    I would never buy my own truck. If for no other reason, I have the mechanical ability of a gnat. And, if you're going to buy a truck, you better know how to at least perform basic maintenance and repairs yourself. I certainly wouldn't have know what to do about a leaky exhaust.

    OTOH, I did install a set of slip on exhausts on my motorcycle and I only had to call my mechanically inclined brother once. "Umm, which end of the torq wrench did you say goes on the bolt?".

    Yes, it was a proud day.

    What you need is a fellow like my main mechanic Ardis. What he can do with a rusted bolt is unbelievable. His skills are legendary.

    Just this past Wednesday, I about cut my thumb off trying to replace the razorblade in my wife's scraper (it had got rusted and didn't want to slide out). That cost me a trip to the doc for a tetanus shot and a chewing out from my doc for not going to ER for stitches. I cleaned it and super glued it.

    I *always* keep at least one Kentuckian on the radar for just such occasions.
