So i got my header back from the powdercoating place today, (ceramic coated)Went to remove my old manifold off the celi and was torq'in on the down pipe and what happens?..the rachet brakes = busted knuckles and split my arm wide open on the heat shield. Ouch much?..yes indeed :thumbsdow

This is why you use a non-ratcheting breaker bar sir.

Ouch. I think I broke my finger at work last night. It was jammed between a solid object and around 1000 moving pounds. I haven't been able to move it since. I have it taped to me other finger at the moment. Typing is a bitch right now!

I have a 2 and a half foot not ratcheting breaker bar that I used to do the exhaust on Mudhoney. It was a tight fit, but it worked.

Great tooth filling as well if you break a tooth. The nerve is what hurts, cover it and it stops hurting.

Hehe, Murg knows what's up.

"Crazy Glue" was originally devised by the US military as a quick fix for GI's on the field. Works great.

Yeah It's true, one time I cut my hand bad on fiberglass at school (it gets sharper than you think) and I went to the emergency room because any time you get hurt at school you have to and they just superglued my finger back together.

Proof ! woot.
I've done the superglue thing a ton of times for cuts and lacerations. love it. No hospital bill ($$$$$$+arm+leg=f**ked)

I dunno if any of yall have seen those "Liquid band-aids" but for all intents and purposes its just an overly expensive variant of superglue.

...Update...

I was working on the car today. I sliced my other middle finder open with a flathead screwdriver. I wasn't done working just yet (Trying to get it all done this week), so I taped it with painters tape and continued to work. Now with both hands messed up my typing is suffering.
