Me: This old car should be a fun restoration project, I can’t wait to learn new mechanical skills!

Car: *old shit breaks and everything is seized & rusted on and K-Jet laughs at my puny attempts to tame it while I contemplate bequeathing my estate to IPD*

Me:

Memery aside, I bought a Harbor Freight jack and jack stands. I should say I replaced the jack since the regular 6-ton unit had faulty hydraulics and I could get the low-profile unit for $5 more, should I want to STANCE NATION the Miata.

The Volvo’s fuel pump may be okay since it turns out that the leaky thing is actually the fuel accumulator which is about the same price but a bit harder to find. I’ll go confirm this.
