Mechanic

Ok guys, I know after Steve's headgaskets I'm sure that none of you want to come to this shop. However there are certain jobs that I can do here that the boss doesn't know how to charge for. Like J-Mods and the like. Also after a while of working here I'll have more sway on the other things that I can do. Right now I'm mostly just doing the work that comes in, but I would really appreciate it if any of you would give me a call for some....less "import" type work. So please PM me if you have something that needs to be done to your car and I'll see what I can do.

Thanks again

Justin

Too many foreign cars there Justin.

Why can't you do odd jobs off the clock?

And you spelt mechanic like you's a maniac-mechanic combined.

sorry

just a little tired. And yes, after pulling the trans out of a saturn I'm now longing for something a little less...gay to work on.

I would do work off the clock for some extra money, but all of my tools are here and I live next door to the president of the home owners association.... He's a pretty laid back guy, but it wouldn't be good to push my luck there.

Of course we also do nitrous sales and installations here if anyone is interested. The kits are Cold Fusion brand name, which are manufactured here in Houston and are sold by NSN a sister company to this one.

My boss likes the performance work, but doesn't exactly try to get any of it. So, I'm trying to drum up my own business. I'm hoping to become a tuner and dealer for SCT. However the buy in is pricy and it's hard to convince people that you are capable of tuning their cars without years of experience under your belt. But I have a plan to remedy that when the time comes.

So any maintenance, modification, or performance need you guys have please give me a call or shoot me a message.

I'll try to spell things correctly next go round.

Justin

you can use it on a carb engine as well. just be carefull how much you add through the carb, seems like it would be easier to stall the engine that way.

Nick, just use one of the main vacuum lines off of the intake and idle the car up some to suck it in. About a half bottle while the car is good and hot. Then turn it off and let it sit for about half an hour then start it up and run it until all the smoke is gone.

Yeah steve you can come by. Plus I need my weeble wobble's from you anyway...that's universal joints for those of you who aren't up on modern terminology.

And I can normally schpeel tings korectily ifn ey tach mys tyme.

...

What's this spell check thing you speak of. And when are you going to bring me some business??? I know one of you buckets needs something.

Also steve look for a deep well 15mm in the 3/8 drive variety as mine has been missing since we went swimming in your tranny. It may be in your motor somewhere by now

This import crap is annoying. At least I got to work on a blazer today....yay

i'll look, but we didn't crack my tool box when we did the tranny stuff. so there shouldn't be any mixing of sockets there.

yeah..

I know. But I have to try for all the business that I can. I have a house to pay for. And a wife that insists that we need furniture in it.

And steve....I know of your secret conspiracy to take all of my tools one socket at a time. So watch your back socket boy
