Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I painted my red 2002 Liberty as a flag using blue and white poster paints. It lookedsimilar to this one, but my stripes were straight, not wavy (at least not until I drove it in the Woodward Avenue Dream Cruise)

"Look, Grandpa's car still has a steering wheel!" Funny, but ultimately a very sad story. I hope it is a lot way off before we get there. Driver operational interfaces are tough to get just right. I'm sure there are manufacturers who would just as soon move along and get past having to sp...

The flywheel had surface cracks, the pressure plate was heat damaged and the clutch disk was very worn. The clutch fork was worn and the throwout was noisy. Eve...
