Few Dealer mechanics care to do anything other than Flat Rate parts changing in order to make nearly $100,000 / year for the 20 odd years they can keep up the pace .
I'm proud to not be an uncaring boob like that , yesterday I spent several hours sorting out the taillights , brake lights and turn signals for a Vintage car owner who'd foolishly messed with the wires.......
Everyone standing around watching me , kept insisting I cut wires , install splices etc. , etc. when all that was needed was to spend some time sorting out what faded no color code wire , went where .
In the end , everything worked *perfectly* like it did in 1959 again and no one can tell I was there .
I intensely dislike leaving " Mechanics marks " .
