I've built sheetmetal brakes, a sandcasting rig and forge, and various other oddities out of stuff lying around, but a professional shop mechanic I ain't...
trust me, you got what it takes, and you can explain it a lot better than i can,, thats why my hands do the talking... i sucked at teaching new mechanics at gillette, so the made me a subject matter expert,,, ( if it was broke beyond repair they got me )

LOL, the world doesn't work that way anymore... I know full well that if I were to get hired at an auto shop, I'd make 90% of the "pro's" look like monkeys in pretty short order, but you get hired on your credentials, and mine say that I'm a radar nerd or an air traffic controller...

I'm most definitely a "car guy", I'm just saying that getting a job wise, I've got zero credentials as a mechanic.

I'm sorry, bit have you seen the retards that dealerships hire nowadays? No skills at all. If the computer can't tell them how to fix it they don't even know where to begin. Mechanics aren't "mechanics" anymore they are simply parts swappers. That being said. I'm sure you could do it.
