    ...15 Min. Kiwi...you're a saint sir. That guy is a rough customer for sure. Pete's one great saying is, "tape is a tool". He needs to invest in placing some on his yapper.

      I still think doing a bumper and a fender job creates more money and less headaches Im on my 5th one today. And have actually made some money with little effort and no complaining. :D

          Thanks and I wanted to add something to my post..... If he is a good body and paint man and he is honest he may be the guy to go to for work on your project. If you have the ability and patience to deal with guys like him and by know way do I mean that with any disrespect, again he may be a real good deal.
          Some people can't take the stress and cant deal with customers, they just dont have the personality, they fly off the handle. Non of that makes them less then honest or the quality of their workmanship.
          Just another view

            Seemed like he was slamming his own work when he said "you get what you pay for".

                Pretty much. But when you take on a job. Your committed to it. If your not a metal worker just a bondo applier. That can create alot more work than needed. Ive seen both sides. . The metal work skills that has tech has here is second to none. We have one as well that application is the was to go of filler. Creates more issues than it should for the whole team.

                When he said "you get what you pay for" I dont think he was making excuses as the the caliber of his work.
                Look at the segment were he points out that trim piece on the roof of that Honda. How its not quite perfect or the fact that the doors shut hard because the door seals weren't the correct type.
                Is that what he is talking about as far as getting. what you paid for? Maybe.
                It doesn't necessarily mean if you went to him for rust/body/paint work you wouldn't be satisfied but maybe if you wanted to put your high end car in the show at Amelia island and you had very deep pockets, this guys shop might not be what you are looking for as far as restoration work.

                He's made loads of videos and does nothing but yell and bitch in all of them. It actually surprises me that he has any customers at all but maybe this is just his way of blowing off steam.

                I get part of what he is saying but glad my car is not there.....If he stopped bitching and less videos he might accomplish the jobs sooner...

                Alright after watching a few other of his videos, I am ready to believe it's all some elaborate joke or put-on. He is cursing out customers by name and giving personal details, and also has videos where his wife is extensively pointing out his personal faults and telling him to quit (in extremely blunt terms). It's all played almost, but not quite, to the edge of camp/comedy. I honestly don't know WTF is going on here.

                    I've seen that guy before. He comes across as a real assclown.
                    He does have some skills but he LACKS humility and humor. Those 2 traits can buy you a LOT of forgiveness and understanding.

                      I know of a restorer up here that treats his customers just like that. I know. I worked for him briefly. When I heard him talk to his customers. I did not want anything to do with the shop. Knowing that those were people I knew from a certain car club I was a member of. They all had money. And he tried bleeding them out of there funds. On a weekly base.

                      Is all acting, you shoud check his channel at YouTube some of the videos are quite interesting, am subscribed, yes he had bad temper, and a bad mouth but seems to know what he's talking about , he show you how to replace quarters, how to properly sand a car, how to use bondo and a lot other stuff.
