Didn't mean to give the impression I lived in one of these houses. I live in an apartment on the corner of a street with some very stately older homes but I certainly am not wealthy enough to live in one of them. I park in front of them though.
It's kind of funny I live in a broom closet. Have to sleep standing up and my bathroom ceiling leaks so I gotta open an umbrella to take a dump. Really good digs are expensive here. Average digs are expensive here. And finally- *****ty digs are expensive here. If you knew about DC rents you'd understand. I'll keep this car for a good long time I just hope the money stops hemorraging and I can effect a positive on my personal wealth index for a change. May be out of the shop tomorrow, some more stuff addressed. Taking a trip to the world's biggest flea market this weekend! All manner of junk and crap and deep fried snickers bars and who knows what else.
onward

Besides the price tag, how was the service at RC's? Based on Alan Hamm's suggestion in a previous post, I am taking mine to Mitch Carr's in kensington tomorrow.

Just to keep it in "good health", I always use my parking brakes.

Service is good at RC, with a quick turnaround.

Yeah Those aluminium lines are probably corroded onto the steel cooler by now. They won't rust but two dissimiler metals will corroded together very nicely. Chances are the steel fittings will take the threads off the cooler. If you can get a good tourch on it and heat them up real hot you might be able to get them apart. I'd say their is a 50/50 shot of them coming apart.

MB now uses aluminium fittings on the lines at least.

Exactly, is called Galvanic action. Works with any two dissimular metals. Good luck getting it appart.
