Lando’s people fixed it!

Ok, so you know in Episode V, where Lando is yelling at Chewie after the hyperdrive on the Falcon fails, and he’s saying “It’s not my fault, It’s not my fault!!” ?

Well, I’m saying ‘it’s not my fault’, only I’m more elated than worried that the Empire is going to catch me and kick my ass (or freeze me in carbonite and turn me over to the people with bounties on me.)

You see, when my tires blew it had nothing to do with the brake job I did. If you look closely at this picture, you might be able to spot the problem.

For those of you who don’t want to take the time to look at that, or don’t know what you’re looking at, you’re looking at a suspension spring, broken and free from the seat. The nice pointy end sticks right in to the inside of my front left tire, like a knife.

Sure, I didn’t notice it because I’ve never even heard of anyone having this problem (and, as a result, didn’t think to look for this kind of problem,) but I’m sure somebody has had a freak spring-breaking accident wherein the initial problem causes two other problems and you never thought to look for the original cause of the problem.

Ultimately, this is going to cost me more than I want to pay.
