My husband gets stuff done

Jimmy, our son, is in his last year of law school and is home for Christmas break. He was coming home from his waiter job Thursday night and had a minor run-in with a deer. He was not hurt and was able to drive home but the accident left his car with too damage to keep driving. His car was already in less than perfect condition but he is hoping to keep it running until he is full-time employed after graduation.
My husband, Jeff, is trained as a mechanic even though he is not employed exactly as one right now. Body work was never his specialty but he got right to work fixing Jimmy's Saturn.

We went to Certifit on Friday and got these 3 parts - front bumper, side fender and head light kit.


Jeff spent several hours Friday night and Saturday morning getting all the parts attached and he did say he had to use a little baling wire and a few zip ties as one of the brackets was bent and all the holes weren't exactly matching up.
It needs a paint job but the old Saturn is fixed and running and will hopefully hold out for another year.

  1. I don't know if I've ever commented here before, but I've been reading for a long time (came over from your previous blog). This just touched me so much! A dad will do everything he can to help his son - I've watched my husband doing similar things for our grown boys. Yay for getting stuff done!

  7. Dad comes through again! Jeff is a talented fellow to be able to do this type of work. I would be headed for an auto body shop if it were me. We have LOTS of deer damage around here.
