car battery is shot for later half of weekend. end up being stuck in one place (although where i was stuck consisted of excellent company). several jumps, frustrating calls and $100 later, i am ready to replace it. hood then will not open. after bending several metal bars, surfing the internet and taking out the front grill out (volvo’s look weird without that front grill) – not to mention a few irritating scratches all over my hands and arms – i find that the latch has rusted in place. $$$.
and it’s ok. most importantly, the car will now start when i want it to.
hey, qix and the mark of kri came in this morning: BONUS!
