Jay Leno playing with fire.

I've read advice on here to always disconnect the battery before messing with the fuel system. Well, old Jay had to be dragged out from beneath one of his old jalopies - aflame!

Just goes to show.

Good grief  :o at first I was like 'LOL' but then I was like '... bloody hell....'  :-X ouch  :'(

When working on the Lotus Esprit we had it on a elevated wheel platform and the damn thing just slowly rolled off it when I was underneath :o .... the battery was certainly disconnected but that gravity thing is 24/7  ::) ... always chock the wheels, and never not use axle stands when jacking up a car ....

Wish you a full recovery Jay Leno and hope car comes out AOK to!

Latest suggests skin grafts necessary.   Best policy is that Murphy's Law applies when working on cars.  By repute Jay Leno is of positive disposition - no doubt he will do his best to rebound.
