Let this be a lesson to all the youngsters. We are not superman. Lol.

I cannot remember what caused it. I can tell you my story. Deep pain that burns in the butt cheek, goes all the way to the calf. Is not something you put off. It feels like a burning steel. Yup, i herniated disc between L5 and S1.

Take care of your back guys. Seats, transmissions, heads, or even a door. In the long run its not worth it.

Im having surgery soon. And recovery after that. But after recovery i will evaluate my hobby. I may have to quit a few things.

I will be more around here since i have nothing else to do. Forums and playstation for 5 weeks. Lol...

cheela
Oh man noberto. Hope surgery goes well. But 5 weeks of playstation sounds fun. I haven't even had time to touch mine. Be safe.
Bitter
Only old men herniate discs...oh **** we're all old men now. ****!

Lol. Anyone can do it if you act stupid. Like me... Never asking for help

Its not the end of the world. Its the start of a new one for me..
cheela
...ugh. sounds like me, never asking for help....
Bitter
Yea LOL me too at work. But that's because the other guy can't do ANYTHING without help. Can't even pull a control arm down from a knuckle by himself.

Mean while I'm rebuilding a whole front end alone, holding the steering box with one hand and lining up the bolts with the other...no problem. Solo diag eletrical? sure. Only thing I need help for is bleeding brakes and if I could do that alone too I would!

Sorry to hear it Berto.

Hope you're "back" on your feet soon ! (bad pun)

Bitter, just get a power bleeder. tongue.gif

Hate to hear that you got hurt, hopefully you make a quick recovery. The best part will be getting sent home with useless hydrocodone.
njccmd2002
It is useless. Percocet is worthless too. They only cause constipation. Lol
Box
It's all useless, at least if you're unfortunate enough like myself to have genetic tolerance. Everytime I see an Advil or Tylenol commercial where "it got rid of their chronic pain" I want to show them what real pain is, but should I digress...

We always do a final manual bleed till we see 3 squirts in a row with no air at each wheel bled, no exceptions.

Is this the real Norberto then?
Keiri
Ouch, sounds rough, sir!

That's near the lower back, correct? Lumbar region?

I hope your recovery is quick and as comfortable as possible.
njccmd2002
Lol. Thanks guys. Slowly but surely.

Ant funny thing i had just bought the leather steering wheel cover from redline goods and was going to make a how to before this all went south...

BonzaiCelica
Hope you recover to the fullest
ClevelandGaint
Feel better man, hope for a speedy recovery

3weeks post op. Not 100 % yet. Some damage is still lingering. Post op visit now ok to go out the house. Has mad me think about my hobby a lot. Sometimes tempted to sell. At least the 1st gen . I dont know yet. Will see what future holds.
Bitter
Selling a car like that is something you'll regret for years and years to come.
Box
Once you're healed up you should be fine with continuing working on cars, just next time when it's something that really requires more than one person go and find said extra person. redface.gif

Or get a transmission jack, those things are great for all kinds of things.

Oooh, and a car lift.
richee3
I know of a very nice lift in like-new condition that would fit in your garage perfectly. The price is more than fair. I'm tempted to get it for myself. If I had the room, I'd be loading up the 4Runner and a trailer and heading your way to pick up your first gen, but I think you should finish it when you start feeling better. It's just a matter of time!
njccmd2002
Its just frustrating seen all that there rotting. Lol. Cant even work on th 2gr.
Bitter
a month or two won't kill anything, you can work on smaller projects for the cars in the mean time.
just pretend it's winter.

get into headlight retrofitting, learn about building LED arrays and make custom tail/turn lights.

Hmm, yes work on lighting and interior. Perhaps any wiring that's left.

Its not rotting. after all the work you've done to it. Don't sell it. You will regret it. I almost sold mine a while back too. Im glad i didn't. just rest up and take it slow.

Hope you get better soon! Don't sell anything as you'll regret it. Best wishes,

Hey, this is the same speech everyone here gives me but just in another place with a different person. You people are so unoriginal. tongue.gif
njccmd2002
Well thanks guys. I had already tought about selling the corolla before surgery so maybe ill do that. And keep the others. I may rewrap a steering weel in leather
Box
May not hurt to downsize some and free up space and money for the Celicas.
bloodMoney
Aw crap. I just bumped your project thread too.....

I've been off the boards for a while and was feeling out of it. Needing inspiration, I headed to yours and Luke's threads to make myself feel bad about being lazy.

I hope you're feeling better though!
njccmd2002
I am. Just cant do things. Lol. Just watch

Thats good. Take it slow though. You don't want to end up hurting yourself again. I wish you the best.
