It is true, but that is how they learn.  My oldest (Currently In Basic Training) learned a lot about torc specs putting new bearings in his 80 F150 4x4.  You learn a lot when you have to do something twice, and costs you about 400$.

That is my favorite picture too!

Well it is more expensive at the beginning, but once they learn it will be cheaper.  Especially for a 17 year old that was working at McDonalds at the time!

At 18 I flushed and changed the anti-freeze in my first car, but lost the radiator cap in the process.  Went to the parts store, and bought a new one, not knowing that the caps are set with PSI settings.  So I got a 14 pound cap for a system that only needed 7-10 pounds.  A few weeks later I had the radiator out to the shop.  Now at 57 I still make mistakes, but have learned to ask as many question as possible first to help reduce mistakes.

You don't have to be young to make a mistake...
I was about 35 when my truck had a minor underhood fire.
At least, it was minor until I poured washer fluid on it to try and put it out.
That's how I found out washer fluid is mostly alcohol.
Firemen laughed their asses off when I told them what I did.

Picture flaming washer fluid (The whole gallon), and a drainage ditch full of dried-out cattails/reeds, which became a wall of fire 100+ feet long. All because of a cracked fuel return line.
Repaired the fuel line, changed spark plug wires, and drove home (No paint left on the hood though).

I  try to be organized, it doesn't matter, by the end of a project I am down to my last socket wrench and am trying to match metric sockets to standard bolts.  I usually find them all in clean up.

No video. Yep, cattails went up when the burning washer fluid ran into the ditch.
Worst part was, I knew half the firemen who responded to the call...
So, I got to tell them what I did, and got to hear about it for several years...
By the way, HOLY CRAP is that stuff flammable!!!

Well, it LOOKS like Windex, but it's really mostly colored alcohol.
So when you start to pour some on, and the fire gets worse, probably shouldn't pour the rest on in a panic.

How about a car photo? :-)

Got a set of 80's Grand Marquis / Crown Vic rims, put Hancook 225/70R15s on them, put them on the wagon. Zero fitment issues, same outside diameter as the original H87-14s within 0.7%.

Anyone know where I can find replacement centers? The chrome is in good shape, the plastic bit for the centers which unscrews from the back... not so much.
