Dropped my oldest son’s 2011 5.0 off finally for hail repair. It’s getting a new roof, hood and windshield as well as a bunch of PDR and paint work. He has been driving it around like this since Oct.

Wow! That must have been some good-sized hail! I had similar damage to one of my cars some years back. Multiple strikes! I knew a "Dent Wizard" friend who came out to repair them. It was labor intensive, but my insurance paid for the repairs. Once finished, I could not tell it had ever been damaged! Beautiful work, and amazing how they can totally remove the dents! Obviously, Nate did not inherit your OCD tendencies! You'd have been driven to have the dents repaired within days! Me too!

Tim, I posted my initial response and then it seemed to disappear from the thread, so I reposted a second response, assuming the original was gone. Then when I sent it, it posted both responses! WTF? I can't find a way to erase the initial post and leave the second one! Grrrrrr!

Complained to FedEx about a missing package. Supposedly delivered to my front door yesterday morning, but looking on my porch, sidewalk, driveway, and mailbox had nothing. WTF is with delivery people nowadays.

Fixed your dual-quote/dual-reply Mike. I have to fix it the same way you would… by clicking the 3 dots in the upper-right of your post then selecting “EDIT.”

It happens. I’ve had my packages delivered to my neighbors. It’s total chaos in the package delivery business right now. Too much shit getting shipped with not enough people willing to work.

That's just laziness and incompetence. Not too hard to verify the address. Especially when it's on the mailbox and house. If they're relying on GPS, then that's just stupid. The work ethic of this generation has gone to hell.

Not arguing, just providing a counter point…

The packages are overwhelming and non-stop! The employees that do go to work are running at 110%. I’m burned out and so are most others.

Oh, this isn't the first package to be lost in the last 12 months. Had a shipment of supplements apparently delivered next door. No idea what the neighbors or real estate agent did with it (house was in the process of being sold at the time), but it never made it to my house.
Explains why the people have started accepting a poorly run government tho, nobody expects things to be done right. Being OK that it happens is part of the problem.
Somehow I think if you're supposed to fly to Chicago and you go to Cleveland by mistake that that may be less acceptable.

Thanks, Tim. I did exactly that. Went to the upper R. corner clicked on edit and backspaced the first message away. Then went back and it was still there! What's the procedure to delete a message? I'm obviously missing some step.

Spent all day working with my buddy @LivinEZ on his 2020 base model GT500. He got some carbon fiber wheels. “Just swap the wheel studs” they say… EIGHT+ hours later and a crap ton of battle damage on the hands/body, we won the war! 😴 Video to follow eventually.

@03reptile, don’t forget to click “save” after editing.

Gave a friend of mine congrats after UGA upset Alabama last night. College football doesn't do anything for me, but he's a cool dude, and massively hungover after the celebrations.

Washed the CFTP from getting it dirty on our Jan 1 Shelby cruise. The 2011 needs a wash as well. Also received a Christmas present today and gave it a go filling all of the Cobra tires. It works like a champ!

I have one of these but a Craftsman brand, I got mine as a gift too! I keep it in the trunk of my Shelby. The dewalt one looks like it has more features and I like how the battery attaches on your dewalt vs the craftsman I have which mounts on the side instead of the bottom.

Just finished washing the 2011. It hasn’t seen a bucket and hose in years! Now both Shelbys are as clean as the Cobras.

I don't feel so bad now haven't wash the Shelby since the Jan 1 cruise, but I did have the oil changed and track alignment done today.

I haven’t been home. I left early the next morning.

So TX Track Works was able to get your pins out and successfully give you a track alignment today?

Glad my video helped Kevin. I got your alignment slot… much appreciated! They didn’t have any openings prior to my next COTA event!
