So against my desire to change due to the fact of how good my car drives at speed, I took on the job of cutting off the existing rear shock mounts where they attach to the frame rail. I have all day in cutting and grinding. I was totally dirty disgusting. So I walk in the house and the wife put up a brand new white shower curtain. You could hear her scream all the way down the street that there was a dirty hand print on HER new shower curtain. Guess I am in the doghouse. Birdtracker

Is this a new wife or something? Seems like the racecar in the garage would be a good clue to never make anything like that white lol.

I hear stories like that from friends about what they did to get their honey bun to turn into a Honey Badger. I remember a friend telling us he could not go out for the weekend because he was being MADE to replace the carpet in his house after tracking in oily foot prints in. Another friend told me of a time when his love was so made that he had put powder coat stuff in the kitchen oven, he had to go drive to his brothers place to spend the night (he lived 2 hours from him). I did stuff like this as a kid and got an ear full from mom, but know better in my old age because I have to clean up my own messes.

Hope you survive the night and wake the next morning.

Now I kind of lucked out with my wife as she was already broken in when I met her. My father-in-law was a fabricator,welder,car builder ,and painter all his life so she watched her mom deal with all car dirt stuff. He used to paint cars in the attached garage and the whole house smelled like a body shop for days. The only request from the wife is "dont use the white towels to dry your hands off"

Buddy of mine thought it would be a great idea to use his wife's dishwasher to clean his Q-Jet after it came out of the soak bucket.

She was not amused. Cost him a new dishwasher.

moparracer I think that's exactly what I did.I looked at it and there was a black hand print. That's my best defense. Birdtracker
