Garage
Glad that worked out for you.

I've got a funny story for you on that subject (it's funny now).

Several years ago I had to change the starter out on my SC. The car was off the ground just far enough for me to reach up into everything without having to stretch too far. Very claustrophobic, my nose could rub the bottom of the tranny.
Anyway, I'm under the car hugging the tranny with a dental mirror in one hand and a wrench in the other when I scrape a wad of crud off the top of the tranny. The crud rains down on my face and I instinctively move my head. My arm hits the shop light, the shop light falls on my other arm and burns it, I jolt my head up from the pain and smash my face right into the tranny, my face bounces off the tranny an I smash my head on the concrete floor........ just as my wife walks in the garage.
She said "are you OK?" and in my best Jeff Spicolli voice I reply "ja hear that? It's my skull".
I wore a nice black eye for a week.
