Re: Looking For Best Repair System (Equipment)

Having good equipment is only half the picture. Once you have acquired the kit you want, then you have to learn how to use it properly, and practice until it is second nature to you. Then, knowing how to use the equipment is not the end of it either. You also need to be trained what a finished repai...

Re: What is your experience with tents?

Rather than using a tent, we have a small motor home that we purchased used in 1998 and had permanent signs put on it... it sounds impressive... and really it is a nice RV, but we paid less for it than a car would cost. It is fully equipped, though, and last summer we had it equipped with an awning,...

Re: Amazing New Procedure For Windshield Drill

Wow.. that is an amazing story... makes my knees weak just reading about it... I am such a wimp when it comes to stuff like that. But I must add a serious comment because of my husband's recent 8-week fight with a nasty staph infection (that we think was introduced into his spine via an injection pr...

Re: Russian Roulette

When having the client sign my waiver, I say ''this paper says if the patient dies on the operating table, the doctor is not at fault'' ... everyone is familiar with that procedure... I then explain thatits not likely to happen, but we are working with broken glass that might be unstable. I give the...

Re: Lost confidence

I advise every newbie to practice, practice, practice ... get you a scrap windshield from an installment shop and practice until everything feels like second-nature to you. You can simulate stars with a spring-loaded center punch, and make bull's eyes with a steel bead on a thick rubber band (hold i...

Re: Does your car you drive..........?

I have a 1994 chevy s-10 pick up truck with extended cab. It has 170,000 miles on it. Had the sides and tailgate lettered a few years ago. Recently I removed the ''mobile service'' lettering because as of April 15 I will no longer be providing mobile service except to fleets. I will have a permanent...
