August 25, 2017

I should have known better! Happens every time! Couple of nights ago, I decide I’m going to save a few bucks and install new brakes on my Saturn Vue. I stop at O’Reilly’s on the way home and pick up rotors and pads. Clearing the garage, I hoist the vehicle onto blocks. It’s all downhill…
