Have You Improvised When Fixing Something?

Hola Bitcholas,

Today was our "Random Question Question", so we covered a lot of different topics, but the one that seemed to stick had to do with 'ghetto DIY'.  The inspiration for this involves a guy in Colorado. He had a busted tail light, but instead of replacing it, he decided to get creative.

Being 'creative' is very often associated with producing something 'good' or 'beneficial'. This is not an example of that.

In place of a tail light, this guy used electrolytes...a red bottle of Gatorade.  

I admire the quick thinking, but come on, man.  

The we heard these tasty little nuggets of ghetto DIY from some of you:

 "I fixed a broken throttle cable with a piece of boot lace. Drove around that way for almost 2 weeks until the new one came."

"Coffee can filled with steel wool for muffler, had to replace steel wool every month."  (how many months did you have a coffee can for a muffler?)

"Hey guys My ghetto fix was my fuel tank was leaking on my car so I Gorilla duck taped it until I was able to get home stopped from leaking drove the car for 6 more months.

"One ghetto fix was once when I wanted coffee really bad, but had no coffee maker. So I filled a do-rag with coffee grounds and heated my water in the rice cooker and steeped the do-rag."

"Most ghetto or redneck Fix was using a can of pork and beans and an Arizona tea can to fix an exhaust system on the truck.​"

It went on and on. What's yours?

I'm outta here. Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!
