I got pissed off and picked up a 12 pack of bud and some swisher sweets. Not smart when you are using a torque. But hey, at least I didn't blow myself up

My worst torch story goes like this..I was scrapping a 96 cobra so I was salvaging the front brakes. I was trying to cut through the A arm but the lower ball joint got so hot and built up with pressure, it blew apart. I was deaf in my ear for about 15 min. It was loud is all I can say.

Don't burn yourself up again. You've got a bad history with hot metal.

I'm holding off on parts for awhile. I got a lot on my plate right now. But if you want, I made a few deals with a guy from LR and can probably cut you a deal on some things you need since I've dealt with him a few times.

It's always funny when I start a project thinking I'll be done in a certain amount of time, that never happens. Parts break then you gotta shop for best price then wait for shipping. But it's damn close now
