its always fun to bring your bumper home in your backseat
that fender was the only section of the car that had a gloss to it
babys got back.... and my favorite part, the snapped in two tie rod... at least my guess was right! so this is what ill be cruzin for the next few days..... the steering is great in it....only 5 feet of play in the steering wheel
Well it was snowing last night, and on my way home after work (nice little 13 hour shift, on 3 hours of sleep) i was cruizin down the road i live on and went around a small corner and next thing i know im offroading in a fuckin' BMW! went over a little ditch at about 30mph in between a telephone pole and a tree, clipped a fire hydrant and ran straight into.. straight dead on into another tree. GREAT
So I got out and assessed the damage....first I had to pull my bumper out from underneath my car, then I wandered around and picked up the various pieces of trim and plastic covers. put the bumper in the back seat and threw it in reverse, no big deal. UNTIL I get back onto the road and my left front wheel wouldn't steer. So I hit the brakes and im setting in the road across both lanes haha. back it up some more hit the brakes and the right wheel was still steering so i could hit the brakes and slide the direction i wanted to go. it was a fun ride home..... im guessing i snapped the left tie rod, ill find out tomorrow, and get some pics up.
Hopefully that's the works mechanical damage there is. the doghouse is all fucked up not sure about the radiator or anything else yet. 3am isn't the best time to work on your car. ill get some pics up tomorrow. as of now it looks like I may be driving the truck for a while............................... but it could always be worse
my brothers first Harley.... a shitty 74 ironhead that had a "bad ass" custom soap bubble paint job.......it was a piece of shit and i don't think he ever rode it more than 7.2 miles without it giving him problems......they only time he didnt have a problem with it was when he sold it to a lawyer for 3 grand
