If you can't fix it with a hammer, It must be electrical.

Congrats, George!   beerdude
This car is a pile of crap. Noisy, rattly, slow and underpowered and has a reputation for being unreliable. I want one.

Well, so far so good. I'm one of 3 techs that do regular service, and the other two guys seem pretty competent. The guy I'm training with has already said he's gonna miss me when I get my own truck. Says it is so refreshing to work with someone who actually knows what the heck is going on. (Apparently he's trained big-in-word-only techs so he was leery of me at first).
Finding the full time grind to be tough, though. Getting in and out of those vaulted ceiling attics is proving to be a challenge. Got the knowledge, got the desire, just don't have all the "gear" I used to have. Spirit is willing but the body is weak sort of thing. Going to have to Macgyver something to allow me to get into those high places. And I'm reacquainting myself with heating pads and muscle liniment!

Bought this stuff for aftershave, but found out it's original purpose (and still popular today) was for skin and muscle ailments. Tried it on my knees - gotta say I was surprised it actually helps some! Any of you suffering from sore muscles or achy joints might want to give it a try.

Glad to hear BM -- experience and a good attitude always rises to the top of the heap.

I hear you on the "muscle aches" -- I'm not comparing it to the trades (which are often horrible on older joints), but the other day I had to stand for 5 hours behind a podium giving a presentation. On the way out I could hardly get down the stairs because my right knee was in such terrible shape. I will try the Superior 70 lotion to see if it helps a bit.

It is amazing how much muscle mass you can lose when you quit doing certain things daily and then they are sore when you start back up. This alcohol will cure what ails you at the moment but you feel worse in the morning. pukey
