We had our first injury on the bug. Drew was breaking the bolt loose on the wheel cylinder and had his left middle finger between the wrench and the axle housing when it broke loose and smashed it good. It may be broken so we're going to the urgent care.

You've got nine more and other than picking your nose and stripping phone wire they are highly over rated. Just another maintenance item. Hell, you could cut off 8 of my fingers and I wouldn't type any slower.
