Theologian by day, Wannabe mechanic by night.

Installing a car CD player really isn't that hard...

It sounds silly but I usually don't do much stuff like that. After today I made a decision that I am going to try and do more stuff on my own before having a 'professional' do it for a crazy amount of money. It may have taken longer, but it was more satisfying when I was finished (even though my buddy Justin did most of the work...). My job was to assist, watch and learn while lending a helping hand. But I think I can do it on my own now if I had to. 

Anyways... silly for most but huge for me, especially being a military kid that never had to work on anything (no garage, no house that we had freedom to work on). 

Next thing to do with the car: 

Find a replacement driver side door handle for a 92 Toyota Camry. Then take apart the door and install it. 

The funny part is my uncle is a mechanic and today he called me and was laughing at me while I explained to him all that was going wrong, of course he gives me tips for how to fix disasters that have not even happened yet. 

Where does this bolt go anyway.....oh well.

That's what the internet was made for:

That link takes you to a replacement door handle.

That link didn't get all the way posted. Go to and enter make and year and search for door handle and you're good to go.
