Par for the course

The bumps, bruises and cuts just seem to come with the job. After years of playing around the sharp edges, I (and my wife) have gotten used to it. In fact, it's almost a little like "Tim the toolman". I have to admit though, that the front sub-frame mount job was one of the few larger jobs I've done with out getting a single bump, bruise or scratch. The only thing I can attribute it to is I proceeded very slowly. I usually try to knock out a job quickly and I think that the 'speed' may be at least partly responsible.

While **it happens from time to time, I'm going to try this slower approach on my next repair I kinda like not having to heal .
