    good to see some others on here who enjoy getting aggravated at vehicles while working on them. amajr316, you should check out mancave518. i'm trying to get a good firearm section set up on their. there are plenty of car related threads.

    Yesterday on a vehicle I have not worked on before I had to change the rear brakes and also the oil. Guess which one took longer? Brakes went great! Good to see guys who change oil still use impact wrenches to crank the damn filters on

    Been a car guy (and turning wrenches) since I was a kid and I've been a service advisor at Romano Volkswagen for five years now. I lost interest in project cars a long time ago, though. I did some simple mods to my Silverado, and I have my street bike and sport quad now.

    Used to be a big car guy. My father an I redid a 59 Cadillac and 60 Buick years ago. Both the cars are long gone. I was a muscle car enthusiast, but never had the chance to own a 67 GTO, my dream car. I enjoy my new (2014) Challenger, and tinker here and there. Being disabled makes it kind of difficult, but none the less, I get a few upgrades done.

    Got any rear axle bump stops for the 1988 GMC C3500 I pictured? I put Timbrens on it when I was running a heavy truck camper. They ride about 3/4 inch off the axle. Now that the camper is gone I do not need them. They limit the suspension as they will come into contact with the axle and cause quite a jolt when there is no or light load on the truck. Was looking for the stock bump stops I removed when I put the Timbrens on and will be damned if I can find them.

    '68 Squareback, '71 Thing (Mexican), '68 Bug, '74 Bug, '78 Camper, '03 Eurovan... A few others, mostly donor cars. Had a '64 converted to 12 voly, sold it at a car show after the conversion.

    Not all German cars. '68 Rambler "Rouge", '67 Buick Skylark, '68 Ford Falcon, '84 Honda Civic, '85 Jeep CJ7...............

    if you can't find them you can always make some out of hockey pucks.
