    Ok so tonight (4/17) I had the experience with something That I should have seen and I did 2 nights ago. On the drivers side there is the parking break. and well it sits right against the fender. Well if I took 2 seconds to look one more time I Would have seen it. While I'm grinding. I get to thinking: HHHMMMM isn't there something I need to be checking? NNAAAhh. Luckly I only cut 1/2 the way of the cable. So off to the Phone I RAN. Its going to take 2 days to get a new cable from Kragen Auto Parts. 25 bucks. (I hope they ordered the right part.)
    Eric (useyourblinker) You asked what I still had left to do before Hollister. Well this is it. Not that its going to be a big thing. BUT I know what I'm doing Friday Night.

    Any way You live and you learn thats what its all about. See Ya. Later KEN
