yeah, i've had quite a few bogus claims about 'leaky rear brake cyls' or 'the clutch is running out of travel & needs a clutch kit installed'

i actually lol'd when i was told that about the clutch!

I brought my Mustang in for an inspection sticker once, and the kid said you need new front wheel bearings we have to replace them or you'll fail inspection.

I proceeded to pull the receipt for two new wheel bearings which I had bought a few hours before and replaced out of my pocket, and said stop messing around and give me my sticker they're brand new. The guy's jaw hit the floor. I was so mad.

yeah, never liked inspections before...

but the shear number of people around here with brake lights out is phenomenal. that is one thing that might actually be improved by bringing the inspection sticker requirement back to oklahoma.

Whenever I don't want to fix something my excuse to the wife is...I have 30 years to pay for it, I have 30 years to fix it......lol That usually goes over like the Zepplin.

Checking in fellas. Being bored at work.
Good to see y'all making progress with your homes. I hate doing any type of house remodeling or repairing.
