'Daily Rant Thread' 2015
« on: November 12, 2015, 07:51:00 PM »
Im on a couple other forums besides this one.
I make it a rule not to post advice/help unless I know darn well that what Im saying is correct to the best of my knowledge.
It drives me absolutly crazy some of the crap people post that is just plain wrong.
And being the non keyboard warrior that Iam, I wont just post up that so and so is wrong and here is the proof, because it always starts a slinging match.
And it seems to be the same people every time.

My rant is that by the time I get around to reading the rant thread, it's been cleaned up and I miss half the entertainment.

Are flies all attracted to lawn mowers?
Mowing the lawn yesterday I was inundated by flies as soon as I started the mower.
They hung around like politicians to a free feed until I stopped the mower when they all disappeared.

I must have swallowed at least 10.....................yuk

I've been trying to track down a light clunk in the front of the jeep for a month or two.

A couple of times, I thought I had found it, as I tightened up every bolt known to mankind on the Jeep.

Last week, the right hand lower ball joint pulled the ball out of the socket as the old girl backed out of our driveway.  :o

The worst part is, we REPLACED ALL 4 BALL JOINTS in august 2013.

I would have thought that 2 years and 40,000 klm would be a bit light huh.

Thank christ it dropped the ball joint on the driveway and not adoing  a 100 k's scooting through the the twisty bits out in the  back blocks..
But yeahh I'd be a bit miffed at it dropping the ball joint at all ... Thats the type of thing youd expect an old dunger thats done a million miles of rough back country roads to do ..
Did it pull the pin out of the guts of the joint  Kev ?  ..OEM part or  aftermarket bit   or was it the whole joint out of the lower arm ..
Were they replaced in 2013 under this recall notice https://www.chrysler.com/universal/webselfservice/pdf/F23.pdf  I'd be going back if they were ..

Getting a call from the missus to inform me some a hole has ripped both mirrors of the Pajero! Not the only one.  A few cars in the carpark got touched up.

Same.  I'd be peeved if someone nicked them for their own use, but to destroy them for no apparent reason peeves me off even more.

They're about $100ea 2nd hand, or $150 new aftermarket, but a pay about a $20 premium cause they're the chrome Exceed ones.  Haven't seen the car yet, so hopefully something is salvageable.


I tried to lighten the mood and said to the missus "I'm surprised you noticed them missing"

Didn't go down too well.

So I requested pics of said damage.  Shes currently away on a girls weekend.

It seems the mirror fairies have come along since and reinstalled the mirrors.

Yes, someone did tamper with the mirrors.... they folded them in! Along with a few other cars and I'm tipping the cars that didn't get messed with had auto folding mirrors.

Apparently  things look allot different at 4am when walking back to your motel room while wearing a very thick set of 'wine goggles'
