Yes, I read my own posts smart guy. I compose and type them as well. What counts to be a mechanic to you then? Brakes? Clutches? No? Plugs and wires/coils? No? Suspension work? Full front and rear suspension rebuilds? No still? How about transmission, t/case and diff flushes? Still no? How about blower installs? Too easy? No? How about custom line lock installs including all of the brake lines and wiring? No? How about HCI swaps on smallblock V8s? No? Turbo swaps? No? How about a full engine build including measuring every single part, purchasing all the parts, managing the machining of the block, assembly, startup, and tune of a blown fuel injected V8 and it's fuel system that produces over 800 HP that has lasted over a decade now with tons of abuse thrown at it? Does that count for you yet?
