God damn you safety.
 
So I failed the safety today for the following:

no passanger side windshield washer spray
broken heater blower (no defrost)
drivers rear floor is too rusty (weak, but not through the car)
left control arm bushing has too much play
no spare tire

These all seem reasonable things to fail a car for?

No, that's completely reasonable to be angry and rabble.

MaxBell 05-08-2012 10:38 AM

No you're supposed to get angry with me and rabble!!

El Gato Liso 05-08-2012 10:39 AM

and thats why you buy a safety with e30s :)

everlast 05-08-2012 10:40 AM

What? Ur making no sense. :)

MaxBell 05-08-2012 10:48 AM

Everlast, you buy an E30s...while a safety. :)

Ask him if you replace the CAB, will he let the rest slide? It all seems kinda nit-picky, but you can't really blame the guy for wanting to cover his ass. Unless you drive it in the winter, in which case having a working blower is pretty important, lol.

Or, get yourself "a guy"

Ninja edit ftw lol.

Where do I find myself "a guy". And it's summer only.

everlast 05-08-2012 10:53 AM

I think you'd still want to have heat. Defrost is required quite a bit, even in the summer.

Pm'd

surely one of your Ottawa Max buddies must have "a guy"

MaxBell 05-08-2012 11:04 AM

I know of one "a guy", but too many people screwed him over so he stopped. Very recently unfortunately.

broken heater blower (no defrost) - no defrost? So what does this mean... No air blows at the window or no heat? Or no rear window defroster?

drivers rear floor is too rusty (weak, but not through the car) - Buy a can of POR 15 and go to work, in some cases a few coats on each side will be enough to strengthen it. I extreme cases if it's really bad just cut out the spot and pop rivet (or weld) a piece of metal in there and POR 15 over it all on both sides... this is a saturday afternoon job that might cost $60 if you don't have any materials or tools to work with.

• small POR kit $35
• Pop rivet gun $15 (seen on at princess auto for $8, comes with rivets)
• some paint brushes and supplies from the dollar store $5
• some old bit of metal, or buy a sheet of bodywork metal at CDN tire for $8-12
• You need a drill with the correct size drill bit for the rivet.

left control arm bushing has too much play - $20 - 30 and an hour. (can be a bitch, might need a propane torch)

no spare tire - find one for 20$
