Default Most horrific car audio accidents?

Well I couldn't find a thread like this one so I figured why not.

What was your most horrific car audio accident you've ever had! I've seen nails from nail guns go into peoples hands.... shocks that left peoples entire finger black and sizzling.

I've had some good shocks from wiring things but thats the most extreme of mine. Anyone have a story or pics/vids of their accidents while messing with car audio related stuff? feel free to post it up!

Last winter, I had a battery hooked up, but not strapped down. I have metal support bars in the back of my golf's seats and it just so happened to be the perfect width to touch the pos and neg. Caught my back seat on fire at 2 in the morn. Also, layed down an allen wrench on some batt terminals and it started sparking so I grabbed it on accident, left a nice burn...

not really horrific but it could have been..
When I was 17 I had an unfused ignition based turn on lead ground out and go up in smoke.. it filled my car with smoke and I couldn't see to drive. {windows were down and the sunroof was out}

other than that, I have a heatgun tip shaped scar on my arm just below my bicep. {among many other scars}

All in all, I've fared pretty well doing car audio stuff over the last 20 years.

It's the construction work I could write a page or two about..

Ouch man And as for grabbing the wrench sparking I had a similar incident when I hooked 2 wires together and started sparking -mixed up wires by using 2 reds on accident- then instead of letting the fuse pop in 2-3 seconds of sparking I quickly grabbed the wires right at the copper part sparking and I heard the sizzle coming from my finger lol.

A guy told me once in my hometown that he had a L7 explode (literally), and it left fragments in his ceiling.

ive had 2 fires in my car one from a loose ground sparking and caught some paper on fire.

the other is from a distribution block i rigged got hot and melted the wire and tape and made a pretty big fire in my trunk. I had a fire extinguisher but it was no good so i had to put it out with a beer.

I always have fire extinguisher in my car now on

I would love to hear the back story behind that.

Worst I've ever had personally, was I was checking voltage with a DMM and hooked the negative lead to the comm port. Needless to say it was a solid connection between battery neg/pos. I started getting popping from the prongs, the multi-meter started warming up in my hands so I got the hint.

Funny thing is, was an $8 piece of eq. and still works perfectly to this day (when I hook it up right of course)
