Well Saturday afternoon my dad got the great idea of trying to fix the radiator on my car by himself, because I had told him that it was leaking a small puddle every night on the driveway. I had warned him not to fix it himself, but, while I was gone in another town in his truck, he tryed to close the hole in the lead seal. Which didn't work.
When I got home, I found my radiator laying on the driveway with a blowtorch and solder flux lying beside it, with my dad rummaging through the basement trying to find the solder. I asked him what he was doing, and he said he was trying to find more solder because he had fixed it once and put it back in, only to make the hole twice as big and leak twice as much antifreeze when it was hot.
So turns out he's gonna pay for the repairs to the radiator this week when we take it to a repair shop. I'm trying to milk a little more money to find out what that annoying clicking is in the front. Maybe I need to have him "fix" that also. Wish me luck.
