Helping hand.

Have my son helping me in the garage. His first dash pull. Heater core on a acquaintances 95 mustang. Kind of a rough car but good practice for him.

Re: Helping hand.

That's cool, my dad hated working on vehicles, so it was something we never got to share. (He died in 1992) Be thankful for what you have young man.

Re: Helping hand.

Looks like you two have it under control. I remember very well my step father and I rebuilding a few engines under the big oak tree when I was about that age. Learned a lot

Re: Helping hand.

He enjoys it when he's in the mood, or when there is money involved. I never had these opportunities as a kid so I make sure he has all the advantages I did not. He's picked up on auto Trans work pretty good for his age and is kind of running with that.

Re: Helping hand.

Consider yourself very lucky you have a son to share that with, this is what I got:

Actually, my daughter used to like to work with me on cars. They bought a 13 Fusion when they got back stateside and with the warranty they got on it, she's a little disappointed that she can't work on anything. Probably just as well, she's never worked on anything that complex on 4 wheels. Wings, maybe, not wheels.

Re: Helping hand.

Often tried to teach my son about cars , but not really interested or wanting to get his hands dirty . Suppose he had the attitude , why bother ? whilst Dads there to do whats needed . Likewise his best friend whose dad had his own plumbing business , didn't want to know.I remember my dad and uncle pulling engines out with a rope sling through a pole .

This one does, and he's more likely steal your tools than help. Twice I had to take a screwdriver away from him... he earned his name the first week we had him: Bandit. I had preference to "Thieving Little Bastard" but it would fit on an ID tag.
