Magic Protective Gloves?


Devilish_02

Recommended Posts

Devilish has been running great except for one little tweak that needed to be made to the carb jets. However, when I fixed the jets, the fuel line seemed off. Then I fixed the fuel line and one of the headlights began to flicker. I fixed the headlight which reminded that I should probably adjust the fan belt. Fan belt starts with F as does fuses so I was replacing all of them when it hit me. The only constant in each of these equations is me. I touch the car to fix one thing and a second one pops up. Even when everything on the car is perfect, my hand finds it’s way to a computer mouse to order that one last part that will be the cherry on top, but it never is.

 

I wouldn’t say it is an issue, but my girlfriend left me and I need to let my son know he no longer needs to worry about going to college because I am buying a couple of project cars, so figured the least I could do was post here for advice. 
 

Has anyone discovered protective gloves that allow you to work on your car that enable you to just do one thing and be done with it? Preferably one that also blurs the numbers on your credit cards?


I am definitely interested, just as soon as I get through this weekend’s punch list. 😃

Combining the gentleness of a wet wipe with the convenience of a glove, the hygienic fragrance free gloves are ideal for daily body cleansing without rinse.

Rubs some of the motional pain away.

 

Not many tasks could be done with these so nothing will escalate. Also using internet & pushing ”buy it now” are pretty much out of hands.

Yes, but you also need the rose colored glasses that let you see every rolling turd

as this 'amazing' vehicle that needs 'just a few weekends' to restore to 'minty' condition.

 

Minty.  Mmmmmm.

The thermostat in the E46 needed a new heater.  Replaced that.  Then the upper hose leaked.

Replaced that. Then the expansion tank leaked. Replaced that.  Now the Mahle/Behr/Chinesium radiator

leaked.  Replaced that.  THEN the lower hose felt left out, and it started leaking.  Replaced that.

All for a heater that opens the thermostat whenever I go hooniganning.  I need those gloves, too.

LOL...that isn't scope creep.  those are all just part of the every 50k miles required cooling system maintenance on all POS E46's....

My friends here deep in the Caribbean suggest the followings:

 

buy a black chicken, kill it leave either on the railroad tracks or at a 4 comer intersection. Put it in a bag with old coins, nails, and sulphur.

 

Then wait for the magic to happen.

 

Haitian brujos (witch doctors) are said to be best at these things.

To bring this thread back to the serious side (yeah imagine me doing that) the best way to bring a project back from the dead is to pick a system at a time IE brakes or fuel system and go through it all before moving on to the next one, this way each system will be sorted and you can move on.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
