I miss group gatherings too. Last group work day I was helping fit brakes and a sway setup on someone elses G8. I was slightly jelly.

The other 3 cars mine included were getting routine MX. On and SS brake lines. motive bleeder got a work out that day.

Now we just drop the wrenches on our own face.
That shit hurts.
My son just turned 16. He's been helping me wrench on cars for 3yrs now, and since we dont have a lift a lot of that is laying on our back under the car.

I keep drilling into him the cardinal rule, "Dont lay directly underneath what you're working on". I'm pretty sure that's saved us tons of crud falling into our eyes, and probably avoided a few chipped teeth from a falling ratchet handle.

I've finally learned, thankfully without injury, safety glasses are a must when working under rusty cars.
Relying on fast reacting eyelids/lashes just doesn't do it anymore.

ive learned that a couple times too. and being ignorant and not wearing them using a miter saw has gotten me to the urgent care a couple of times

Im just thinking those are some long arms
Shit. Here’s what happened:

I set the impact on the radiator support with the hose connected. I didn’t need it it that moment. Later on the creeper. Rolled under the truck. Rolled back out, hit the hose And the gun fell, hitting me in the head. My stupid fault.

I've gotten brake cleaner in my eyes on more than one occasion, even with safety squints on.
