Easy Does It

The adventure of the week had to be unloadibg a ford flatbed truck.{ It was made sometime in the 60's not sure when} From a step deck trailer without the assistance of a loading dock. the tools required for this operation are common to a shop. however seldom used in this abstract.The adventure started at about 6:00 am & took some serous thought. before we came up with a good idea. to make a long story short we took a forklift & a low boy trailer detached the low boy from the gooseneck

Screws

what ever happend to screws seems everything today is held together with little plastic clips. who made up there mind that srews & bolts were so bad. for instance i had to repair a headlight to day. the hole thing was plastic there wasn't a srew or bolt on the hole assembly. what gives was the old four headlight syestem so bad does everything have to be made of plastic. i think the old iron way worked well for a long time. they were easy to work on .they looked good & got the job done!!
