Bloody Hell

So, I thought I'd save a few bucks by installing my own car stereo today. I've had the stock radio in since I purchased the vehicle...I didn't know they still made cassette decks.

I saved by purchasing my stereo at a garage sale....probably my first mistake, however, I've gotten a few really good deals lately, so I figured I couldn't go wrong.

I tried to decipher the wiring diagram for the car for about an hour, before I broke down and bought an install kit from Circuit City. Now, the install kit required me to cut and tape wires anyway, but at least it was in the comfort of my house. This took me another hour...during which I managed to put a quarter inch nick in my finger (lessee...is it always cut towards you...or away...hmmmm)....I succeded in bleeding all over the kitchen....my four year old then pointed out each and every drop of blood and stated, "There's your ouch dad....there's another ouch dad"...

When it was all said and done, the stereo didn't work...I ended up putting the stock radio back in, and resigned to purchasing a new stereo and perhaps PAY someone to install it.

I did enjoy several margaritas in the process, though.

Removing my posts, huh? Fascist pig. I realize this is your blog site and everything but why do you feel so threatened by the opinions of others?
