    8L related injury.

    I seem to be injuring myself on cars lately, namely 8L's!! This got me thinking, there must be some impressive injuries sustained from working on your own car, or is it just me? Lol

    Check out my finger which was sliced open on a pd130 camshaft whilst changing the lifters. I hadn't seen the bones in my finger before and don't want to again haha

    Erm ow

    Worst thing I've done is probably dropping a cylinder head onto my fingers, certainly no where near as bad as any of the above!

    I tripped over a trolly jack whilst doing an oil change once!! Smashed my lower thumb joint to bits, ended up having 6 weeks off work (fully paid) so there was an up side to it

    I had similar scaffolding when I rolled a dune buggy type thing and ended up smashing my arm to bits. I was in france and just remember being pumped with morphine
