I KNEW better, but I got too complacent in my security. Someone broke into my garage and took off with some tool boxes, along with my Milwaukee power tools. I loved that little cordless ratchet! I think I had around $500 in the Milwaukee tools alone, not including the variety of half inch drive sockets and the old indestructible half inch drive ratchet that was in the Zombietruck when I found it. It was an old weird off brand I can't recall, but it was very old and survived removing a bolt that my breaker bar broke on. I mean... those of you who have held a ratchet knows that sound, but this thing sounds like hammers hitting anvils as you turned it.
What's worse is there were car parts in those boxes. If I remove a part using a tool from a given box I'll often put the part in the box with the tool. Right now I don't know what parts were in the box.
I used to engrave a number on all of my tools way back when I didn't have a garage and kept my tools in a shed. If a tool gets stolen I
So as many of you know I have way too many cars. One of my favorites is a 1993 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi with a supercharged (from factory) 3.8 V6.

Let's replace the timing chain and it's tensioner and we can fix the oil leaks in the process!"
It was a bigger job than we thought and it's been off the road for two years now. But we got it together and running, fixed the hoses, fixed the gauge panel (mostly) and so on. The supercharger was blown and through SHEER LUCK I found an exact twin to the car at a salvage yard, so I gutted it. I took everything except the short block, glass, and body. I even took the wheels. Nice tires on them, for sure!
But we had one HUGE problem. The Service Engine Soon light was on. We couldn't get it to go off and the code itself didn't offer much else just that one of 4 program drivers were not
I have been keeping myself very busy, sorry I haven't replied to comments but I will get to them. I also have a pic to post, too.
I haven't done any show worthy progress on the Camaro, but as soon as I can get someone to shoot the firewall and inner fenders I can take some pics and it will be time to reassemble! That will be a slow process but fun.
In the meantime a friend
Did this for me.
