Any Good Shade Tree Mechanicís?
« on: December 19, 2021, 09:37:22 AM »
Iím looking for someone that has a pretty good mechanical background with older vehicles with a little time on their hands?  I have a 71 Ford F100 that is a ďprojectĒ but I simply donít have the experience to complete and finding help locally has proven to be difficult.  Motor is fine itís just other areas such as rewiring and interior work.  Also looking to get prepped to paint.  Growing up I knew many people that fixed up old cars or rebuilt muscle cars but it seems that is becoming a lost art.  Where did all of the ďgear headsĒ go???😳🤔😳

Sorry my friend time is short with all of us shade tree mechanics, with car prices up everyone is trying to save there rides.

finding someone to paint a truck outside of insurance work is an impossible endeavor, wait averages 12-18 months. But most just say no.

I was just approached with a f100 - crown vic front end And engine swap and had to say no. Just don't have the time and maybe because turning a truck into a car is just the biggest put- off 😆.

Id youtube university the wiring, as of late my voltmeter has been more useful then my scanner trouble shooting and there only a few bucks at harbor freight.

Psalms 127:3-5 3Children are indeed a heritage from the LORD,
and the fruit of the womb is His reward.
4Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
so are children born in oneís youth.
5Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
He will not be put to shame
when he confronts the enemies at the gate.
