Re: How hot was it today where YOU live?! (Hi Alt R)

We "only" got to 89 in MA yesterday. It's very hard to put your emergency brakes back together with sweat pouring into your eyes.

Re: How hot was it today where YOU live?! (VolvokidS60R)

I feel for you kid. I usually put off any work like that in the summer, use spring or fall to do it, but hey...how about a heat wave in APRIL?!?!? wtf?<p>The e-brake job was a bit of a beeatch. Driver's side went fine, but the passenger side took some serious bludgeoning to get the rotor off and the adjuster came out of the cable attachment when I was messing with it. I had to leave it for the next day to put back together. Ran out of time and daylight and had to make dinner. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> Went back together just fine, aside from the sweat.
