Just curious what range of skill levels we have here for people who work on their own vehicles.
Holy crap! Is that with platinum backings, and tungsten pads? That's ridiculously high. It's just brakes people!:rules:I do most of my own and alot of my friend's stuff too. I just can't stand to see a shop charge what they charge for stuff I can do for just the cost of parts. I was in a shop for an alignment this week and someone else had brought their 2006 F*** in for a brake job. They quoted him $897. I almost fell out of my chair.
Well, I can pretty much do anything I want. Mechanical as well as body work. Only two areas I am not comfortable working on. They are auto trannies( beyond adding a shift kit, swapping out a TC, or changing fluid/gasket/filter - the easy stuff - no rebuilding however )and differentials. Just don't touch either. Also, all these new sensors and computer crap that you need all kinds of special equipment for are obviously something your average guy has issues with. Who can afford a Million dollar diagnostic computer system? I think my desire to work on cars went down proportionately to the engine being covered in hoses, wires, sensors, etc... and vanishing.Just curious what range of skill levels we have here for people who work on their own vehicles.
I'm from a family that owns an auto conversion buisiness. If I didnt work on my own cars I'd be kicked out of family reunions.Just curious what range of skill levels we have here for people who work on their own vehicles.
