If rely on myself and friends to do something this involved, and something goes wrong . . . ? I can't afford to do it twice? Neither the friendships, time, money, or even having the vehicle tied up again?No respect to any other forum members, but I love how the answer always seems to be, "spend money and rebuild it". I wasn't poor growing up but I definitely wasn't rich. In my humble opinion, too many answers fall along these lines..I dont know what you guys do for a living but paying big money,(big, in my opinion) to rebuild things isn't always possible. If it's possible for you because you have the money, more power to ya, and bless ya, but a lot of us won't go that route, CANT go that route.
My friends own the shops I take it to. How did they get to be friends? We were each others customers. The old, stop in with coffee and doughnuts when you haven't needed their services for a while, and being retired, they don't use mine still work.
Relationships still account for something. Even in this day and age of seemingly selfish times.
