30 Epic Do-It-Yourself Automotive Fabrication Failures

This really made me laugh, the old adage of a little bit of knowledge is dangerous is true ;-) follow the link for the 30 best weekend warrior projects to grace a vehicle, it really reminds me of my ex business partner in a funny way, he lied so much about his previous experience and skills so I can just imagine him turning out this sort of effort, he said that before he was a turbine test cell expert he had started out as trained vehicle mechanic and breakdown truck driver, when I checked we were told he was only the truck driver ;-) what gave him away on being a first fix break down driver was that he did not know about ballast resistor ignition systems on cars, pretty basic that and he did not have a clue how they worked.
