Final upshot of the muffler affair

Remember the trip to the muffler shop that quoted about $380? Well, this past week my tow bar rusted out and fell, scraping the ground. I dragged it back to the house, where Husband RJ and I tore the rest of it off the back of the Tracker.

Result? No more rattle-trap sounds. Completely back to normal.

So why is this in the MS Companion? Well, because, instead of crawling under the darned thing on my back, I can now simply apply a little attention (and Rust Rid) to the patchy rust spots and call it good. Total spent was about $36.00, since my first whack at the muffler did not take. Muffler patch is a wonderful thing.

And I am looking forward to the pleasant, easy task of spraying up old Flipper. It won't be pretty, but it will do.

Original cost = $380.00
Final cost = $36.00
Lack of a rattling sound = PRICELESS!

Good for you...

WHO is this Mr Muffler fellow and does your S.O. know about this alleged affair!?

FOR SHAME! Oh, wait ... 380$ for an exhaust muffler ... nevermind.

Shhhh! RJ's annoyed enough with all the time and effort spent on muffler already, without making it sound like THAT!
