As usual cleaning wasn't the primary goal.

It started off when I broke the brake idiot (pun intended) light sending unit on the distribution block so I removed the block to remove the broken plastic piece, but one of the lines wouldn't come off because someone in the past rounded off one of the line nuts, so I had to cut the hard line and of course it was the longest line on the car; the one to the rear brakes!

So the task then turned into replacing the brake line, which quickly turned into fighting with grease, oil, and road grime falling on my face. It was definitely time to get the putty knife, degreaser, and the paper towels, but I'm glad I did because I found out that the red oxide underside on this car is absolutely beautiful, except for that nasty scratch!!!

As seems to be my SOP a simple 10 minute switch replacement turned into a two week adventure.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets sidetracked like this.
