    If it wan't for bad luck I'd have none at all.

    After 8 WEEKS of bs promises and very little work, this is what I'm left with.

    Truck is not useable.

    $2600 invoice all labor??, I had to supply parts because garage couldn't, parts are still not installed nor is truck back together. :yow!:

    I'm hoping that the judge sees it the same way.

    It must have been the building inspector of your salt shed that did that!

    Jk, I really hope you get heavily favored in court for this, I don't know if it was covered in another thread but what did the truck go in for in the first place? That is unbelievable!

    That is/was my 99 salt truck.
    If it was my 09 someone would be 6ft under.

    You still haven't said what was wrong with it or why they did what they did or what they were trying to accomplish

    It went in for a loss of power in drive and fluctuating rpm at idle in mid-SEPT.
    I tried to get it back 3 days after I dropped it off, but I listened to all his false promises.
    I shoulda known better. I'd been dealing with him for 2.5 yrs , never again tho ,and he's a tenant of mine to boot. :dizzy: :dizzy:

    WHY would ANYONE do that to fix a fluctuation of power issue? I'd hate to see the engine compartment!

    That aint nothing a little Duct tape couldn't fix.:dizzy:

    On a more serious note, Holly crap !!!!

    You might be able to get the truck declared totaled and take him to court for the full amount of the truck. You have a better chance of getting whats owed to you in a civil lawsuit ( I think that's what it's called) as apposed to a small claims lawsuit.

    Thanks for makinng me laugh this morning.
    It's a Ford so I doubt it. On a serious note I really can't beleive that somebody gave you your truck back like that, I'd be pissed. He had no clue what he was doing and should be shot. Finding someone to fix his mess will be a reaql chalange now. Good Luck

    Heck Paul its because I know you, cause that is just unbelievable. Bring it to a dealer and it would cost more than the truck is worth. Get some estimates, if someone is willing to give you one, and sue his a$$. Goodluck with that.
    PS looking forward to doing lunch this week.
