When we bought this workshop the pit was a falling apart and the cut out where it looks as if it were a window, was some ply holding back dirt.

So we stripped and rebuilt where needed, installed lights, there is portable ventilation units we use, fire extinguisher, covers when not in use and we have lifting equipment that fits on the tracks for the cover.

Early 1.6L fusion with 17s09 recall for the cyl head leaking oil into exhaust causing a “thermal event” in the engine bay. Have done several recalls but have never seen one that actually caught fire. Can’t wait to argue with warranty people over what it’s gounna need.

I was going to [make the newbie do a full wash], but I didn’t want him screwing up the paint or, since the windows don’t seal well, getting a bunch of water in the cab. He was pretty apologetic and had the rest of the shop to clean, so I just let it go.

The issue that caused this is the fact that the truck has a 5" lift, and a bag set for a stock height truck, he was hauling his camper, hit a huge dip, truck bounced, shear upper mount bolts and air line on passenger side, ripped lower mount off drivers side. The lift blocks and rough country shocks gave it away immediately

...first off this a coworkers hand not mine. What happened is we were pushing a newer STI off our chassis dyno, as it was having issues and needed to come off for repairs. The car was caught on the rollers, and he was pushing on the front tire, as the car started to come off the roller and was picking up some momentum, and his 2 fingers got caught in the wheel spoke and got caught between the caliper... what a mess.

Thankfully hes keeping the tips! Both were hanging by a thread when he pulled his fingers out of the wheel
