    Hey man, I know people give you a lot of shit for starting out as kind of a dope. I just wanted to let you know I really enjoy this thread. I'm cheering you on. This could turn out really well. Good job.

    Ok big fucking wrench thrown into plans....... like what in the actual fuck, Shop doing the body work and fabrication is closing the doors by the end of next month... I havent paid for fabrication yet but ive paid for the full amount on body/paint, well its looking like by the end of next month im going to have a primer grey civic in my garage ready for paint and no engine in it... but on the bright side theres lots of stuff I can be doing ex: installing new brakes/suspension/interior/wiring ... but blows losing money and have to come out if pocket to find another painter and fabricator for the swap

    the guy doesnt have it... hes closing shop and filing bankruptcy and waited till two week beforehand to tell me ... I'm probably going to get stiffed on the tools I sold the shop on a credit acct I will get charged back on also and I legally can't go after them until they go 30 days behind it's a big shitty situation the techs left on wens from not getting paid , I havent been fucked yet but the bridge is coming soon they have to be out before the 10th and my car is in same condition as last pictured, he saysss it will be primered and stuff brought to my house, I paid them 5,550 which I have proof of what should I do ? also he is incorporated it would be sueing the shop and that can only get its value well if its bankrupt... its a tread lightly situation too because I also have to try and not ruin the snap on relationship and deff get bent on the large account
