  1. Youtube will help you my friend. Just watch tons of videos, then build up your experience and tools slowly. Start with small tasks, such as fluid changes and headlight bulb changes, things like that. You're lucky you have the space though.....I have a sloped dirt driveway and that's it. If I want to do work, most of the time I have to drive to a parking lot and do it there.
  2. by the way The car was fluid filmed recently, and it is extremely dirty. That's what all the black stuff is on the rocker. The dirt stuck to the fluid film that was on the wheel well. I'll have to give it a good wax/sealant. If rust reappears, that would really suck but hey, maybe I can learn to weld. I could always buy another Cobalt if I really wanted in a few years.
  3. better late than never.....was really busy lately https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KOLj-BEn2Jk3dopoAVsifqXZeEybuP6O https://drive.google.com/open?id=1h5_qqEN7kyVJeq7se8rgmsNqDjjmjeto https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Wx_WqnOSuAEgIgiT4-ZDTwq-fL5cqlJn https://drive.google.com/open?id=1guTGss1Y_9e-f5ROhm7IDRyllWeAYJ0P Roof was repainted...before https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hyX-7RG-S3OqOHzuSj2SLlNCThbhY6oC after https://drive.google.com/open?id=1o67viZdgJwYUMPnS4KgjOjLLwSmGh7YZ A few things didn't come out perfect, that door line is a little warped, but there is no rust which is all I care about. The instructor at the school said I can bring it back next school year if I notice any rust bubbles appear, maybe I would, depends on how it goes. If I notice a few bubbles, I'll just deal with it.
  4. Yeah that's what my .......was for. This is why we can't have nice things
  5. ...... crap, I completely forgot to get some pictures, I'll try and post some this weekend.
  6. I picked up the car today. They did a really good job on all of the paint and the dents. They did a good job fixing up the rust also. I'll try and get some pictures soon.
  7. Yeah, they're pretty busy and they only have a few kids who are skilled enough to work on customer's cars. I'm REALLY hoping I'll get it back by the end of this week, we'll see.
  8. Yeah I was just expecting the rust spots. I told them they can do whatever they want on the car though. Yeah looks like they repainted the entire back end, it sure does look really good. I'll have to ask what they're going to charge me again, but when I dropped it off they said around 350 for labor. They also stated multiple times that most of the price of the job would be the materials, so let's hope I'm not charged too much. As for being satisfied, heck yeah I am! Looks like a new car. I'll have to wait and see the other spots. Once I get the car back, I'll have to take before and after pictures of everything to show what they did. This definitely wouldn't be worth it at a normal shop, but for cheap, why not. Only thing that sucks is having to wait so long. I'm probably going to get it back the weekend of the 21st.
  9. Update: This is not related to the repair in question, but a different one. The car is almost done, and I've started to get some pictures of it. They've taken care of other cosmetic issues as well. They redid my back bumper and they sent me a few pictures yesterday. This is before https://drive.google.com/open?id=1z33YETX6iUFbVSGBN1Mh2yIltX0cLtyu https://drive.google.com/open?id=1q8LRU6-KlTdlUkeE_BZx0S2w2OThpGST This is now https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Yuk38M9Eeek58y1dGr1jAiHvaOXo4eWH https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MJIdGlsHi4kxnmzT4LqRwL-QANrn-7or Looks pretty good I must say!
  10. Hi there, When buying a used car, there is always a slight risk. If there is no warranty on the car, best thing you can do is give it a good inspection and a good test drive. It might be a good idea to have a mechanic come look at the car also. Make sure to inspect the body panels and undercarriage also.....you want to be wary of rust.... If you end up buying one from a dealer, try and get one with a warranty if you can. That way you can be sure if you have any problems they'll be covered. Good luck in your search.
  11. That thing is just......dear god. I don't like most suv and crossover things in general, but that Ferrair SUV is even worse in my opinion. Some companies just need to stick to cars, you just can't make a sporty SUV in my opinion. It does not work.
  12. As for the weather, it's currently quite nice right now. It reached like 50f today. We've got like 6-8 inches of snow on the ground. We need some rain to wash all the salt and junk of the road. As for welding, youtube has helped alot. It doesn't really seem SUPER difficult, just rather and the fact that you certainly won't want to screw up. Plus I'd need a welder and all that equipment, and also an enclosed space to work on the car.
  13. well...thank you so much Nate, that's mighty nice to hear!
  14. Would you mind taking a picture of the fin? Some sort of glue must be holding it on.
  15. Make it a sleeper. It'd be pretty funny.
