Steve,

That doesn't sound like Frank (Beck). Is he still running that shop? I knew him years ago. Not to "dis" your post, I assure you. Just asking.

For future reference, and for all others reading this, the better shops will not ask for 100% of the money up front. They will, however, ask for anywhere from 25% to 60% down, the remainder payable on completion. This makes sure both parties (customer AND shop) have "skin in the game". The shop's incentive to finish the job is to get the balance. The customer's incentive to actually pick it up when it's done, is their "deposit" could be forfeit if they don't in a timely manner. This helps keep BOTH parties "honest".

FWIW

Jim

I don't know what to say... I would never have thought this of Frank. Let us know how the chips fall!
