Working on cars

Am I the only one who drinks beer when I'm in the garage working on the mustang or is that a situation that everyone says beer and cigarettes go together?

Beer goes with everything, especially working in the garage!

I don't think beer goes well with driving though.

I put the duplicate thread to bed.

I prefer a pitcher of iced sweet tea when I'm tweaking my suspension.

Same here. The test drives get interesting...I have noticed friends learn how to help after i've had 6 or so because I stop paying attention to details...at least they learn.

My favorite story was pulling a dry kit off a friend's truck and installing a wet kit. Put in 150 jets and sprayed a 15# bottle that night. Pulled the 4L****ty the next weekend. After a few beers you stop caring what it will hold. Probably would have installed bigger jets if I had them with me that night.

On that note that's probably why my brake caliper came off on the cobra...

There's usual a beer involved. Lost, (just like most of my tools) getting warm because I can't seem to remember where I set it down....

I'm pretty sure sharpies were invented for that specific reason.

When I'm just doing some basic cleaning or really easy stuff like the oil I'll drink some beers. Drinking a lot of alcohol when you need to make sure something important is installed correctly or torqued to the right spec or if you're working with the car on jackstands and you are under it. Nope, I can kick back afterwards with a 6 pack and turn on a football game or a fight or whatever and enjoy the beer then. Not worth messing something up because I was a little tipsy and didn't set a torque wrench right.

I also drink very strong craft beers so even a few is going to make me start feeling it. The swill that is light beer... not so much but that's for beer pong or flip cup etc...

We have been restoring a 1970 bronco for a number of years, and recently we have found some "creative" repairs on it that can only be blamed on BEER while working in the garage...

Well that serves you right lol. You don't just get to stare at titties for free. Well not at a club anyway. If we're talking about some of the crazier college parties you can go to... usually that only costs $3.
