The growing pains of car repair...

Illustration for article titled The growing pains of car repair...

No sooner than after yesterdays repair did I discover that the hood would no longer completely shut, aka double latch shut. Quite annoyed, I asked my neighbor for help (my opening line was “ever do any of your own car repairs before?” “No” “Would you like to practice on someone else’s car?”). We removed the hood and sledgehammered the lip of the hood flat enough to properly close it. Only to find out the hinge for the hood on the passenger’s side is bent backwards and won’t completely shut. -_-.

Oh well, I can now legally drive the car and not worry about the hood flying up. Will get a junkyard hinge within a week or so. The growing pains of car repairs, right?
