    do people ask you to build cars for them, that would be a great business for you, im in massachusetts too, you should come see if you can get my neighbors to let go of a benz they have rotting away in the driveway, tried buying it to rebuild it but they wont sell it, i would love to see you rebuild it back to its old skool beauty...

    dam rich , i thought you new more about power. . . .lol your connecting a 32 amp hour battery pack which is designed to act as high surge super capcitior to and likely 70 amp hour battery, and if the car is draining that battery so likley you only barely increased the run time and once its dead you both killed your jump starter and your car and will be shit out of luck. . hahahaha

    Wow! You really have to ask? It might be really entertaining to see a video of you trying to tell her, "NO!" HA! 1./ She's beautiful, she's already close to you; 2./ Face it, you are toast about to be thoroughly roasted by any red-blooded American male that watches said video; 3./ along with any other aspiring females that might happen to see it. Good luck getting another female apprentice or assistant in your shop; 4./ much less get laid without having to PAY for it. ;-)
