This last summer was one of the best. Woman driving a minivan with 3 small kids. She's talking on the phone with her left hand and resting her elbow on the window.

As I'm driving along the freeway at 70mph (posted limit) she came from an on ramp and slowed to merge behind me. (The law). I check my other mirror and check traffic ahead because there's a lot of merging going on.

All of a sudden she mashes the gas and tries to pass me on the right as her merging lane is ending. As I look back over to check my mirror I see her "expletive deleted" just about to take a dive under my front axle...I lay on the brakes and whale on the horn...she didn't even notice when I was 6 inches from her bumper. It was a pretty close one. I almost wished she was alone so I could have let Karma have at her.

Ran the harness for my fog lights.

Also started removing parts I want to put on my Ranger from my sisters 94 Explorer that's getting scrapped. Brake lines are completely shot. BTW, if there's anything you guys may want from it PM me. OHC, auto dim mirror, and dash bezel are spoken for lol.

Yeah, I think so. Wouldn't recommend it to people who take sharp corners like they're a NASCAR driver.

Found out what was rattling around in my driver side door. The window guide bracket broke of at the welds and the guide fell off. Drilled the bracket and the guide and reattached it with heavy pop rivets. Almost as good as new and no more rattle!

Fixed my bucking at certain speeds today with a new TPS, duct-taped my door gasket back onto passenger door, tightened the latch so it wont rattle when hitting bumps, and found some grey clips to fasten a couple interior pieces back on Now if it was only 30 degrees warmer....
