I cant believe it was THAT easy!!!!!!

I am saying this over and over and over again every time I do something that I have dreaded or lost sleep over...once I do it I say..."I can't believe it was that easy.". Today is another one of those days. My hood seemed like it would never line up properly. It looked like it wasnt closed, bounced, I couldnt seem to get the hood low enough to match the lines of the car. So I walked into the garage, looked at it and opened the hood. Then it dawned on me. LOL...wow. Its not closing with the rollers on the ends, its in the CENTER of the hood where it latches. OK...wow...seems like its not being pulled down enough when it latches. Hmm...maybe this cable isnt tight enough...Hey looks like too much slack on my hood latch cable! Let me adjust that. BAM...hood now comes down too low! Now adjust the sides so its the right height and BAM...job done...lol...wow....I have lost HOURS of sleep wondering wy the damn hood never lined up with the car. Oh and then I fixed that annoying gas pedal rattle with a simple piece of clear tube over the metal on the accelerator. Another amazingly simple fix!

Good job!

There's a nylon bushing that slips over the gas pedal rod. They wear out ;-)

Also Mike Self has some special "slippery tape" that can be installed on the pedal.

Cheers,
