I had a few days to kill while waiting on pushrods for my car.  I figured I might as well put in a pool.

Actually I had the pool installed by someone else.  Me and my brother did the electrical.  Hopefully we'll backfill around the pool tomorrow.  I'll call in the inspections this week and I'll be swimming next weekend.  It's going to take a couple more days to fill it and probably a week minimum for the temp to get up to swimmable.

I'm down to see you put a few trains on me.

I'm out on Murfreesboro road between Smyrna and Murfreesboro right now.

Let's do it another day. 

 

I would like for you to do a little tune on my truck also.

I'm taking your spot then.

I'm no expert, but I think two mods will help you.  First, stop fishing in that poor guy's aquarium.  Second, get a bigger lure. :)

My wife's front right brake pad disendegrated and fell out. WTF?

Drivers side is fine.

It had an issue back when it was under warranty where they had to replace it before.

Caliper sticking?

 If only one pad at one wheel wore out, and the other pad (on same wheel) is fine, then you have a problem with the caliper slide or brake pad slide (causing binding).  (Assuming caliper piston is on one side of the rotor).   If it's got a piston on each side of the rotor you'd have a piston sticking or pad binding.   Also once in a blue moon the pad can fall off it's backing.

So, the outer pad is gone (literally), how's the inner pad?

And, judging by how much metal has been lost, tell her to turn the radio down...at least a little! :D

Despite how it looks, she didn't drive it far once it started grinding.

Inner pad is ok.

Drivers side is ok.

This truck has had brake issues before, so going to try a new caliper.

Lube the pins, they are sticking. My wife's old Tahoe did the same thing.
