You have my respect as well! Can't tell you how many times I've heard "the grass is greener over there" etc... but almost no one switches sides of the fence. Serious congrats for having done so.

Good for you Jason! Any shop started up by an enthusiasts with your skill level is a huge benefit to not only the local P-car community but the entire P-car community!

Like Tippy said, have the owner do his homework and show him the filter. I've always stated that an informed enthusiast is my best client. When they understand the problem you both win.

Not sure the shock ever ends. With all the negative press out there I am surprised anyone buys these cars. The M96 is an easy fix. The M97, not so much. Oh well, I guess it's a good thing we opened an engine shop. LOL

M97... The perfect reason for a "while you're in there" upgrade to Nickie cylinders and 3.8 upgrade.

Lol... we were gonna do a stage 2 turbo on this little girl until I found the metal flakes in the filter. Now we have to reassess next steps.

This. Brian took the time to explain just how bad I had been taken by the seller of a used WUR so I could stop cursing him for my lack of planning.

Enthusiasts just want to know why/how more often than how much.

Good luck with the endeavor.

It depends on what we need done. Some stuff can be done at a local shop, some stuff we haul up to Daytona to a shop there. And some stuff we box up and mail to the other side of the country. It all depends on the specific part needing rework.

Jason,

Wish you the best on the new endeavor. This type of thing was my backup plan last year when I was laid off. Now I just get to do fun side projects.

Just remember, its the customer service that brings people back. I hope your overhead is low and your client list long in the new year!

Congrats and best of luck.

Keeping it sparkling clean takes a lot of effort. But it is well worth it. I hate walking into a shop where you're afraid to lean on anything cause you might get greasy. If you can't eat off the floor, you shouldn't park your baby on it

Congrats Turtle. You once replied to a question of mine in the most polite fashion, non demeaning way. About very basic things I knew nothing of and made sense of what I was looking at. You have a way with people and cars. You will do well sir!

Here's a few pics of a little 2.4L we are rebuilding. In the last pic, besides the fact that he glued the cylinders into the spigots, can anyone quickly figure out the major snafu the previous rebuilder had?
