Hey; Got an email back from RP, said they have changed the way they score us now, How-Bout-That.

Noticed that, cool! Still needs a little work but it's better. Four of us, as it stands right now have been on here a 'long' time! Also I have bookmarked every confirmed repair i have ever helped with, be interesting to go back and count them one day, and i will.

Do they use the new "green jelly" system for their ratings? Does it count as a 'confirmed repair' if they don't reply? Do we have to take the plastic caps off of new batteries????...........that just makes them wear out faster........nevermind..........

Doesn't look any better this morning. Shop ratings have changed as well.

If I remember right it should be a 45, but it's been awhile, the last truck I did was a 55. Getting older and memory goes first. Lol

My spring has sprung, like I say I remember a 45 or 50, but lately I have done many that have hex head bolts, all newer models. And by the way I do remember all the ones with a 3/8 allen, done lots of them. Lol
