Exclamation Time for a new job...

So I'm in the market for a new job; painting cars is great and I love it to pieces, but when there's nothing to paint, I make zero money. Screw that. I know a few guys on here work at shops/dealerships, figured I'd ask if anyone knows of anything in the Colorado Springs area. I'm ASE certified in suspension and steering and failed the brakes cert because of the hydro-boost section. Seriously, how often do you see that setup on daily drivers? My main weaknesses are diagnosis, wiring/electrical and diesels. Other than that, I'm pretty solid in most anything else. Brakes, clutches, tune-ups, driveline work, tires and general maintenance.

I have my own tools, can MIG weld and want to get back to turning wrenches.

So if anyone has an opening at their place, let me know. I'm still "employed" but I'm looking for somewhere to land before I jump.

I pulled 9 people out of the snow last night and made $60. Just do that with your civic! I also don't charge but if they offer im not saying no.

Saw this on pirate, Lovell racing

We need a full-time experienced mechanic / fabricator to prep our pro-light and Ultra 4. This person will travel to races and be on the road with the team. We're talking everything from scraping mud / washing the truck to TIG welding on new builds. Must be self motivated (solo work in the shop) and able to work in a team environment (at the races). Based in Colorado Springs, CO.

We have a great volunteer crew at the races and need help with the work in between races. Pay based on experience.

Interested? Please e-mail me at [email protected]

Eh, I'd rather not drive to f'n Calhan every day; going 30 miles south to the armpit of Fountain sucks enough already.

Did not know that... I'm not on IH8MUD or Pirate or much else for that matter. Going to talk to Aspen Auto off of Tutt and Powers tomorrow, then go next door to HonestAccurate; they put up an ad on ppwfc today.

And today I did nothing at my job; left early though.

I guess... figured you may want to barter a rolling chassis or something; I didn't mean turn-key.
