Re: Elbow bolts

Unless you pry on the elbow and break the seal between the head, gasket, and elbow you will not have a leak by removing one bolt to attach the horn bracket. Everything is "welded" together by the paper gasket and any sealer used to attach the gasket. If it does weep a little it will stop when you re...

I thought Sebastian wore thigh-high leather boots so his legs don't get chafed when he pole dances on the brass pole at Ernie's Place. After a few Happy Sally's he was ready to go! :o :o

Re: New Rig

This is a real license plate that a lady had for 10 years until someone in the license dept thought it was not proper and should be removed. The case went to the governor of the state and he replied that she has had it for 10 years and she can keep it.

I haven't done this (yet) but would it be possible to remove the pins, weld the hole shut, and re-drill to the original size pin?
