I have limited experience with heavy duty stuff like that and it is, in fact, no fun

Never done rear brakes on one before. Had no idea you had to remove the axles and hub to replace the rotors. Then the e brake shoes fell apart so the cost just kept going higher for the customer as I went.

Those are the best!

We have a Lexus here that rear ended someone, real light hit just some small repairs to the bumper

However, the customer went on to say that her brakes were damaged in the wreck.. what she was claiming was that her brake pads had gone completely down to bare metal in the accident..

She's convinced she'll be able to coax her insurance in to replacing her brakes at all four wheels

here's the car in quesion.. you can see the paint transfer on the passenger side.. that was all the damage

Hopefully picking one of these up tomorrow 3rd party new in box. Curious as to how well 250ftlbs does taking lug nuts off. My 3/8 ratchet was lost months ago. Supposed to have mailed me a new one but haven't recieved it yet. The future is cordless.

No. I’ve ran propane heaters before but it’s so sketchy.
ever tried radiant electric?

I've never tried anything like that above, but I have used the radiant gas units for garages, and they're pretty amazing. You can run them to a thermostat, and they can put off some impressive heat.

That first one looks promising. Need to make sure my wiring is up to par. Grandfather built our house when they came over and there were a lot of corners cut. I actually fix those gas heaters from time to time.

I’m good overall. Feels like I have an ear infection now in my right ear, filled with fluid and it hurts. The lady still has a bunch of congestion, maybe has a sinus infection or lingering symptoms.

Glad you both are doing better. Did you get an meds?
