Oh, and the guy I sold my Focus to got his car all fixed up now. He got in an accident and got a new bumper, fender, lights, grilles, radiator support, etc. Paint looks great, not a fan of the billet grilles he chose, but it's his car now and he's happy.

sounds like a wiring issue if it keeps jumping around and going away/coming back.

Well I still have my old proof of insurance from when I had insurance.. that's good until like August or September..





I won't tell if you don't..

And I noticed that I forgot to put my headlight bulb cap back on the last time I had it off.. and now it is laying somewhere around Watertown. Going to give Steve a call tomorrow. Need a new one of those, a centercap for my stock wheels, and the hood release cable/handle. Smh.

Ok so I probably won't be getting the car. Money not moving like it should be on top of it being stripped from my pockets.

I will try to give you a hand soon, I have a few projects that need to be finished here, but that should all be done in the next week or so. From the pics you had on that link, I see butt connectors, so there is a big problem right there. All of those connections should be soldered. I have a feeling something is corroded somewhere.

That'd be great. I've done my best so far to get things worked out myself, but I just can't get it. Those butt connectors were from the previous owner. Not sure if that's even close to where the problem is, but I know you have some nice electrical testers to help pinpoint the problem. Give me a call when you're free, I start working June 6th, but I will have days off.

Hey Happy Memorial Day people. Too bad I had to work all through memorial day weekend and today. on top of that the people who didn't work the weekend left early today...and I was the only person working Sunday. What the frick is going on in this place. I've never worked a day here where I didn't close. That's about 8 months of working until 7, 6, or 4. I'm so tired of this job and herring the short end every frickin time.

Don't feel bad. I've worked 3-11 Sat, Sun, and today. Although today is time and a half. So I can't complain too much. But still. It's so nice out. I could be getting tan!

Got another coat of primer on the wheels today, on the inside and the backs of the spokes. I'll have to go buy one more can of primer, just for some touch-ups, and they'll be all ready for paint. Which I'll do Thursday and Friday since I'm off. Then finish anything that needs finishing on Saturday morning. Woop woop.
