  • So an opportunity popped up with a really good find, so I went and bought it for $500!!! This really shows you what you can do to find your first project car, find a budget suv, etc with minimal risk and a lot of potential reward!!! We used all common hand tools and did this job at home ourselves! Craftsman was bought by Stanley and now they have decent tools for the price! Worth taking a look at for sure! I messed with the 150 piece set for the first time and I liked it. It got the job done and I think you guys looking for your first set would find it to be a good starter set! Here is the link to the tool sets:

  • Me and my dad dropped the fuel tank in a 2005 Trailblazer Extended Cabin, and it was pure pain [did it in Winter, so it was very cold]. We didn't have those nice ol ramps you got there, so we did it in our drive way with 2 car jacks, we were replacing the fuel pump because it had gone bad, and right when we got it back up, he tried starting the car and fuel just went everywhere, so we had to drop it *again* and reseal the fuel pump. It took about 6 hours to do it

  • Good job negotiating down to $500, because you can imagine what Duh Chevy Stealership would've told the former owner when they saw that MELTED fuel system and disintegrated muffler... probably would've told him he needed new catalytics and O2 sensors as well... "she's FRIED, $4,785 will get her back on the road Mr. Sucker!..."

  • Bought $400, Ranger p/u. Drove the crap out of it for 4 years, only changed the oil filter & reused old synthetic oil from other cars for it. Only junkyard parts, used battery, spray can paint job, rebuilt carb, only new cheapy clutch & sold it for $950. Guy thought it was super cool looking with all black trim, grill, wheels, bumpers, lettering on tailgate & white body. Super dependable, hauled everything.

I've tried so many things to get it running but just can't figure it out, even after replacing obvious stuff like completely severed vacuum lines. I love that car and just can't bring myself to part with it! :( I keep thinking one of these days I'll figure it out. I think it might be the tensioner. I won't get rid of my Mark until I at least try replacing the tensioner.

  • No idea how this popped up in my recommended but i have to pay respects. Instead of just saying the facts and showing what you did, you put a lot of effort into explaining WHY you do the things you do and furthermore, even show the thought process behind making these decisions, which can be applied to a wider range of objects and not just a few use cases. Showing people how to think. You're a frickin hero man, keep it up.
