RE:Diablo Door Project started....

i just took my bumper and fenders off yesturday, and put them back on today. Its easy :tongue: dunno what your talking about!!

But on a side note, how is Wyotech? Which location did you choose and what classes are you taking in it? Im highly interested in wyotech, or other similar schools like VC-tech or nashville auto diesel, or something like that... but wyotech is my first choice. Would you recommend it?

I'm thinking of taking classes at UTI when I a get chance. The total length of the class is one full year. They have a branch in Pheonix, if I've got time between deployments I'm gonna take advantage of this.

Hey Josh, if you're looking for a school in Phoenix, check out AAI, Arizona Automotive Institute. My freind goes there, and thats probably where I'm gonna go. They aren't as focused on book owrk, and much more hands on than UTI. Theres a reason they call UTI "Un-Trained Idiots."



Kooter, hopefully that door project looks good! I've seen it look good, but also look dumb. It depends on the paint/kit scheme, I guess. Get those pics up!

I've seen WyoTech, my grandparents live in Laramie. I was gonna go there a while back to build computers.

AAI? Hm... gotta look into this!

Loosen a bolt and the fender slides out from under the hood hinge.
