    1. The most notable aircraft you have wrenched on

      For me, it would be Led Zeppelin's Boeing 720 named "The Starship".

      The small airline I worked for in Seattle operated/owned it in 1978/79.

      Gust suppression like the 777 has and the 737 does not is really not a deal breaker, really. Most heavies use use the Weather radar and altitude to avoid turbulence anyway. A better ride on a 777,...

      Oil "Warranties" are complete marketing nonsense. Do you really think anyone has EVER had their engine replaced due to oil induced wear caused by a particular type and brand of oil?

      Either wiring, micro-switches in the latch or the controller (module) for that door.

      You can check the wiring by disengaging the boot between the door and pillar and looking for wires that are...

      Grow a set already. If she wants your input, that's fine, but if she doesn't, let her make her own decision. Mutual respect is what makes a relationship work.

      You will need the ECU, sensors and harnesses from the donor car. The gear ratios between the 2 engines may be different. So you may need the transaxle, as well.

      I don't get it. Why would someone take a car that handles and functions well and cripple it by lowering?

      Why would you pull the engine to fix oil leaks? Makes no sense. Any kind of stop leak advertised to fix oil leaks is a complete waste of money and could damage your engine.
