Steve just finished a big car project. He lowered his Volkswagen TDI Sportswagen a few years ago in Florida and loved it but now that he is driving his truck and Helen will be driving the Sportswagen most of the time, he wanted to raise it back up so she wouldn't have to worry about speed bumps and entries into car parks etc., so he started the job at 0830 the other morning in our driveway as we have shade and his driveway is rather steep.
Back to the original springs.....the shocks are new.
Sun moved so the car moved partway into the garage. By this time it was mid-afternoon. DH supervising in the background. I bet your garage doesn't have two chairs and a small table inside. lol
But he is not one to quit and so he persevered and got the job done.
Sunday we all loaded up and went to the flea market for a little entertainment as well as a test drive under load. ha. All went well.
Today he spent all afternoon at the Volkswagen dealer waiting for them to do an alignment. Then off to the tire dealer for new tires. Hmmm....it worked great going to the dealer......after the alignment, it pulled strongly to the right. Hold on the tires.
Call from Steve to his Dad tonight. He did some more checking after he got home. It seems there is a problem with the springs. He'll be over first thing in the morning (much earlier than our first thing) to redo part of the job. He is nothing but persistent.
On a more exciting note, I am getting the RV and heading out this week. Okay, it's just a long weekend but I am having withdrawal symptoms and so are the Traveling Longdogs. The kids and grandkids will join us partway through. DH will be working and wouldn't want to come along anyway. Let the fun begin (later in the week).
