In my case it was the car I did up for my wife, spent over 3 years doing it, being a uni-body I had to strip it completely so I could put it on a rotisserie to replace most of the floor pan. After it was all back together took it for a test drive and discovered that the transmission (manual) needed rebuilt. Back to the shop to pull the engine and transmission, then another few months sourcing parts before getting it back on the road.

Overcome, adapt and carry on.
I have done this correctly more than a few times. The last (does this qualify as a "senior" moment?) Whole front of the car supported by the engine pull rig hanging in the air.


A break, a beer (ice tea for me) and a thought - "Um - I bet..."

I forgot to remove the wish-bone retainer and release it from the front axle.

It helps following written instructions - sometimes.
