Default Roadmaster Base Plate Installation

I wanted to install a Roadmaster base plate under the front of my relatively new car, a Ford Flex I have done this twice before myself, but since we are in Nashville because of the health issues, I didn't have any tools to do it, so I decided to check around the area for someone to do it. Even though tow bar base plates are custom made for different cars, I figured that since you had to take off some of the fascia bodywork on the front of the car, it would be better to go to a body shop than a normal mechanic as they are more used to doing that kind of thing. I ended up taking it to Phil's Body Shop on Charlotte Pike in Nashville.

The address there is 5912 Charlotte Pike
Nashville, TN 37209
Phone number (615) 352-3358

He said he had never put on a base plate before, but Phil did a great job for only $130. At the risk of blowing my frugal image I added an extra $20 since he had to replace a drill bit and some loctite in the process. Unlike the one I put on the Honda Element, he had to drill two holes for this one. He said it took about 3 hours. If you need something like that done, and are near Nashville, I would certainly have Phil do it and feel free to mention me if you do. Great guy.

I hope he doesn't think the work he expects to get done later this fall on the mountain in western North Carolina is going to be that inexpensive!!

Lee's losing his touch, he must have been to tired to haggle, I bet he could have got him down to $90 if he had hung in there

Default Changing with the times

OK, OK, I have been working to win the Caretaker of the Year Award, which has made me momentarily become a warm and fuzzy guy, and I momentarily let my basic principle of frugality lapse for an unguarded moment.

But, don’t be thinking I have become a Softie and you can take advantage of the situation. When this Caregiver gig is over and I can display the award at the next rally we can come to... I’ll be back! Ha!
