What i'd give to be able to fabricate or hang duct work all day again!!
Because of the flexibility issues? Maybe it is time to be a supervisor or own your own company!

I was an auto mechanic for 20 years and got out of it 10 years ago because of my back. Getting under the dash of a sports car (or any car!) is not good for a bad back!

I couldn't even imagine getting under a dash,I can see how working in and under a car would be tough on the back.

Flexibility is part of my problem along with sciatic nerve pain,after surgery I still have pain through my rear pockets down my legs into my calf and my left foot has been numb since 08' which gives me a balance problem??
I've had my own business since 1990 in the heating/cooling industry working in residential and commercial new const. as well as service....That's what happened to my back.

I worked for an Acura dealership and often would have to do underdash work. Those NSX sports cars were a real pain to work on- literally. I was out for a week after working on one once.

I had the sciatica and neuropathy issues for a long time but through the use of supplements and essential oils (both topically and internally) in addition to no longer crawling under dashboards, I am now pretty much pain free and the numbness has been gone for a year and a half now. Just prior to me finding that stuff I was in the middle of scheduling surgery! Dodged a bullet there.

Dodging the surgery bullet is always a good thing

This kind of thing makes me happy that I'm so small and flexible. I can curl up under the dash of most cars without a problem.

Another reason I love my IH's...

For the most part I dont have to crawl under anything.. Everythings out in the open, not covered with a bunch of useless crap..
Need to work on something in the dash? Just remove the dash face... Even to work on the transmission I just have to remove the trans cover from inside the cab...
