  • Shotdiff and Aussie...

    Thanks for your help a few weeks ago. Once I got my car home ($244 tow!!!) i took a look at things the next day, wiped off some grime and could see clearly where the the stainless braining of the cable had been rubbing up against the wheel well. Sure enough, the braiding had worn through and exposed the hose, which split of course.

    Called a local stealership to find their price for a replacement hose and they wanted $119. For ONE. ONE FRIGGIN HOSE. Got on the phone to BAT Inc and ordered a new pair of stainless hoses and some slide pins for next day delivery (which was actually going to be shipped Monday, and this was on a Friday afternoon) total was $155. Oh yeah, got new bushings for the slide pins and new caliper springs as well. I was on the road Wednesday.

    Turns out what I thought was leaking was just another random hole. Master cylinder, booster and etc were all fine. The reservoir was still half full when I got it home.

    So glad that hose didn't go out when I was doing 70 down one of the busy Seattle freeways. I have been busy, so this is the first chance I had to post. Well, mostly. Packing up to move down to Pacific now, so just wanted to let you two know.

    Thanks again.

    No problem. You can call me anytime.

    When are you moving? What is Pacific?

    We should get together before you disappear from the NW. You know, see you off microbrew style!

        Hey--you'll have to keep us posted of the move date so we can send you off like Shotwell suggested.

          Pacific is off of hwy 167 just south of Auburn. Now, if I can get Mike and David to move down south and Aussie to come up north, maybe we could have some more frequent get-togethers.

            Ding ding ding, we have a winner. I am moving maybe 15 miles or less from where i live now.

            So no massive relocation, but i am going to be busy working for quite a while. I make no promises about when I can make a meet again.

                Ya, but how many of those people have actually come to a meet in the last two years? Less than half.

                We should have more meets though. I'd come to most of them!

                      I drive all day long for work, and I don't mind a drive...it is just trying to find the time.

                      Right now I have to find a new home for my dog Brewser. I had to move suddenly and was unable to find a place for both of us in time. I had arranged for him to stay with a friend, but my friend's dog took an immediate dislike to Brewser and didn't get over it. Trying to find a good temporary home for a 4 and a half year old APBT is a pain in the ass.

                      Look him in the eye...
