Hi Rich, (finally!! a guy who isn't afraid to use his real name)
I hope you do keep us posted of your progress. It's a great learning tool for us all. As more of you guys use the methods I constantly ramble on about, I think it will become apparent just how simple it really is. I just hope I don't talk my self out of a job!!!
Believe it or not, it's much easier to teach a guy who has never done any of this type of work before, because they are the ones who will actually pay close attention and follow every rule. I ran into the same problem teaching newbies in the body shop. The guys straight out of high scool with no formal training would hang on my every word and pick it right up, whereas the guys who had gone to "auto body school" THOUGHT they had all the answers and wouldn't listen to anything.
Male ego is our own worst enemy!!!
