I use all data all day long, new version sucks, buy older generation version. Still sucks but not as bad. The labor hours half the time are wrong too.

Was talking with a buddy, what if you partnered with a school to do this garage? (like GRCC or something) You have students be the techs, they can earn $$ while they go to school. (And maybe even credit?) And you could get grants to offset cost... Hmm.

What happens when someone needs a part that cannot be had locally, car cannot be lowered/moved for 3 days?

What happens when you lift someones car and it looks like the red bmw?

What happens when you assist someone and you snap a bolt on their car? Who pays for the time to extract it, and repair it?

Also seeing how some projects have gone (month long brake job on benz), trans fix on g, etc do you trust yourself to work on other peoples cars, or what do you do in those cases?

In theory its nice but praticality the amount of issues that could arrise having someone do own work are huge. Shit breaks you need more parts or see unexpected things that need to be ordered as well and then you'd need somewhere to put car while its down and out.

If rolled out on blocks then would need gated storage area which means more liability insurance and all that other shit.

Umm Bullshit? My uncle owns a shop and they have no garage, he parks vehicles that are waiting for parts outside regularly. If it gets vandalized, stolen, or messed with, the person's insurance covers it. Exactly the same as if it was in your driveway awaiting repairs. You roll it out on dollys, and you put it on blocks. It's simple.
