Maybe Chevy was trying to copy the aerospace design where the passenger cabin is ejected before a crash?

Oh ****.... that sucks 2100. I hate how it snowballs when home repairs are going on. I've done a lot lately. After I posted that above I found that one of the bathroom sinks has a leaking seal on the ball valve for the drain plug deal. Pisses me off because that would have been included in today's repairs if I had seen it before the plumber left.

Are you going to scab that in or replace the whole floor?

Going to patch it in. The POs broke the flange bolt retainers so there's been a slight leak for who knows how long... which means MOLD! black mold that is. Luckily it was contained to just immediately around the toilet and a small spot next to the tub so I will just be patching the floor. Everything is solid. Learned my sink shut offs were broken so had to replace those and the vanity had water damaged so new vanity too which also means new countertop. The floors were very early 90s laminate so new flooring too (well that and I ripped it up lol).... a bathroom update was on our list before we sell the house in 2years just wasn't expecting right now.

However since the wife and I are now expecting a little one, I decided to "fix" that toilet and this is how I ended up. But with a new baby coming I am motivated to get rid of the mold and fix this right! Probably going to keep the wife happy and refloor our master bath and new counter top in there at the same time.

Congrats on the little one.... and good idea getting rid of that crap. There are a lot of repairs I go the extra mile on because I want my kids to be safe, around the house, and vehicles. To prevent any mold from happening under these sinks, I am going to put some vinyl down under there. The water has warped them, lol..... don't need mold now.

2100, congratulations on the new one on the way. It's too bad you have to repair things, but it's better for the newborn to have a mold free home. I give you kudo's on the repair.

Kd4, I'm thinking. lol That 150 blew that light bad, and both got totalled in the mishap. .Oh well. More parts for me down the road. LOL.
