appreciate all the comments
got a good laugh from babywag, thanx I needed a laugh.
you prob have a point
it is a very young mechanic that works on mainly newer vehicles
that may be a factor,...
but he is doing a good job, I am no mechanic at all
and I just appreciate them willing to even do the body work and mechanic work
all at one shop, a task most shops would not touch for any amount of money.
and I wanted all new components anyway.
thanx again for the advice and the laugh.
