General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

When it comes to my cars, its the right parts or no parts... And on the same note, maybe some of your clients can afford a $3000 to $7000 paint job.... Most people in general could care less about a $7000 paint job... A $1200 paint job from the local dealership would make me happy... If you do not want to be a part of this site than don't return... No one is keeping you here...
Well written. AC Delco for me.

I kinda expected this response from a bunch of people that use the word "ricer" so much. Just plain ignorance..simple as that. I dont expect you all to be frugal with your money.( Much rather spend it on ugly *** rims then quality parts)

Once most of you are old enough to know how the system works & actually move out of your parents houses into the real world & have a life & go see other countries. Then you will understand, until then. Have a nice day.


Please ban me from this site. This is the 2nd time i've asked. I'm sure they will agree now. I hate arguing with people who were not even born when I started my career in the automotive field.

Thank you drive through.
Sounds to me as if you have a problem with us. If that'* the case, why do you even look, let alone post here? We'll not ban you at your request, but rather for our need. Grow up and be a smart-thinking adult (like you claim to be) and stay away if you don't like it here.

Or do you need someone with more maturity than yourself to make that decision for you?

You lump everyone into the same category here, claiming we're ignorant. When I was 16 or 17, I was. That was 20 years ago. I'm sure there was a time when you were ignorant as well, and I'd be willing to bet someone had some patience and taught you the things that you were lacking.

Have some patience with those inexperienced (not ignorant) members here, or don't come here any more.

Why come back? I don't see the need to ASK to be banned, unless you have an addictive personality and just can't seem to pry yourself away? People are banned for different reasons.

And I have too been a painter, and a bodyman, for a few years in Los Angeles when I lived there. I have owned my own little shop, mostly doing custom jobs on older cars and an insurance job now and then. Although this was 11 years ago I learned a long time ago to buy OEM parts (where applicable) and stay away from off shore parts, very few exceptions have held to be true. Restoration parts are even more at risk, try fitting an offshore quarter panel to a 70 Chevelle. We who have been through the BS on most things car related need to show the younger generation (i'm 38 ) what is right and what will give them endless headahes. Hey, it'* all about learning, and why give younger adults a hard time about it?
