A first for me!

12 posts in this topic

I find myself to be pretty handy and mechanical but have never changed my brakes before. Well today I did it. I was having the hardest time getting the bolts on the caliper to loosen up so I used my Jack to push on my rachet and that did it. I am very proud of myself and wanted to share it with the ladies and others that hang around the women forum. I was hoping to get the oil changed too but I ran out of time and energy, that is next weekends project. I am so happy that I now have a garage so that I can do this, the apartment rules say that I cant but I don't always follow the rules.

Way to go Hope!! gringrin I did brakes many many times. My dad was a rural mail carrier, so I helped him fix his cars. It's a good feeling when it works out right.

That's awesome, Hope! I am a farm wife, so I get in on all kinds of fixing. There is a lot of satisfaction in saying "I fixed it on my own"! Good for you!

Hey, I'm up in Brooklyn Park as well. Truck needs rear brakes and rotors. I can drop it off for you to work on at any time;)

Good to see you did this job yourself, saved some money to spend on more fishing equipement, and now you know you can tackle this job yourself in the future.

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
