Haha! Hey isn't it cool that when you pop the kickpanel back on, how it holds the lever in place! Good as new!

Locked keys in vehicle...twice in same vehicle (2nd time only ten minutes after finally getting vehicle unlocked).  You would think I would have rolled down the windows after the first...dumbass!!

September 2001:  I was in a hurry to get out of work to go pick up my brand new Acura RSX and was rushing on an Avitall 2200 on a 1999 Stratus.  We all know what haste causes...  I got the Parking Light output and the (-) Door Trigger input mis-matched while quickly reading the TechSoft.  $1700.00 for a new BCM.  ouch.

Oh, and who hasn't had a sun-baked Miata center dash bezel shatter in their hands upon removal, even AFTER performing the "Please don't break" dance and saying the prayer.

I've scratched a dash of a brand new Tahoe 3 years ago. I've broken some clips. I've gotten dirt on a headliner of an 03 F-150 King Ranch when it first came out. And I have broke a door handle trim ring (inside) in an 97 Mustang.

i was helping a fellow installer finish a remote starter by doing a mercury switch under the hood for him. i checked twice for clearance and saw i was good, but got a phone call i had to take. went back to the car and started screwing the merc switch in the wrong spot.  yep,  all the way through. $1700. pissed me off.

me and one of my fellow installers were working on a 71 olds. delta and did a deck+4 speakers. well the fronts were a pain so i did them and the deck while my other guy did the rears. the rears went behind the seat in this car(drop top). well i guess the alpine type-r 6x9's were not considered back in 71 and when se went to put the top down all we heard was a little crinkle(the glass in the top crushing against the magnets). put the top back up and it was cool., disspearing glass. to top it off, my other installer sliced his hand wide open while cleaning the glass and had to go get stitches. we can sit back and laugh now, but it was not a funny site.

actually, i take that back, it was funny as hell!

Goddam. Like I've said before I admit I've made mistakes. But jeesh guys drilling through things? I can see myself doing the dissapearing window thing though. Anyone pop an airbag or srs unit? And man, I hope you guys didn't have to fork up the 1700 from your own money. I'd quit before I do that!
