    I apologize in advance to anybody who owns one but I have this tremendous hate for minivans. So to me its only apporpriate, justified and deserved.

    For any Hack N Pack Shop fans.


    I am thinking of doing something similar to fix the crushed bedside on my yellow truck.

    When I bought my Yellow truck, it came with a lot of shitty body work in it, so I am going to clarify which is mine and which came with the truck.

    Not Mine:

    No pics but it DID happen years ago.

    A co-workers son had an accident that caved in the driver's side door. He asked me to help him repair it. I pulled the dent as well as I could (all he had was a dent puller, not wanting to disassemble inside door to do it right, no dollies, no body hammers) and then I told him it would make the bondo too thick unless we did it right. He only cared that it looked good until he could find a new door.

    Soooo, I pulled dent as well as I could and caked on the bondo for him. When I sanded it, it needed a couple more coats. He said he wanted to finish it. I left. He painted over it "as-is" and came to work next day saying I did the body work and that's why it looked like that! BS!

    That was the LAST time I ever did a repair without doing it the way I knew it should be done and NEVER left a repair without finishing it. Lesson: NEVER half-a$$ a repair even if the owner wants to. Makes you look bad. I should have known better.

    Luckily, when people at work asked me about it and I explained what happened they knew my reputation as being truthful and his as being less than a stand-up guy. Obviously, I set myself up but I thought he would finish it then claim credit for the job but guess he got lazy and decided to dump the blame on me. I figure I had that one coming for not insisting to fix it the right way or not at all. Let this be a lesson to you if someone asks you to do a "temporary" repair.

    Yikes... I shouldn't be cringing because my truck is a cosmetic nightmare, but I mean really, how can you not finish welding a seam shut or just repair all of the rust while you're at it. (this isn't directed at you @jjester6000 I'm just talking in general) but I'll have to post some of the shoddy body work I did to mine. At least there's no rust and its 90% the same color...
