Arrrrgggggh!!

you guys ever had one of those days??
last night was one of them.
my plan was to replace the ABS sensor on the rear diff, so i pullled the truck in to the shop and as soon as i got under it i noticed a mess on the rear wheel on the inside, crap a toasted wheel cylinder, oh well jsut some thing else to fix.
then went to pull the sensor and the bolt twisted in half!! just wait it gets better.
so i then try to weld a nut to the broken stud to get it out, well i put a wrench on the nut and it twisted right off and fell in the sensor hole!!!!
by this time i'm just trying not to lose it, so i stop and count to about a thousand then crack a cold one. now i'm ok. oh well since i have to pull the diff cover i may as well install the posi i have had sittin on the shelf and haven't had a chance to install yet. that was the best part of the job and actually went pretty smoothly. at least i now have a posi.
but parts store is closed for the night so i pull the wheel and of course the brake shoes are wiped from being soaked in brake fluid.
so that is how a 2 minute job has now up to day two. i am now waiting for the parts store to open to see if i can get the parts i need to get the truck fixed and i still haven't got the darn bolt out!!!!:blowup:
