    Thumbs down Princess Didn't like it

    It always happens never fail

    install something nice, wash it, paint it, buy something for it, wax it,
    and it will screw with you!!!!

    I installed my monitor and carputer as well as second battery and low an behold POOF i bring the van in for inspection and viola my front end suspension is shot. now i need to drop 1,300 for all new parts and labor etc to fix it. The "princess" doesnt like being touched i swear i should just stop trying

    does anyone else ever experience this with thier car or is mine the only one that screws me when i try to do right by it

    I prefer the 'don't give it any oil at all' method. That usually shuts it up pretty fast. But then again, for some reason I usually end up spending a lot more money on it.

    Did the shop tell you that it was because you put all that stuff in the car?

    That's what Chevy told me when my transmission went out in the silverado!

    how did you know. I think there should be a section here warning about the after effects of installing carputers and front end damage

    It's funny you should say that...since my fiance and I have been together, I have had like 5 cars in 6 years (I get bored easily), I am the one who always tries to "upgrade" my car (i.e. replace headlights, synthetic oil, stereos, wheels and I am always the one who seems to be pouring money into them. However, she used to have a POS Corsica and she never had to spend more than $50 to get that thing fixed. [rant over]

    Getting my '88 Renault van back after a 1500 $ paint job, I started putting in some nice vinyl (on the floors, like in a house), building all kinds of stuff like a table and bed/seats, only to discover big holes rusted in the bottom of it when lifting the wooden floor!

    Let the welding begin!

    holes rusted in the bottom of it when lifting the wooden floor!
    I used to have a astro van - it was a cargo van but got
    the conversion treatment - were they add all the fancy
    crap - I got it used and thats how it was -

    It had not rained in a few weeks - but the van smelled
    moldy - I ripped out the carpet - it had acted like a sponge
    - I had a few gallons of water under the carpet -

    I sanded the rusted metal down and patched the holes, also
    painted the floor same color as the van and said screw it,
    left it that way - I have had problems like that on a 89 olds also ,
    one little hole in the door gasket and your screwed - If I ever get
    a new truck - I am going to rip out the carpet and use spray on
    truck bed liner the floor - I dont even like carpet in my house now
