I tried embedding an html table in a post, which did not work. I tried just the stuff within the table tags, and adding the HTML and BODY tags around it. Does the board support it, and if so, what am I doing wrong? Here's the complete contents of the source file:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<TITLE>4thGen_F-Body_Swaybars</TITLE>

The Senate, UAW, et al, just gave up (ie failed) on reaching a compromise a few minutes ago.

I don't know how GM will come out after bankruptcy (they just hired the bankruptcy lawyer), but the stock market futures are looking ugly tonight. It actually held up well through some dismal recent employment numbers, but I suspect tomorrow is gonna be ugly. Rebuilding my retirement is going to mean austerity and no new cars for a very long time, and I suspect that will be true for many others. That can't be good for any automaker.

I'll admit I wasn't convinced that bridge loans to March could solve the problems for GM, so I don't claim to know what the right answer was. Nevertheless, this is going to be a big kick in the teeth for the economy.

The Hellwig bar does not fit with the Strano/Fay Watts link. It has plenty of diff housing clearance, but it hits the center bellcrank (aka "propellor", but not by me).

It fits fine on the stock bar mounts, and that's how I installed it. However, I'm now using the Hellwig bar mounts for my Hotchkiss bar because they provide a little more clearance for the Watts axle clamps.

I put a small nick in the bar's finish with a floor jack (near the center, toward the front of the car). Since it's hammertone, I rubbed in some POR-15 (very durable urethane) to prevent rust and blend in the repair. It's not invisible, but I doubt if I can get it to show up in a photo. I don't think anyone would notice even with a car-show mirror under the tail (as if ...).

$125 + shipping

I have a pair of brand new PBR generic C5 front calipers, never installed. These were purchased from Kore3. They are anodized gray and do not have the Corvette logo. Unlike the current stock, these do not have the engraved Kore3 logo either. Only the actual calipers are included, not the brackets or anything else. Now $200 shipped.

The orthopedic surgeon I saw yesterday has sent me for therapy for carpal tunnel before. It's been back again for awhile, this time with a very painful cyst to aggravate the situation. He referred me to see a hand/wrist specialist, and suggested that I might need to have both problems corrected surgically at the same time. In other words, the ligament across the base of the palm would be severed. That isn't the plan yet though, just speculation. I'm hoping that the removing/aspirating/whatever the cyst might take care of it, since it's right next to the carpal tunnel and may be rubbing the nerve too.

Anyway, the orthopedic surgeon, who did a great job on my knee but does not do hands anymore, said all of his past patients have been happy and nobody complained of lack of strength. He said it only reduces hands strength with the hand at an angle that's weak and awkward even without the surgery. OK, I understand that, and everyone I've talked to said the same thing. Nobody thinks they lost any hand strength.

However, I doubt if any of those people actually use their hands for any real work. They've probably never touched a wrench in their lives, and certainly haven't tried to use one in the inevitable awkward spots. At least now I can turn a turn a few bolts, then ice down my wrist and take it up again the next day. Yeah, it took me two weeks to get through a recent job that should have taken an afternoon, but I did get it done. I also live on about 11 acres, with all that entails .... Plus, there's the 54 pound race tires to maneuver onto the studs, and an ever-growing child who feels no pain whatsoever from my wrist (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Am I worrying about nothing? Once that ligament is severed, there's no turning back.
