When dropping off a 40+ year old car that hasn't even been touched in 10 years, you have to do a few things. 1: Attach a blank check to the car. Otherwise, don't even waste my time! 2: Do not attach a time frame to the car. It will be done when it's done; it's not easy finding parts for ancient vehicles and there will be layers of "broken" on project like this. 3: Do not call every day asking "is it done yet? Is it done yet?" See #2. Again, I'll fix one thing and find two more things. That's how it goes. If you have an ancient jalopy that's sat in a barn for a decade or more and can't abide by those three simple rules, don't bring it to me. Either fix it yourself, sell it to someone else, or tow it to the junkyard. Oh, that brings me to #4: When you try fixing the car yourself and fail, the first three rules still apply. The last two weeks at work have sucked. I don't want to see that little British POS car again... but I know I will, since it ain't fixed because the customer's budget and time frame were wildly unrealistic!
