sorry forgot to explain pictures

two are of my dads shop where I usually go everyday to make me feel like I have a job and I dream of inventing something that will make me rich and two are of the ccv pcv whatever delete on my intake this is my actual setup that I run on my car and the other are of the shitty ass transmission bolts that strip easily if you don't torque right the first time when changing the filter. I literally had to drill each one out that's why the pic of bolts they have no head on them. so yeah if you ever change your transmission filter be careful with this. when I opened my transmission up this time there was a **** load of metal dust caught by the magnets on the pan and more that it couldn't so my trans may go out soon fml.

My thoughts:

1) It sounds like you are strapped for cash, are you sure it's in your best interest to "invest" in an old BMW of all cars?
2) No offense, but no chance in H**L i would take my car to a place like this. looks a tad shady to me

cornfused

no I am buying a used engine for 500.00 not an intake manifold for that I have like three intake manifolds. and yes it I smart to invest in this old bmw because I can get it running for under 1000.00 as opposed to starting a new project on something I have no idea to work on. and as far as me working on other cars or saying my shop is open to the public I never said that. my uncle built it and he had it running and open to the public but after he got sick he was unable to work and six years later he died of cancer. so now it is just for maintaining or families vehicles/ so yeah. any ways have a good Tuesday guys. I don't know where I am going to get the money for my engine but trust me when I do. I am going to do my best to make this the best project I have done yet. so be prepared for the all new Sherman tank 2014. you can't handle the truth so kiss the tip. lol. peace love and strength

Well, now I know you have a garage filled with stuff and a couple parts laying around. Also you break bolts and blow up motors. You're an unemployed kleptomaniac.
Perhaps clean up the garage, get some technical skill and service peoples vehicles for money?
Vocational school? College? Llc and some certifications? Jesus you have the property and tools but no drive to utilize what you have.

you are right

I was going to go to uti in Houston. I moved there got an apartment was one signature away from it being final and something happened i got lazy.

I couldn't take that leap of faith. So i came back home and have just been basically doing nothing. I want to go to school and become a bmw mechanic but i just don't want to sacrifice drinking and partying to do it.

Also i am scared i will not be able to find a job. So you are right but there has to be a way to make money and have fun doing it. any ways when i find that answer i will let you know

You need to focus on a future for yourself. Get an education and stop wasting time in limbo. You say you are scared you won't be able to find a job after school... you HAVE NO job now......

Go to school pick a bright classmate and offer him a job. Basically you know. Paid on the job they due to lack of customer and if shop successes get workers and run the shop like hitler did. But also tell him the truth that's it's a start. Just an idea for you

Most businesses that you would be be qualified to work for a hard time finding workers that will show up for work, work when they get there, and can pass a drug test. It appears you have all those issues ... lazy, want to get rich without working, can't pass a drug test. You are on a path for being a leach on society or an inmate (which is also a leach on society). You don't like all the crap the gov requires but that is required to support irresponsible folks like yourself. Get your sh!t together!

your right

yeah I know I wish I wasn't so lazy. i don't hate the government it is just sometimes all the licenses and requirement you have to fulfill get a little crazy.

my dad has his own wrecker service and man you have to have insurances on everything it gets insane and the paperwork is crazy to keep up with.

once a year tdlr comes to inspect the business and check all the paperwork and if anything is wrong boom fines/ i don't know the exact details of how it works but i just remember him telling me there is a lot of crazy rules.

yes i am a leach already but thank the lord for my parents support and patience with me.

i still believe and will continue to strive to find my niche/ a place where i can feel free and excel/ thank you
