I test drive vehicles for a living,,diagnosing lots of different issues,,
I'm no mechanic,,I tell the mechanic what issue I'm having & they tear it down.

I work on my own cars when I think I can do it,,If its a big job,,I turn to my mechanic co-workers/friends.

Mad respect to all you mechanics.

I'm an ex- mechanic. Still ASE certified.
I now work as a Commercial Sale Manager.
I do miss fixing cars though.
I got in a pretty bad car wreck that kept me from being productive, so for my wallets sake, I went into management, and retail management sucks.

Still working on cars, but I'm more of a jack of all trades now that my former owner sold the 2 shops to a new owner and I'm under new management.
Been doing more work on the shops themselves than wrenching on cars for the last couple months, man did I get rusty quick!
Now that the shops are getting back up to par I've spent more time back in the game and it's like riding a bike, knocked out a 1.7 hour intake gasket job in about 1/2 hour tonight lol!
The new owners have been working me hard, thus the lack of posts from me lately...
But the pay is good so I hope to get some new vids up with the new camera and new XL soon.

I am a technician of 30+ years, I sell and service industrial woodworking machinery. I do everything from changing bearings to full blown automation. I love working on my RC trucks and making them better. I have some ideas now for the savage but I can't share them yet. LOL!!!  8)
