changed my radiator today after much fighting with the old one trying to get it out. i figured it was time to get a new one because im bored of driving with the windows open and the heater on full trying to keep the engine cool :lol:

i hate working on cars! :mad: constantly bashing hands on sharp edges, broken bolts and grazed knuckles. my hands are torn to schit! :(

sympathies please ;)

You have my sympathies, all machines are sharp or as I found out today sharp & hot, working on a machine that is filled with water heated to 105 degrees C, if it isn't sharp its hot or sometimes just for the fun of it both :mad:

Gaz, the best thing to do is have a bath after you finish. The scratches and scrapes show up more afterwards, and you can often get sympathy from other family members. :D
