    Brake Wear Indicator

    Thanks for your thoughts on the brakes. I will likely be addressing this in the next two weeks once the paycheck comes in.

    Carpet Removal and Replacement

    I was trying to help my sick outdoor cat by having a vet appt to save it from being put to sleep. In the process of bring it home, it sprayed or should I say "pee-d" inside my lovely 1999 four door Explorer XLT V-8. Apparently no good deed goes unpunished. I can't stand the smell- either the...
