Saw the ((ABS)) dashboard light on. Googled it, found the sensor, and wiggled it ti check it. Then the light went off, lol. Wonder how much the mechanic charges to do that?

Lol I left my mass airflow sensor out and drove like 30 miles to work before I realized it. It's running rough to say the least.

After a long debate, I finally painted my bumpers and my grill. I love the new look and I'm glad I did it!

I just scrubbed them with a Brillo pad to get all the bugs and stuff off, then wiped it down with paint thinner to make sure there wasn't any soap residue left on there. Let the paint thinner evaporate before you start spraying paint though.

I got my tail lights in today from ebay $40 for a set of what looks like OEM parts. Saved me about $100 instead of going to the parts store.

My wife drove the Ranger to work, but later I hope to touch-up the spots on my front bumper where I was hit, change my headlight bulbs, check my wind-shield washer fluid, and make sure my front driver-side tire is still holding air (I have two plugs in there and I need new tires by winter).

Just deal directly through MPI. It's how this province does things.

Since it was his front end (I'm assuming it was anyways) he will be see as at fault automatically unless you stand up and say it was your fault (which it wasn't)

So just make a claim with MPI, pay the deductible or whatever and get it fixed.
I'm pretty certain I won't be paying a deductible in this case. I explained my case and they said I shouldn't have to by the sounds of it
