RE: [DMCForum] So much for the 'Fridge Run.

No Fridge run?  Not necessarily so, Daddy-O.

Your first task is getting the car to where you can work on it.  Then,
you'll need to find a way to get that broken TAB out.  I bet ya' it's the
one that was frozen.  You may have to drill it out, or have it pressed out,
but you can get it fixed in time.

To give a rough alignment, lay a board across the tire.  It should be even
with the side of the car and not point in or out.  The alignment shims are
pretty standard things you can pick up at any place that does alignment.
They go between the large washer (which you may have lost, but can replace)
and the trailing arm.

The good thing is that you're okay.  It's not as bad as you might think.

Subject: [DMCForum] So much for the 'Fridge Run.

I went out tonight to buy some #408 vinyl dye. On my way home, as I
was decelerating to pull into a grocery store, I snapped a TAB.

At 35/40 MPH.

The car swayed so violently that I have strained a muscle in my back.
The good news is, I didn't hit anyone or anything. Beyond the bolt, I
don't see any damage.

The car is resting in the parking lot.

Here are my questions:

1. Walt, can you overnight me some ICONEL TABS and shims?
2. I presume I lost all my shims. How the hell do I ever figure out
how many and where they go?

Any advice is appreciated.

Rich A.
