Lol, not really. more like a normal day in my garage. but one hell of a day thats fersure. haha. Started when i got a call from my friend at like 11am saying. Hey! We should cut the springs on my mustang today. So i was like keeewwlll, something to do. haha! So he comes over around 1 and we get started. Kinda forgot to take any pics untill after we got the first spring out. but oh well!

Then thought to my self. OMG THE PIZZA! (See, i had put a few slices in the toaster like 20 min ago) And i hate burnt food. but it was just crispy enough to be amazing! Hahah!

Mini Tech Day 030

Back to cars. the spring was stuck, so we grabbed the hammer!

Once again, another shot taken out of boredom

Mini Tech Day 034

This is when the day went to hell. I was rolling my car out of the garage so i could jump start it. I had the door open so i could push it with my foot, and by the time i looked back and grabbed the door to shut it, it was too late. the door hit the ladder and then the window and glass went EVERYHWERE!!!!!!!!!!! Like everywhere. it was crazzzzy

Pulled the car out so i could clean up the mess

Mini Tech Day 037

This was only like half of it too.

Mini Tech Day 038

Well i got over that and went back to the mustang. In all that chaos nick somehow slapped the passenger side together and let it down. i gotta say it sits nice.

Then as if the s13 wasnt already annoying me today. Took it for a spin. and BAM!!! Some crazy noise, and the car isnt moving. It wouldnt move in any gear. I look under it thinking maybe it was the driveshaft. everything looks fine. so i go to roll it down a hill, and CLUNK CLUNK! Something hits the undeaneath of the car. at this point i was convinced it was the driveshaft. i look under the car and there it is, lying on the ground. so i pull it to the side of the road super slow as the drive shaft drags along the asfault. i walk back to where it first broke, and find 4 broken fender bolts. I was like WTF?!?!?! Are u kidding me. who ever had the car before me held the driveshaft together with fucking fender bolts. *WTF FACEPALM* Luckily it was just that and not the driveshaft it self. So i walked back home, grabbed some bolts i had lying around (extras from the like 500 i bought for the exhaust) drove over there, threw 2 bolts in then coasted it to my neighbors down the street, and borrowed their jack and put the other bolt in there and tightened it up the best i could. After that i made it home easily. but imma have to get some grade 8 bolts for that now. lol.

a pic of the stupid fender bolts.

K. Enough problems!!! Time to finish up the mustang.


Cut the rear's and slapped it back together!!!


Drove it back to his house, and were done for the night!


So the day had its problems, and hard times. but what ever. it turned out good. so the s13 broke, i'd wrather the drive shaft break here then on the real road some time or something. and the window, what ever. no biggie. I already found a cheap replacment. haha.
