Default Great write up

Well done for calling him out, there are too many dickheads like him in the industry getting away with it for years.

Quite unbelievable. You are certainly better off out of there and they will be the poorer for it
I am firm believer that quality work speaks for itself and a company that has to self-promote to that extent and make things glossy for the sake of appearances, i.e. hoodwinking its customers can finance do one for all I care.

You have my respect for what you have done and how you went about it, your own moral standards and work practices are far more important than any job.

Good luck to you in your own ventures - I'm sure many here will wish you the same.

Geoff.

Yes indeed; create something in your own vision, maybe the UK's answer to Custom Craft Auto?

Goodness knows we could use someone capable & dedicated to the Ingolstadt classics.

Thank you all gents, your opinions and suggestions are all very much appreciated indeed!

@ Colin: It has to be said that on one or two occasions he came so very close to receiving some tlc, only I know for a fact hes the kind of nob who wouldnt let it lie there, hed have to call in the plods because he has no spine and loves to play the victim card while sniggering up his sleeve so its just a well I didnt lose control and splatter him up the wall.

On a positive note im going to rebuild the flow bench from scratch as I sold the electronics from the old one, in order to do some in depth flow test work on the heads for these old etypes, and ive also got a few other ideas for them which would improve them no end, its a testament to the "little" mans lack of vision and all round brilliance at being crap that after 20 years of bodging he still has no ideas of his own.

Im also going to start back up working on engine builds and heads ( had no time before) and theres already a few jobs to do, and since the build of a rather fine "shed" should allow me some better space to rebuild them, (bigger and cleaner than their engine room btw ) things might work out after all.
I do feel saddened at leaving behind the guys who I got to know and respect though not forgetting Derek, the works cat who followed me around like a shadow and asking for milk, and Mike, theres no doubt itll probably play heavily for a while but that cant be helped now, swimming against the current isnt worth the effort.

Call me crazy, but I firmly believe that sometimes fate has a strange way of trying to point us in a particular direction....
