    Much can be learned from crappy work!
    (As someone who has had to fix more than one crappy, cobbled chop job, I speak from experience..........)
    It'll truly help the guys that are novices or at the "apprentice" level.
    Good luck in your search!!!!!!!!
     
  7. Thought for the day.
    We all have had ...... let's just say "unpleasant experiences" with "cobble job work" done by previous owners.
    But, we are all previous owners to those who now own what we sold.
    Let's hope OUR WORK was better than the work we read about, performed by other previous owners!;)

    Not to hijack this thread but keep it alive . This was a crappy attempt by a now out of business nz shop at a top chop and just guess the window opening size. Ok so it's only 3/4 inch too big. But we needed to Put our hands in there to keep the rear window up. Crappy work.
