and at my bill rate to customers...well...let's just say you wouldn't want to pay me to install parts on your car!!! lol

I'm glad the family reached out and helped... Thats one of the things I Love about Camaro5. Thanks for stepping up..

And I only threw the billing deal out there since working in the oilfield, my rig is making about 280,000 per day, and when we go on subsea downtime, it figures out to over 10,000 dollars an hour... I hate those reports... and the phone calls, and the e-mails, and the visits from office dudes and dudettes, and visits to the blue room... etc... I just wish I was making that hourly rate... I'ld have................... something..

it is all about approach angles. Of course it is my business but I lower every thing and drive every where. If you don't rub some time you need to go lower.

We did some work with GSF/TO and it was recited to me how much 'down time' would cost each rig...they don't mess around when it comes to knowing exactly how much they're making an hour...and it's nuts.

And I'm looking forward to hearing about how the alignment went...and my first test ride post mods. However, I feel that ride may wind up inflicting substantial pain on my wallet.

:laugh: Can't wait for those stories. lol

He'll learn it, but his driveway, though not too bad, can be a pain. If he goes much lower than me, he'll have to be REALLY careful.

When I first came offshore I worked as a medic on a GSF project.. Then for a while I ended up working on a TO project...

Now I work for Diamond Offshore, no longer a service hand, and yes, it's universal that everybody from the newest galley hand to the Co-Reps know almost to the dollar the day rate for a rig, and how much of a percentage you loose if the soft ice cream maker goes out etc... It kills me that we have some equipment that we never ever use, but heaven help us if it gets on a report that it doesn't work, and the Co-Reps find out.... Oh Lord...
