I was living in a boarding house. There were some people living in the house that I didn't know. The proprietor, a thin asian woman in her 60s, unlike the comic, told another man in the kitchen that he should pay attention to details. I said I was, that I was getting a new bolt for Betty. The rear suspension had been held on by two bolts that came up through the floor panel. They were loose, and so I tightened them. One of the heads of the bolt snapped off. I noticed that the bolt was hollow, and had been tacked on to the inner side of a mounting bracket by an ugly weld. I made a point of explaining that I was going to McLendon Hardware to buy a new bolt that fit inside the lower suspension. My idea was I would drill out the broken bolt and get some epoxy putty that would keep the bolt in place. I made sure that the other man in the kitchen knew I was "paying attention to details".
I don't think I realized this in my dream, but the bolt that snapped could never be tightened, because it had been tacked on with the weld. The head of the bolt, exposed inside the van, wouldn't turn, so it snapped (wooo... good stuff there dream weaver).
I'll have to look this up later. I'm trying to get the new MCJ L1G3R build running, so I need to change focus. I remember snapping off the studs in the head of the flathead engine that I pulled off of Romeo. I stored it in the shed. I also remember moving an engine into the shed, and it was quite dangerous. I was balancing the engine, trying to push it, and it came close to falling over on me. I also remember doing something in the rain. It was stormy. I'm not sure if that is when I buried the block with the snapped off studs or nor. I think I purchased new bolts from McLendon that I still have that I was going to use to replace the bolts on the L head.
