then you get that one guy you have literally given work away for when you were in a bind earlier on and now he thinks he can get a full frame off resto for 10k. This one guy is getting just that in our shop and the latest inquiry was about fixing some hack work on a frame. "Oh, just weld it up, it should only take a few minutes." REALLY? Then why don't YOU do it then!?!? But doesn't want to spend a dime more on it. Buys all this aftermarket junk and just expects everything to fit fine and dandy but doesn't want to pay extra cause the parts he gets are soo cheap.
