Hey Scotty! Big fan, love your work. Have you thought about making any videos about interior restoration? Have you done it yourself?
Hi Scotty. My Dad wants to give me his 1975 corvette. It’s been on and off the road since I’ve been around. Lately it’s off the road (15 years in his garage without moving) it drove in there after a corvette specialist ran through it and gave it a clean bill of health. The car has 75k miles and isn’t cosmetically in the greatest shape. He would let it go but only if it’s trucked to this higher end shop for new hoses, carb, fluids and tires. The owner told him between 3-4K to get the car rolling again. Is it worth the investment. I’m not the most handy but I know my way around enough to get it going on my own but he doesn’t want to give away a project! it has some cracked paint. Faded paint. It’ll never be flawless which I kind of like. I’m gonna drive it! I see them with a list of receipts for around $10-$12 dollars. Is this worth my time? I would keep it forever but are they reliable enough to last for awhile only being driven a few thousand miles a year?
Hey soctty my dad has a 97 jeep grand cherokee Laredo and if my dad drive his car often it will not want to start up with out pressing on the gas pedal multiple times or wont start up for a few days and when he drives the car it spits and sputters then sometimes die on him driving down the road or at a red light. And the strange part is it doesn't bring up any coverage at all. And the battery is brand new and the starters brand new the problem wont go away. Any idea to what the cause might be?
Good morning Scotty I have a 95 f150 with the 300 inline six with an m50d 5 speed transmission, I did a cab swap about 10 months ago left it parked for 6 months while i was on deployment and when I came back everything was working fine until about 2 days later my windshield wipers would try and work you'd hear the relay work and the wipers would move a little bit, then my high beam light would come on and so would both turn signal lights. Any power I apply to the heat would make the wipers extend fully but I would have to play with the switch to make them fully seat to where they should be. I replaced everything from the relay the turn signal stock and the wiper motor and it hasn't fix anything. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you Scotty!
Hey Scotty, your thoughts on a used Mitsubishi Montero??
