No one got hurt, was like a sow motion happening after i had jacked it halfway up.
Its not the end of the car yet, just have to find the time to weld it propperly back together, and not the quick 4spot welding on a revserve plate i did.

well i dont want to be charged for murder, with them laughing themselves to death after reciving a complaint about a 18 year old car in Norway having rusted :wink:

(Norway may actually be the country in the world to use most salt on the rodes)
I wonder how, I wonder why, I wonder why I wonder

North east usa uses an "enhanced" brine... not only does it eat at metals, it erodes roads, bridges, sew piping, shoes (once your vehicle rots you'll be left walking) , kills plants, impairs vision thru anything transparent...
