Hey mr kilmer I live in houston and was hoping to have you work on a truck of mine. I've tried looking you up on the ole interwebs but cannot find you. Are you by chance for hire? Thank you sir

Those aren't bad. I am sure most of us have much worse mistakes.

No bull I've painted several cars with aerosol cans of bed liner paint. No one that saw these cars believed I did it with a rattle can. Granted these were mostly offroad cars aside from a 72 impala. The texture blends in so well and naturally hides all blemishes. Even small dings can be filled in if you apply several coats to that area. I would sort of wet sand it with a green scrub pad and water and it would take most of the excessive bumpy texture down. The result was a cool flat black paint job that's very durable and costs around $100 in paint

Your BIGGEST mistakes are nothing compared to the mistake Honda made on my 04 Honda Accord but I don't think they were "MISTAKES". They were more like a "F**k It" type attitude...

What tools should I buy first? I'm starting to buy new tools set but don't know where to start.

Hey Scotty, you say you are a Do it Yourself kind of guy, but all the viewers have found the truth about you on this video. We all saw your Master Mechanic at min. 4:30 supervising your work from the top of the Porsche. Plz introduce him in one of your future videos and give some credits .. keep up the great job Master Scotty ;)

A friend at work used an impact wrench to install spark plugs in a forklift. Of course the plug broke. He no longer works there.

I've seen someone forget to pump up the brakes after brake job and run a 4 runner right into/through a RV .I've also seen a lube guy put window washer fluid in the suspension fluid res on a Land cruiser . I seen someone fill up a Land cruiser with diesel the list could go on and on and this is at the dealership I'm talking how bout dat. . ..

This is the fourth or your videos I've watched and after this fourth video I discovered that I wasn't just watching because there was good information, I was watching because I was thinking that if you just used a few good cuss words here and there, you could be the Lewis Black of auto repair.

Scotty you old nutt, you fix the orange peel by sanding. You need 800, 2000, 5000, 7000, 10000 grit sand papers and use them coarse to fine and even with rattle cans it will look pro. The 7000 and 10000+ grit papers are interchangeable with the polishing compound many people use. Regardless if you paint it yourself or do it in a shop you will have to polish the orange peel off.

The point about a welding torch just to heat up rusted fasteners is true. However, I recommend using MAP gas instead of propane. It is a lot hotter and works a lot better. It comes in kits just like propane only the canister is usually yellow instead of blue. Heck, you can still use it to do plumbing work!

I once had a distributor pulled out of an engine and I dropped a bolt down the open hole into the crankcase. Since then I always plug open holes with a rag or paper towel to keep stuff from falling down into the engine.

Mypointofview (16 дней назад)
LOL, You painted a car and had orange peel. You do know that you have to wet sand new paint to match the original not special tool. Just a little knowledge and some elbow grease. You don't have to have all that special equipment you mentioned.

Biggest mistake: when you go to sleep in your Toyota celica trunk only to realise hours later that you are now locked in the trunk.

Built an engine from the ground and put it in the car, I saw that a frost plug was leaking. I was gonna change it and there was this heater on it. It was my first time changing a plug. I drilled out the frost plug but I had drilled throuth the cylinder and the piston. That is a mistake Ill never do again...

One of the biggest mistakes I used to make was tightening wheel lugs with an air-tool. Always tighten the wheel lugs by hand so the customer can remove them without an air-tool on the side of the road if need be.

Ooh! Good video. Buying cheap batteries is a way to cut corners but not worth it in the long run. Also, appreciate the advice about buying tools you're not going to use more than once.

Love your stuff Scotty. I have to disagree with never painting a car yourself though. When I was young man(we wont go into that) ,I painted my 70 camaro with the help of an older gentleman and it turned out really nice (metallic blue).

Yep. Learned a lesson buying a battery for my 08 slk Mercedes. Cheaped out, it died quickly. Bought another one with enough amps to light up Vegas, not a single problem. Oh, and it's been a great vehicle.

ha... specialty tools. did my first brake job recently. bought the maintenence manual and watched YouTube. GM used a single spring on my drum brakes. manual said to pull up on the spring with locking pliers. cool I have a pair. long story short the spring slipped and I ripped the brake cylinder gasket. they make a $25 tool that pulls both sides of the spring up at once. made the job easy and since the car is already 12 years old it is likely the last brakes... so now I have this tool for a one and done.

Painting cars is worth it. Check out the YouTube vid where a guy paints his Civic with grey Interlux Brightside paint with a roller. I've used the Harbor Freight purple HVLP gun outside with Interlux and it comes out perfectly acceptable.

Why can't people pronounce Porsche correctly? It's pronounced "por-sha", not "porsh". It is a German word, not a French word.

I had a brand new Optima battery bad off the shelf. I've seen a mid-priced Delco go seven years. It's a crap shoot.

Hi Scotty, I think your video's are fun and entertaining, and you say you have been fixing cars 50 years,,,, and I imagine you got your own car similar time, but you say you only paid 500 Bucks for it... WOW that must have been some car in the late 60's for that much money.

When i start my car every morning it makes a rough noise and its a 2012 toyota camr L. But after i do that the noise go’s away and it sounds perfectly fine. My dad use to be a mechanic and he says it’s possible its a cold start even though i live in nevada and the noise goes away within a second of starting it. What do you think i should do???

Worst mistake I keep making in my DIY shop is trusting Parts guys to give me the right parts! Always bring a sample or a picture!
cmscms123456 (1 месяц назад)
Im like this guy, Ive been working on cars and bikes since I was a kid. I learned quick never work on a German made car. Whenever one came into the shop, Id always find a way to sneak into the bathroom and hide, until some other poor sap got the assignment. German car owners are never happy people either... they tend to be full of themselves, thus they bought that BMW, Mercedes or Porsche, but cheap as hell, and don't want to pay to get it fixed... I have friends all the time ask me to help them with their German car, and I refuse every time... Sorry, no...

I made the mistake early in my career trying to always save my customers money by getting cheap or used parts from junkyards and though for certain things that makes sense. Overall you don’t save your customers money and it hurts your reputation when the parts fail not mention the extra time involved looking in junkyards and pulling the parts

Enjoy your vids Scotty! Where can I send some throat lozenges ? 😁😆
I have an old Saab 9-3 that I’ve had for some time now, and I’ve made plenty of mistakes working on it. It’s one of those cars that requires a ton of work, but fun to drive. Electrical problems become an issue though.

What battery do you like, I use to run the champion batteries, but you don't see them anymore, when optima batteries first came out everyone was saying how good they were. We had a bunch of new trucks with them and they didn't last a year they all almost went down at the same time.

One time I put new tires and rims on my car and went out to eat at a restaurant with my girlfriend... *Next thing I knew we were married and she was actually a 15 ft tall leoplourodon and was asking me for about tree-fiddy.*

On jobs like the Porsche : You make a choice. Either spend money on the tools and buy convenience or sweat, swear and bust knuckles. Like a clutch change on some 4WD cars. Faster to pull the engine than drop the trans.

My friend and I fixed the muffler on my parents '58 Chevy Belair, we took a big nail and put about 25 holes in it to make it sound better, like a hot rod, it wasn't appreciated by my dad, I talked him into Duals from a JC Whitney catalog, put glass packs on it and it really did sound good, couldn't sneak home late at night as it woke the whole neighborhood! I loved it though, drove it all thru high school. 283- 2 barrel.

A good friend of mine has a 2013 Mercedes SL 500. He told me a few months ago he had a leaky sunroof. It cost just over $15,000 to replace it and repair the minor water damage that he had on the roof. He told me he had wished he had never bought the car simply because of that. I think your Porsche story applies to all those high end cars. As for me and myself...Honda Accords for the last 20 years. Nothing but maintenance is all that I have spent money on.
