View Full Version : Got bad news and more bad news.....

While cleaning my car I was taking my rims off and didn't think too much about it. Went to get my front driver's side rim off...lifted off and it was stuck to the hub. The rim was fine....my back wasn't. I don't know what I did, but it feels like I have 2-2x4s along each side of my spine. :( The car's up on jackstands, washed with Dawn and I don't think I can manage to clay bar, polish it and put the rims back on the way my back is. Really pisses me off that I did that b/c I spent about 6 hours on Friday doing this:






So I'm going to take some IB Profin and lay down. If I feel better tomorrow I'll make it down there but I'm not sure as of now. Guess this is what it's like getting old. :( ;)

Good luck guys. :thumbsup:

It sounds like u strained your back muscles! :( Ice it for 20 mins every hour and continue the Tylenol or Advil. :thumbsup:

Now I have to go and do the same to my engine! My back will be hurting later too! :(

Surprisingly I used Armor All.

Back is still sore, but a little better. Still popping IBProfin every few hours. Hurts to walk around too much so unless I find a motorized wheelchair I'll be staying at home. Sucks cause I could clean up my car in about 2 hours and be down there if I wouldn't have done this. :(

I feel like this:
