Hahahahaha I got the lugs off fine... Just couldn't get the stupid tire itself off!!! I know they aren't feather light or anything, but geez... My upper body strength leaves something to be desired. Or I wasn't doing it right. Either way, I'll get there! Next stop.... Oil change! I really wish I'd learned how to do all of this sooner! Better late than never for a new hobby, right?

My daughter just got her license..so I bought her a stick shift vw golf.. Part of the deal was that as soon as she got her car she was to come to my shop and we did a complete service and I showed her where everything was and how to check it.. AND I made her change a tyre... Twice...and she learned how to use jumper cables correctly... She had to jump start her friends car the other day and she called me all pissed off because she says I forgot to tell her that you can't touch the two cables together... Sometimes you just have to learn the hard way..she won't do that too many times again..lol..

Before getting into rovers, I restored Ducati singles from the 60s. My young daughter helped me with everything. By the time she entered high school, she could've rebuilt dell'orto carbs blindfolded, split cases with one hand, all this from a 5 foot 95 pounder. The downside, guys worshipped the ground she walked on...

My daughter started driving in May; the day she got her license I made her change a tire with me and learn to use jumper cables.
Two days later, a FedEx truck hit her rear tire and punctured it. Through the tears, she directed one of the school teachers (driving by at the time) on how to change the tire on a Disco 2. The teacher commented on how surprised he was that my daughter knew where everything was, the jack point, and how to change the tire. She told him 'my dad loves me, so he made me learn'. A proud moment.
We could probably start a daughter's stories thread... I read some really good stories in various threads. The daughter sneaking out and dad making police drive her home was one of the best...

My mom actually taught both my brother and I how to change a tire when we learned how to drive. Dad taught me how to jump a car. I've used both skills many times in my life.... Usually clipping my tire on a curb or leaving the light on in the car. Lol I wish more women were encouraged to know their car. I've helped some guys change their tire and helped people jump their cars before (why don't people keep cables in their car?? ) and they're always surprised. I'm grateful my husband knows how to do things and is willing to teach me! I'm so happy to hear the men on here are passing on their knowledge to their daughters!!!

Got asked by a couple of rent-a-cops on Quantico if I wanted to trade the truck for their cruiser.

Received my second pair of roll bar pads from Badger and installed them; the roll cage looks much better with them on.
I also had to replace one of my rear tail-lights because the part that retains the bulb and socket got too hot and melted.

Should have driven it. Hand-me-down Chrysler 300M overheated and brought the coolant to a nice rolling boil. Ugh.

Scooped up about 30 lbs of scraped off waxoyl, dirt and rusty metal from the floor under my 110. Chassis repairs are done, cleaned and 2 coats of POR 15 and flat black. Time to start building my tub back up to get this thing on the road.

That's pretty cool! I found a parking garage RFID card in my dash. Some place in Arizona. And lots of sunflower seeds.
