Hand them a sander and see if they are really as good as they say they are.

or tell them that you are busy and dont' have time to talk.

,but some of the funniest things I've ever seen happen around the shop after the work is done. Problem for me seems like I never really gets finished. Seems like I'm always in a hurry to get something done.

I always had my buddy over to help me on my car(mostly hang out and dring beer), one day he brought over a friend, I did not think anything of it. I was going on my honeymoon the next week. When I got back ALL of my tools were gone, 3 carbs, 2 sets of headers, 2 intakes, a ton of ARP, a new in the box CV Belt drive. To this day niether one of us had heard from him.

I wish theives were shot instead of getting probabtion / jail time. Maybe if we could just cut their arms off I'd feel better! Sorry guys, it just makes me so mad when I think about someone stealing from someone. We pay our hard earned money for expensive parts and some scum bag steals and sell for pennys!!

I keep my gate closed and don't tell anybody what I'm doing or going.

It's difficult to NOT let the neighbors know you have a race car....The trailer , starting it occasionally etc....but YOU shouldn't have to keep things secret. Scumbags should leave your things alone. What little I have accumulated I have worked hard for, often selling things I wished I could have kept just to be able to afford to have it.
