I lean over and lift something relatively heavy, like a bag of mulch. I used to just grab it and go-now, I move it slowly, and make sure to lift carefully using my legs instead of my back. Hopefully it's just a muscle ache, which should sort itself out in a few days. I swear by Alieve when that sort of thing happens to me.

Glad you made it through the hurricane safely, but sorry to hear about the latest frustrations.

As for getting old, I did that compound and wax on the 92 Roady Sedan...the paint was DEAD when I started, and I polished on it for hours. The next morning I could not lift my arms and my back was spasming...it was SILLY. I'm only 43! Ha!

Age is fun stuff. Take Care!

If you have comprehensive on the 91, windshield glass is a $0 deductible. If not, it's $200
I just had mine done in the 94 by Safelite. Found an online coupon that covered the $25 come to you fee. I think it was 190 out the door and they came to my car.

Sorry bout the arm man, I hate being injured....Hope you heal up quickly.

No comp. The glass replacement is about $185 here, unless it went up. I have to put a new FP in the tank as well.

Latest update...My mom fell this morning, so nothing is getting done for a few days.
