Yeah sorry about that: I can see how it was confusingYes, that’s how I read it and was giving suggestions on how to get hose out. I didn’t do the paint roller lube method.
Yeah gonna have to get it back out first that that’s not easy either.It looks like it was 50* overnight in your neck of the woods. That hose is cold. Set it out in the sun for a bit.
When you winch, make sure the rope or strap does not stretch under load. A lot of people can struggle with the hose breaking for whatever reason and at least one admitted to the winch end smacking him in the chest which is doubly worse if a shorter person in the one cranking on the buisness end of the car. Stay safe and don't rush it.Yeah gonna have to get it back out first that that’s not easy either.
I have had help with the kid cranking the winch while I push the hose and lube it. I didn’t have time to sit it out in the sun but it was in the warm house so it didn’t get too cold. Also was trying to get it done since the wife decided to take him to the water park today even though I had made it clear I wanted to get things done on the car.
So now I have no help and doing other things to not think about it at the moment.
I like that idea I may just do that. No plans for any of that but gives me options down the road.
What size rivnuts did you use in those spots?
That’s what I was thinking your were using. Was worried they might be a bit big but there is plenty of meat on the floor pan for them.I want to say 10-24tpi rivnuts. For the number and load, 8-32tpi should also work and be less of a hole to drill to fit.
