    Default Please talk him out of this

    My better half has had a lifelong dream of owning and driving a m211. Now he has found one that needs a home. He is not a mechanic! But he is very mechanically gifted.

    He is retired and we have a new small business based off of my bobbed deuce, so he is justifying a m211to our expansion. I'm worried about the work and cost involved.

    Please talk him out of this

    Default M211 fix

    There is no cure for the Early Deuce Addiction...EDA. We just need to stand by his garage and show all the support we can until it passes. If he drinks more water they pass easier but he'll be lucky he doesn't need to pass another one immediately after the first.
    Watch him carefully, if you rub his feet he can't walk and that will help avoid another one.

    All our best to him, I don't know anyone that has ever passed one easily and they always regret they did.

    Look at the bright side, he doesn't have CRS and hopefully doesn't have RSB. I got both right now and can't remember what we were talking about.

    You may have come to the wrong place for that sort of intervention.
    Where are you at in WA, maybe I can buy up all the close ones to protect you from them.
