  9. Thanks Lorin it has been a smiling day, rare these days, I did not chat but lots of little things I have done I am sure because of hit, but looking at those items as tough enough? Example I went to Eddie that does welding and in front of my audi muffler pipe had come loose so fixed/welded and raised up and tighten the exh pipes, shook her everywhere, now getting fuel sending unit and going to take power and ground there since it will be exposed, maybe a tank cleaning also?, also my speaker covers came off ... no where to be found, ordered pair today hope they fit ... so it is getting happy happy (as Emeril Lagasse says) .... and me also tks ...Lucian
