Well. Here are a few pics of what I can do with stainless steel and a grinder. I skipped a few steps in the pictures because the difference is not that visible in the pictures.

 

 

I REALLY need you to come visit in North Carolina for a few weeks. We'll have a ball.

 

To support my 1973 Mach 1 soon to be 460 & toploader and a 1930 Ford Model A Hot Rod with a 351 Cleveland started as a union pipe fitter (and always will be) - project manager for a large mechanical contractor.

I'm UPS driver. I drive the brown trucks that delivers our parts to our houses. Been that for 6 years and before that I was a mechanic for ten years and yes I do miss it but I get free benefits and a pension and great pay and I am in the international brotherhood of teamsters union so the perks of the job I have now are way better than any perks I received as a mechanic.

This is more than a hobby, its a Passion, its a way of life.

hahaha Unfortunately I am not allowed in your country. {legal problems in my younger years} I could get a waver but that is over a 1000$ and as you know I can use that on my car:P. But feel free to come up north. I do plan on getting a waver at some point but they are only good for a few years. I wish the American government would accept the Canadian Pardon. But I guess it's a matter of give us your money also hahaha.

Wow those pics look all too familiar. I couldnt tell you how many cranes i have put up like that. Its kinda fun doing the install part. I get to do everything from being the guy up on the rail setting the crane to the guy running the mobile. The part i hate is the 120-130+ degree tempuratures up on those in some of these steel mills. But i got lucky and got into a manufacturing plant doing the maintenance on about 400 jibs/hoist and overhead cranes. got a contract for the next 3 years and it only about 20 min from my house. :D

I went from the boring field of carrying a gold badge and a Glock to the "exciting" insurance field carrying a Mont Blanc pen.

Well I may not be the first attorney here, but it looks like I'm the only one dumb enough to admit it. I help people get their Worker's Compensation and social security benefits and also chase ambulances from time to time (that's why the Mach 1 needs to stay nimble and fast) Seriously, I have handled a lot of cases in the last 20 years and have never advertised and hopefully never will. Remember 99% of attorneys give the other 1% a bad name.

 

It has been over 30 years since I owned my first Mustang and I have always liked working on cars. I learned to weld a few years ago and my talents would make you all blush . . . oh wait that's the wrong word . . . CRINGE is more like it, but I'm improving each time and I'm smart enough to tack things and let friends who are better welders than I am finish up.

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!

I still get to travel the backroads of Texas/Oklahoma/New Mexico and look for hidden gems in the barns. If I only had more money to buy em'!

I just started working at a security technology company as a mechanical design engineer.. It's only 10 minutes from my house, which is beautiful compared to the 2+ hour (each way) commute to NYC I've been doing for a couple years. Plus I just draw things in inventor all day, play around with QC testing equipment and may be able to play with their CNC and EDM machines with time lol.

Man, I need your skills on repairing a stainless Cobra frame that I'm working on.

That finish looks fantastic.

I'm a Certified Master Automtive Technician... fancy term for mechanic. Been turning wrenches for a long time, lately I've been doing a lot of light truck diesel repair, but I do full service. Have plans to open my own shop in the future. The work I do at home usually funds my projects.
