I did that valve cover completely by hand not power tools on that one.

Yeah nice job on that valvecover, I'll give you props for that. Polishing things like that is a real pain in the ****, especially in the corners and edges, and you got right down in there.

I'm thinking once you get a little older you will realize it's not worth it. Life's too short, unless you're getting crazy $ for it but you already said you're cheap.

That sums it up - I pick and choose the things I want to do and pay someone to do the others. And if I can't afford to pay for them, then I don't get them... or I find a cheaper way.

i still think it's the same person. Those 4 "coincidences" i posted are simply too close.
Does that mean he's going to act like a assclown here? No. Back way when, i've pulled stunts like that. For all we know, he has seen our posts about m.net and thought it would be funny to pull their chain.
As long as he doens't act like that here, i don't give a flying fluck.

Hell, if he admitted to making a AE just to watch m.net go apeshit, i would give props.

The only reason i polish is for just a little bit extra cash, and for something when im off work. Also i just enjoy polishing for some odd reason.

Anyone want some polishing done?

Damn, I found this thread too late. I think the little over inflated Fast and Fussy - teen was truly entertaining. But the best was the fact that Bob Hill joined the flaiming in the end. Laught my *** of.
