    Default YES!, I am an idiot :(

    i dont know if you seen my thread about my diasater with my locking wheel nut, but here is the aftermath!

    wheel had to be cut off, was going to have nut torched off but my mecanic (who i have known and trusted a very long time) did not want to use a torch/welder so close to brakes/suspension/bodywork/etc to avoid damage so he said cut it off to save any other damage......................

    ". What had actually happened to the nut? I have had some nuts jammed on before and a simply wheel bolt spot welded on to the end got them off!

    Thats a bit wild!
