Newton Newbie called me this morning. He has finally come to grips with the fact that he is not gonna get replacement parts of better quality. He has somewhat come over to the dark side and tomorrow we will be doing the stretching of the parts. This is not an exact science or even an engineering directive.
This is "look, this is the only shit that might fix your problem."
So we are going to make a ridiculous drawing on a piece of cardboard to kind of gage the stretching of the parts so we can kinda measure how this is gonna work out. This is called a raggedy ass template.
There are no guarantees with the stretching.
I love this job.
Next up, the cutting up of the metal part because they are too lazy to take it off the vehicle.
