Here's a dumb one for you. We got the '65 project stripped down to the unibody today except for the glass. I was trying to straigten a little "bang" in the top of the inner fender by hitting in an upward motion with the hammer on the under side. Yes, you guessed it ... one not so well placed blow completely missed the fender and caught me right in the mouth. Can't say that I've ever smacked myself in the face with a hammer before (and would prefer not to again). Good thing my son was doing most of the work, as I was reduced to a one handed helper, keeping a paper towel on my lip to slow down the blood the rest of the afternoon *LOL*.

So where's that doofus award now?

ouch! man, now you can show everyone your Mustang battle scar!

Friend of mine was driving in a rear axle seal and was using the right tool to go it and was smacking it good with a large hammer. he came down on his thumb and thought he broke the damn thing. he was pretty hurt but was determined to get the axle seal on. He grabbed up the seal driver and smacked once... twice... and then came down on the same thumb with the hammer.
OUCH!!!!

Similar to what someone else posted a few months ago, I was wrenching underneath the car when the wrench slipped off and smacked me right in the mouth. Amazingly, I didn't lose any teeth or have to get any caps, unlike the person who posted that other one..

Hm, I seem to recall doing something similar but with pliers and the metal end hit me in the eye. Forunately I wear thick plastic glasses so it just put a chip in the lens of my beater pair of glasses.

Let's be more careful out there, folks! *G*

The RPM cam is in and doing well, thank you *LOL*. I went with the Comp Cams rail type roller rockers and some Crane hardened push rods. Now I'm looking at pulling the 302 heads and replacing with some 351W heads ... it never stops, does it *LOL*.

Reminds me of when I was re-doing my front end. Missed the pickle fork and hit my hand. Hurt real bad. On the other side, missed the pickle fork and hit my hand in the exact same place ... the pain was intense! *LOL*

... maybe I shouldn't play with hammers /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

I hope that someday I will be fairly satisfied with my car and I can just relax and enjoy it.....(NOT!, LOL). I'm contemplating yanking the motor back out and pulling the Comp solid cam in favor of a solid roller. I just don't want to go to a 4500 stall(non streetable) which is what the current cam will require to really make it go.

I'm already poking around for an old Ford pickup to put my other 289/C4 in. I also have this evil dream of building a Stangiero too(Pontiac Fiero with a 289 in it, heh). My car hauling trailer has a nice patina of rust on it that needs to be sand blasted and repainted. I have some 5 leafs sitting out in my shop right now waiting for me. I promised somebody a week ago that I would have pictures of my cleaned up underdash air conditioning system for him to look at before he decides to buy it.

I'm trying to buy that old 68 tbird(429 thunderjet, would you believe this mogo has 460 ft pounds of torque?, woo hoo). I found somebody that wants the hood and fenders off it and will pay me what I'm offering the owner so I get the thunderjet, tranny and 9 inch for zip. Now if I can just pry the title out of this old womans bony fingers, LOL.
