    Close Call With Install

    Today, I got some parts in the mail for my carpc install. I was really excited about working on it. I took a break to go to the gym and when I got back I made a protein shake and some lunch. I was so excited about working on my carpc that I brought my tools and stuff to the kitchen table. I was just thinking to myself, "Hmm, maybe I should wait and do this on my workbench", and sure enough, I sat down and knocked over a blender full of protein shake all over the kitchen table and floor. "oh $h!t, son of a bee@ch". Luckily, I did not damage any of my carpc parts or tools.

    Moral of the story - I know this is an exciting hobby, but be very careful working on carpc stuff while eating or drinking. Especially if you are clumsy like me.

    Ok, thanks for the info. Keep us in the loop.

    Also as an additional note, knives are sharp and if you are not careful you may cut yourself when using one.

    Most of it landed on my sweatshirt and on the floor, so couldn't salvage any of it.
