So we learned what they did when they came to pick it up. They put some of that oil additive that helps prevent oil leaks. They didn’t Lucas they used some off brand and this was the result. It was miracle magic or something. They have done all their oil changes every 5k with full synthetic. They have owned it from 12miles.
This was a while ago and just found the pic. I know there was a broken piston involved, some cylinder scoring and the head damage...

No pinch, no pinch
...Procedure to remove that funky control bridge, IP, A pillar moulding and also the glovebox. Turns out if you pop off the outside dash trim panel you can get a socket on the actuator and crank it down manually.
...Didn’t see him, only felt him. His tail flicked up as my forearm brushed against him.
...The little guy got pinned up against the drain pan and I didn’t feel like grabbing him with my nasty hands. Grabbed the first thing I could reach and just wanted to scoot him away but he got stuck instead. My boss got a real kick out of it.

From what I was told it was only strapped on with two straps, so when he tried to turn around to unload it just went. Not exactly sure as I didn’t see it first hand, but apparently it was the drivers first accident in 20 years.

It’s naht a tumah
...Shitty body repair. Cracked bondo let water in and blistered causing a water pocket
Sneaky Peak leak
Shoulda used Herndabernd
...fair amount of grease there, but with the carnage it’s hard to say what actually caused it. Leaky wheel cyl probaby thinned out the grease, eventually the bearing went kerflooey.
...Peeled [one of those stupid fake chrome plastic wheel skins] off and saw the horror
Im the only one who does that but i was off yesterday and we got a good rain. Im also the only one who switched to cordless impacts
... i realize there was water when i went to put air on a tire and water came out my air gauge
Vehicle is a 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider Quadrifoglio that’s been sitting for 6 years.

Ayo my quality control, captivates your parts-y patrol...
It’s a 5.7L Hemi, I believe it was an 09 Ram 1500....
I spent a solid 2 hrs scrubbing that shit off the valve covers to re-use. Wish I had a pic of the oil pickup tube too. Smoked! haha total loss.
