I once heard- if you are surrounded by idiots- why did you let them surround you????

I DO know what you mean, tho. A good portion of the population- if they were TVs, I'd be looking for the control that lets you turn up the brightness.

That's the way I am. If I used it, I know where it is before I start the engine. And I keep my tools very organized. I haven't left anything in an engine yet.

i have. that's why i learned that i needed a better procedure, to keep track of my tools.

another thing that helps me is my roll around tool cart. i can keep the tools i am using right close at hand, but out the way of moving parts.

Cinder- I have known the gent that runs this place since about 1982. About 10 miles from Winchester VA, perhaps the finest frame-off restorer of classic cars in the US. Watching their mechanics is like watching a surgeon. Have seen, in their shop- Cords, Dusenbergs, Stutz-Bearcats, as well as Mercedes, Rolls-Royces and the like.

The videos are real, and he REALLY is that bouncy and energetic.

I'd thought about UTI's Mercedes Benz program. Their techs wear lab coats...

Hey! We doubt talk about UTI when I'm around. I'm a techer, we wear boots, jeans, and work shirts and do real work and get greasy. Don't tell Haile I said bad things about UTI.

I'll have to wait until I get home and can get on my laptop to watch the video.

I don't know what UTI means to you guys but I can tell you it means Urinary Tract Infection in the medical field.
