Default What's your answer to when people ask "When's your car going to be done?"

Two weeks!


That works for a couple years at least, I've found.

When it gets done!!

These days I usually take what I consider to be a realistic estimate, double it, and then double it again. This seems to work out if I work with reasonable regularity.

The 66 was done in about a year, (except for a few loose ends)which is nearly a record for me...

I tell them Never. Everytime I fix something, I find at least 2 things I need to work on.
