Definitely alot of car enthusiasts on this board.

This is certainly a skill I would like to have but unfortunately I do not know my way around automobiles.

Do you just work on the trucks or the cars as well? I am asking because I rent cars quite a bit and am alwasy wondering just how beat up they really are.

I'm just a hobbyist. I do spend a lot of time at my friends' shop though. 2 friends who started out as hobbyists that opened up a shop. Started from front yard installs, but grew like a snowball rolling downhill. Most recent job was rebuilding the engine and putting in another clutch on the shop Evo that's going to be at the SuperStreet shoot out tomorrow at Willow Springs.
I'm countin' those M's now/ Those O's come straight off the Benz now...not the 550, more like the 65/​

Not to thread jack but I have a quick question. I know different factors play in but on average, how much would a full body paint job on a sedan run for?

WE NEED AN OFFICIAL CAR THREAD OR WHATEVER. I cant find a good one forum that talks about Camaros. When I have found one nobody ever posts anything. So yea we should take this into consideration. LIke to post questions or anything about cars because niketalk is a big community.

any1?????????????????
