Some time ago, I spoke of my front ballast box woes. It was sooo heavy it took two men and a boy, literally, to lift it out. Filled with concrete.
Well, it sat in the corner until today. I decided to break it up and throw it away. So a hammer drill, a 5 pound hand sledge and 45 minutes of my time later, it was destroyed and disposed of.
Here’s the kicker….not only was it filled at least 80 pounds of hardened concrete, it was also filled with no less than TEN RAILROAD TIE PLATES! Really? What the hell? They couldnt find any lead bars handy? All of the battleship anchors were spoken for?
Anyhoo…its gone, Im happy, the wifey is happy, and the car is doing great.
