Welcome to your Friday Morning FYI (I’m late because I’ve been fighting f*cking torx bolts since Thursday edition) – my chance to share observations/wisdom/rants in short, easily consumed form.
In case you didn’t know, summer has popped here in the north east. As a fall/winter guy, normally I’d be unhappy about that, but I’ve been waiting for it to get warm ever since I bought my jeep late last year. The long weekend seemed the perfect time to take the doors off and the roof down, but the makers of my jeep had a dark surprise for me, named LockTite, which holds the torx nuts in place unless you’re friggin Superman (who’d still probably strip the damn things trying to get them out). I’m sure the folks at Jeep have a fine reason for using LockTite, but for those of us who just want to take our doors off (the problem is relocating the side mirrors), it’s a royal pain. That leads us to this week’s FYI:
Good intentions only get you so far. In everything you do, you must also consider the consequences, especially when others are involved.
Thanks for reading,
PS – If you think I’m being dramatic about some stupid bolts, you’re right. Go try and work them yourself and tell me how it goes 🙂
