I've fixed my car with spray paint and duct tape before... but never raped anyone. Is that what I was doing wrong?

Thought that was a crowbar and long flat tipped screwdriver.

That's right. It if moves and it's not supposed to, duct tape it.

It if doesn't move and it's supposed to, WD-40 it.

Done.

I bet I got hit up in parking lots at least a dozen times in SoCal.  Like I was going to let some guy who looked like he was tweaking handle fixing the dents and dings in a classic jag.

However, I did come out of the store later to see him and his partner plying on the bondo to another car.  Made me want to stay to see what kind of an idiot would entrust their car repairs to a couple of guys hanging out in a Ralph's parking lot.

I'm in the process of fixing up a '78 Fiat Spider... It needs some serious bodywork, but it runs.. Whenever I stop at a gas station, it never fails to get some "I can fix that body for you for $200"...

Sometimes several of those in a single stop..

*sigh*.

I was selling a Sentra a few years back with "you cannot just fix body damage, the frame is bent" in the craigslist ad.  I also mentioned it on the phone when they called and asked about it.

A half dozen people wanted to see it and all of them said "oh, you can't just replace the door. The frame is bent"
Finally someone decided they could just replace the door.  I said "I don't think so, but you're welcome to give it a shot"
I see the car every once in a while.  The wrong color door is bungee corded closed.

Obviously, submitter hasn't seen those pop-up windshield repair places that appear in big parking lots from time to time.

The latest hotness with "pop-up" parking lot businesses around here are selling ...raw meat.

CSB: there's a pikey handyman in my area that I let seal my driveway. Figured eh, it's just tar, not too much to fark up. He got about 10 sq. ft. done before his nozzle broke (I'm pretty sure it wasn't a euphemism). Came back the next day and actually finished, so I payed him, with a check made out to his baby momma. Or sister (or both?).

Couple months later, I wake up from working the night shift to hear two voices in the garage (It's just me and my dad here, and I wasn't in the garage), and what-do-you-know, the same pikey handyman was "helping" my dad with some bodywork on his old bimmer.

/his shoes looked like they were from 1920!

I had a random guy drive by my house in a pickup truck, offering meat out of coolers in the back.  Um, how about no.

You should have told him you prefer meat on skewers.

I used to do on-the-spot automotive glass installation so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

That's about the most involved work you can do on a vehicle on-site and believe me, you run into challenges because of it... that was half the fun of the job.

Body work though? Yeah you kinda require a shop and paint booth for good results... and even then it can be tricky depending on the skill and resources of whoever does the work.
