So I got a new job. I got a job as a mechanic for a decent sized company, acceptable pay considering I have no documented experience in the field. Worked today, pulled a big block out of some piece of shit Ford truck. Starter on an SVX, couple brake jobs. All in all, I'm happy with the job, let's hope it lasts. I also welded up the exhaust on my Jeep, at least so it stops rattling, maybe tomorrow I can get to the crack in the manifold and do the brakes. I also got the locking lugs off since I didn't have a key for them. The shop's got everything I need and they let me use their tools, BIG PLUS that I don't have to lug my tools around. Shit they even have a mandrel pipe bender, so I'll be making exhausts for my vehicles also. My boss has a SVT Lightning, 700 cranks HP, 580 or so to the wheels. This is a fucking monster. And that's that. , I'm happy.
