- How many projects do you average in a year?
I average about 2 personal projects a year that are big ones for my self and around 3 or so for customers that I have done work for in the past.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
I would ask were they have worked before and what types of jobs did they do then ask a few specific questions about what they say they have done to make sure they have done it.There is a lot of people out there saying there a auto tech and have just got out of school or are just looking the part and our getting there experience working on your car.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
my current project is a 95 mustang that I'm getting ready to take to the silver state classic next year I'm hoping it will be ready but this is a personal project.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
You get a warranty on all work done you would have my number in case any thing was wrong I stand behind my work and will fix any thing that is wrong. All trans actions are documented for the customers protection.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Any one can bolt parts on and say there you go its fixed but did they really fix it. Most parts shops have a guy that will pull codes for you and sell you that 02 sensor or what ever but then you put it in clear the light it last for a while but was that really what was wrong or was there something else wrong that made it go bad. The difference between a real tech and a parts changer is that the tech will go that extra step to make sure that there is nothing else making that sensor go bad not just replace it.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
look over the car and see what it needs then itemize every thing from it needs it now to its at the bottom of the list then sit down and make a plan to fix it. If they us me there already going to be saving money. I'm they guy that was the shop foreman at the dealer charging customers over 100 a hour I'm less than half that and they get the same quality of work.
