I have been wanting this for a while, and I just happened to meet the right guy on CL that works at a local (reputable) parlor, when I sold an entertainment center to him.
We ended up hitting it off, and I mentioned how wrenching was a hobby of mine. He has been having some issues with his car, so I offered my services in exchange for his.
This cost me (less parts) changing a PS pump, high pressure line, PS sensor, blower motor resister, and a few other odds and ends on a 2007 Murano
I still have a few more sessions to finish it up. but I am so happy with it
first session took about 2 hours
second session was a little more intense. it took 4 hours
pretty much healed
I'll be going back later this week to darken the "seed of life" outline of the vitruvian man.
I do have a question though.
first time, I tipped him $20
second session I tipped him $40, which I didn't feel was enough, but didn't have enough cash on me. how much should I give the guy this next session (he said he's going to put in another 2 hours)
