Three hours of work on just two rusty screws.

MikeyIf there is ever a test of patience in this world, I definitely found it. My friend Stevo was bored so he decided to come over and with his help, I'd be able to bleed my brake fluid (it takes two people). Well, needless to say, that night we never even got into the master cylinder because of two very stubborn/frozen screws.

After 2.5 hours one night and 30 minutes the next night. I finally did it. I had to drill through the head of the screw and then drill down into the screw itself and then get the new screw extractor set I bought down in there and I finally got the screw to come out. It was a victory worth shouting from the roof tops!

See pictures!
