Ya never know one day they or one of them may be standing there watching the BF or Husband doing something you taught them about in that range of fields and be saying "Dummy Your doing that all wrong"...

They may have followed their own path in career choice... but I doubt they weren't paying attention... my daughter is going to school to be a nurse but she does do some of her own car repairs and tune-up... not that she wants to but can and will do it especially when she's trying to prove something to the opposite.

Well turns out not so done after the alignment there was still a little
vibration. Jesse suspected the engine mounts. So this past weekend
I changed out the engine mounts. The two on top were not that bad
but the 'anti-roll mount' was clearly the bad actor, a good 3/4"
movement with it. But as always not quite done yet I have a slow leak
in the rear pass. side tire...

Well now that everything is done; I put 150 miles on it rides like the
day I drove it off the lot. Ready for the Neal to Nashville or bust trip.

Yep, some times I think I'm done with something and find out well nope not so.
Guess it's the nature of T-N-Tiers

will pray that when you go on your trip, you will have a Fun, enjoyable and safe journey on the Neal to Nashville trip Ron.
Glad to hear the problem solved and ready to stretch out some miles.
