No, no you didnt take any money. Do you feel i should have paid you something? Do you normally pay someone who is supposed to fix something and doesnt?

As for the "parts" thing, I do believe it was you who lost the O-Rings since they werent properly taken off and stored when the rail was removed. As for the metal clips to hold the fuel rail down,well, yes i did lose them trying to undo what you did, when you seemed to have more or less given up.

As for you working late, quite honestly it isnt any of my concern. You're the one who decided to start pulling parts off the car which didnt need to come off for you to replace the starter. Had you known what to do, the job probably wouldnt have taken you more than 2 hours

The hole is bigger and the tape was sucked in but in such a way that a peice was still folded up and kept the strip from being completely sucked in. There was two disconnected vaccume hoses Plus there was a couple of brackets which were left over and the rubber flap for the heater/cabin part.

A "FREE JOB"?! What free job did you do? I didnt ask for you to remove parts and put them back i asked for the starter to be changed which it never was. You did absolutely nothing but waste mine and your time.

It's amazing that Charlie didnt need to drop the tranny, he didnt need to remove the manifold, injectors, fuel rail, and everything else which you did. It's also truly amazing that it only took him like 1.5 hours and not 6+, start to finish.

There is no point doing anything if you're not going to do it right...and if you cant do it atleast put everything back together like the way you found it.

You sit there and go "Poor me, they're dissing me"...put yourself in my shoes... i waste 8 hours of my time to get my starter done which never gets done and i get my car back and its barely running and i get some extra parts to boot...nice!

Since you were committed to doing the work for someone that drove that far away, the appropriate thing in my opinion and this is what I would of done is to call in to work telling them you can't make it.

You really have to make a choice, its either you stick to your full-time job or you go into business fulltime fixing cars. You must allot the time for finishing the job, especially a customer that travelled a great distance to give you their business.

I don't think youre a bad guy but some planning is needed when you take on these projects.
He isnt a bad guy and it isnt like i had to camp out in his driveway until his shift was over. i just didnt like the fact that things werent put back together and the solution to the car not running was putting tape to cover the hole up and the huge waste of time. While the tape was my idea it was better than his suggestion of trying to keep the car at 2k RPM so it wouldnt stall...sure its a peice of cake if you never have to stop your car.

where does it say those wheels fit a BMW also on that site? IT says they fit camero's thats nice, where dose it say its the same as BMW.

5x4.75 is NOT the same as 5x120mm.

Holy shit i did the conversion for u.


EDIT: Plus Camaros and s-10s are not most GMs, they're are far more 5x100 and 5x114.3 (sunfires, cavs, grand ams, malibus....etc)
