Google is the MOST invasive browser and company on the planet. I do NOTHING with them if I can at all avoid it.
Firefox blocks tracking and fishing attempts and secures passwords against hacking...
User beware...

Google KNEW it was harvesting emails and passwords during Street View drive | Daily Mail Online

I read the articles. Old news back in 2012. And who is naive enough to use unsecured WI-FI these days, I've never had a problem in over ten years of using GOOGLE.
I've got nothing invested, use what works best for you.

Your picture is fine David. Tap your picture and when it displays tap again and it will display as a full size attachment (picture).

UPPER rails and support swayed. Racking it is too much work for such a small pull. Still get time for the pull. I prefer the porto power over the come along any day

square it up and cut it out.

since the car o liner racks can't fit around the particular lift I have in my stall, that means two trips to the parts room to get two hydraulic wheel lifts and you have to lift the front and back separately to put on stands, then get the huge rack to slide under, than the pull tower, and clamps and clamp arms last. You need a two post lift or a snap on scissor lift to pull it off easier. Lot of work for just 1 hour of estimate time. So when possible, I write it up as a "ground pull", which doesn't give me the extra hour to set up but still gives me pull time. Just means I have to do more tramming to ensure it really does not need to go on the rack. In this situation, the lower rails did not sway at all which leaves the upper rails which can be pulled very easily. Work smarter not harder is my theory on this. Things like this are the difference between a tech who can flag 160-300 hours to a tech who can't flag 160.

we had a meeting yesterday about some of things coming down the pipeline which will really help stop comebacks on auto body related jobs. Pre and post scans are one of the things brought up. Not just a normal code reader but something that tells you more and you plug it into the obd2 and then have to go on line and e chat with a guy who diagnoses the car and tells you what to do with it, or at least that's what it sounds like. This is being pushed my manufacturers to combat the insurance companies and their willingness to look the other way, which leads to comebacks and a bad rep for the shop. Not relevant to older cars but with all the new technology like lane assist mirrors that need to be calibrated with special equipment and doesn't throw codes, it's generally for that type of stuff that needs special attention but doesn't alert the tech thru traditional means.

The Pre- and Post-Scan Revolution


Another thing we talked about is our biggest DRP potentially leaving us. The problem is cycle time. This is good news for me if the manager has any sense to him. Body men are in short supply these days. The trend in your big shops is the youth movement. What i mean is, cycle time is brought down cause guys with less experience don't expect to have 200-300 hours of work every month or they/ll be upset. So guys like me are capped to 160-200 hours which keeps me more available to knock out the smaller jobs at a faster time, and that's what's happening. I can see it with my own two eyes. The guys that get more hours have to take a little flak over hoarding cars and sitting on them. The manager gives in cause they've earned that and they don't want to piss off the tech. It's how it should be but due to the constant pressure of the insurance companies it forces the shops to bring in more guys that are less demanding, which should be good for me, here anyways. We'll see. If we lose them and I get laid off I can always take that corporate auto body job with all their statues and marble in the offices. Can get a job in a day nowadays. Christmas gonna good this year so not thinking about that.

Put up pics of that 59 Pontiac roof rear edge repair just finished:

Old car body repair pic dump: Catalina repairs- rear window area, upper

Here is the prize that was in that cereal box, plus a couple shots of rust fixes happening at the bottom corners of the windshield.

I put on my electrician's had today and installed four pendant lights above the sink and counter in my parent's kitchen. Let's just say that I'm glad that I don't have to do that for a living. Kudos to those who do. It was an easy job as all of the wiring was accessible in the attic, but it still took me several hours. Headed out to a ghost walking tour with the wife and oldest daughter... should be interesting.
