1. Is consistent with being able to complete projects on time (I can understand that gremlins sometimes pop up, but most seem to just drop your project when they do)
2. Has their own good working phone that the know how to use (No Bhai i hear the phone ringing but i eh know how to answer it this ting to fancy for meh. Or call meh modda phone she go know how to get on to meh)
3. Owns the land or building their garage is located in.
4. Has no legal problems / warrants out for their arrest or baby mama drama
5. Does try hit you with surprise fees

Ryotech - He is a powerseller on the forum.

Never had any issues with his work. When I make an appointment and I go there, he works on my car and my car alone.

Johnny from Quick Whip.. never had any of these problems. Why do they need to own where they work? People can't rent?

Sup guys

Is automotive electrical a good field to get into?

And is there anywhere locally that does training? Or would I have to shadow some random mechanic in the bamboo?

Nesc has a basic auto electrical program, good starting point imo. But unless you are highly skilled in diagnostic work auto electrical eh making sense.

Take a look at South Main Auto channel on YouTube. They do some in depth diagnostic work. Not just change sensors and clear check engine lights

Yep. Trinidad needs people on that level. 95% of mechanics does just read codes and change sensors even though they aren't bad. Can't properly understand what the heck is the problem.

Get that skill and continue upgrading urself and your tools and. You have a permanent job

Peter in Grant Trace, Beaucarro, but he has too many vehicles right now - Technician
Frankie Boodoo in Ramlal Trace, Warren - Suspension. Got scr.... on a job once. still goes by him.

I have a whole fleet of mechanics working on my car/van/truck.
Why? Somewhere along the line they fail.

Recently my gyul had to help me bleed the brakes on my primera P11 and that was about 7.00pm.
Went by the mechanic the next week to take out the piston and clean the area behind it.
Jackass mechanic takes out the caliper and wanted to pound out the piston!!!!!
I lost it ......... If Nissan wanted it done that way they would have written it down in the owner's manual.
I made him put it in and I started up and used the servo to pump its ascot out.

if it ended there I would be grateful. No serious guys ......
He wanted sand paper to clean the piston. It really was muck and I took my fingernails and started to clean.
He was pissed at me for his stupidity.

Better me than you all, as I am trained in auto mechanics, just not practising.
His boss wanted to hire me though.
Could spot their BS as soon as the though enters their cortex.
