why don't you get a few certifications ad work as a mechanic?





BTW: I'm looking for some steel (steel because cheap) wheels for my focus, any suggestions where to get ones that fit on SVT?

Because I wouldn't make no where near what I can doing what I do now. Or at least in the short term. It's much easier for me to pick up another sleep study job and my long time friend will be my boss and he'll be the only one I have to deal with and I can work when ever I want. Really it's win win for me except the fact I will have to wait for another W2 to come in at the end of the year.



It's going to hard to find steel wheels that fit a focus unless you buy steel wheels that fit a mustang and deal with the hella poking out they'll do due to the off sett being way different. You could order custom steelies but then we're talking buying new rims which cost some money when you could just get some different ones. Why do you want some steelies?


Oh and I bet your boy is getting huge, I know how you feel. Mine always wants to go outside and work on the cars with me. Really makes me proud I didn't have to push him towards cars

Because I need to try and fix my 5 spokes, or send em to get fixed, or sell at some low price and get different ones.
It's mostly just cosmetic but the there are some bent edges (fortunately only edges).

I need new tires for both my foci. One of my 6 spokes as a bend on one of them. I don't feel it so I guess it's ok lol
