    The mystery noise has been found. I am victorious! Halafukinluya!!!! Sanity is intact.




    Oh... I suppose you would like to know what it was. Well. It wasn't in the dash. It wasn't in the cowl area at all. Nor was it inside. Nope. It was a silly little thing. That rubber splash panel behind the spring and UCA that closes the gap between the frame and the wheel well has these wonderful little black push buttons that hold it on. On of those popped loose and was making an interesting ruckus. Took a bit to find it though as when you looked, it looked like it was in the right place. Made the exact noise as I pushed it back in!

    Lol!!! I actually was going to suggest looking at things that could hit the frame because I had a bit of plastic hitting the frame in the past and it made quite the ruckus but then I figured you were pretty confident in was in the dash so I bit my tongue :anonymous:

    Contrary to this thread's title, I can vouch for an economic rock chip fix. I bought two of these kits Permatex 09103 Automotive Windshield Repair Kit For Chipped And Cracked Windshields. Permanent Air-Tight Repairs, With Repair Syringe & Plunger, 9-piece Kit
    from Ace Hardware.

    Ran a little more expensive than Bezos merch but I was already picking up more Milwaukee stuff.

    I messed up not taking a before picture but man this stuff works. Definitely requires care and patience. The first kit was practice on some smaller non-concerning chips. PXL_20230607_000919664.MP.jpg

    And cut all of the branches back to give you better access. You'll want to have an axe or a chainsaw with a junk blade to start cutting roots, they have a metric shit-ton of roots!

    Looks way better than the Safelite "fix" they did on mine

    Chainsaws don't cut roots. Junk blades just overheat the machine and cutting through dirt is counter productive. Use an axe.










    Or fire..... :devil:

    I just wrapped the junk strap around the whole thing as low as I could, and then ran the winch until the whole thing came out of the ground. These were not big shrubs, though.

    Found this in my tire today. Should be easy enough to plug, but the wife says to just get a new one. God bless her! Looks like I will now have a full size spare. This will require me to buy a rim for it..
