Damn Trunk!

Something that I wanted to do for a while now  was weld up some of the pre-existing holes on the trunk of my Subaru.  These were holes that I had previously filled using fiberglass when I didn’t have any welding skills.  Seemed simple enough.

The trunk started off well. I cut a couple pieces of steel to fill in the holes and welded them up.

This was about the time when all hell broke lose 😦

I finished re-installing the trunk lid after filling up the trunk with a bunch of “stuff” for safe keeping and closed the trunk. Little did I know that I had flipped the cancel switch on the latch so that it couldn’t be popped using the interior release. Of course one of the holes I filled in was the key hole!

Now you might say, not a big deal Tim, just remove the back seat and flip the release from inside the trunk. That was my first reaction too until I realized that I had too much stereo equipment and other “stuff” piled up in my trunk to get to the latch.

So what do you do???? My solution, cut a hole in the trunk so that I could get my hand in there… Lovely 😦

Of course other things have happened during these last few weeks that have kept me from the BatBerry

  • Starter went on the Subaru
  • A bunch of rust repair on the Subaru
  • Clutch shredded and couldn’t get the Subaru out of gear which required towing the car to the shop

My mechanic thinks the Subaru is jealous of the time that I’ve been spending on the BatBerry and is acting up to get my attention.

But I’ll keep forging ahead!! 🙂
