Wait, is the hippy smoking crack now? A 3.5 better than an LS motor? Bahaha
Next thing you know he's gonna mention a power stroke being better than a dmax...
Shawn have you even looked inside a new chebbie? It's like comparing a Bentley to a pinto (Chevy=Bentley)

I'm far from being wealthy, but like those guys mentioned, you can aquire so much more by using cash, and if you run into a great deal on something you want/need, buy it even if you can't afford it. If you wait til it fits in the budget, you lose  money .
I also recommend to never except financial advice from myself... disclaimers and what not

My current company, we build 90% of the product in house, even the Ground Support Equipment is built in house and we test every component in house.  Getting Raw material became such a problem we just finished building our own Foundry and Forge.

Come on Phil, you know Toyota's built in the US!
...and most US cars don't have very many US parts in them anymore, especially electronics.   :(

Yet I still wouldn't trade my GM truck for anything. It's tough being patriotic, and having to work on the darn things at the same time.

Phil, definitely agree on Euro "trash", especially rover junk. It's bad enough that they have plenty of issues, and difficult issues at that, but the parts can be multiple times more expensive compared to the US or Asian brands. I will say, it's extremely hard to discredit the quality of Euro fit and finish though.

I have seen enough Mopars in my shop to know that I would prefer something else. (don't get me started on Neons!) lol

As far as newer cars not lasting, well, it wasn't that long ago that I was replacing engines with less than 50k on them....smoky, smelly, noisy, gas guzzling engines. (anyone remember the olds 350 diesels? eww)
We had a bad spell in the 70s and 80s but I put more blame on the government than the manufacters for that. The '90-2010ish cars are greatly more reliable up to the 100k mark, than pre-90s imo. After 100k, the electronics can begin to fail, but, the mechanicals have tighter tolerances and better alloys, and they can rack up a boat load of miles.
Now, on the newest cars we are seeing issues we didn't see a few years ago, mainly variable timing and direct injection. If you guys get time, google pics of intake valves on a direct injected engine. I'm seeing issues with those 2 systems on engines with less than 50k on them....not good. I think we're starting to go backwards on reliability all in the name of better mileage (again government).

I like Hondas, but Toyota is #1 in my book (as far as light duty) We have a few at home.

Oh, so the senco is just battery? I thought it might be fuel driven also because you mentioned nitrogen somewhere.

JR I'm going to look at those Sencos. The Feslodes are supposed to be almost as fast as air, and probably more than fast enough for a novice, but pricey.
Looks real good.

Sounds like great results. Honestly, I can't believe you did that job and did not have something go sideways, other than broken bolts and the steering shaft.(no offense)

On a chebbie, to adjust it out they have to use the tie rods....in other words, you'll lose a half turn in one direction, and rub tires the other direction.
..and you knew about the clockspring!?!
Guess that's enough to let me off the hook!

Don, don't let them correct the wheel by adjusting. On top of that, it would be good to know which way it came off, because there's a clockspring for the airbag under the steering wheel (think recoil spring on a lawnmower). It is only meant to turn, and wind/unwind a certain amount. If I was paying attention, I would've told you to strap the wheel with the seatbelt before removing the shaft. hindsight and all that
