    What if you just hit him up and say something like "Hey man, I have some planned events with the car in 2 months. I need to have it completed by X date. If you can't hit that date can you tell me so I can bring it somewhere else?"

    So I tried that during g the 1st year when ocmd cruise came... even have the texts where he told me we would have it done with enough time to work the bugs out... well that event came and he went... I missed it.

    Then ocmd fall was coming up... keep in mind this is the 2nd part of the 1st year and same talk. Have it done to work the bugs out... again... he went... I missed it.

    January came and the 1 year anniversary of the car being there came and went... and I again had to start biting my lip...

    My son was born... in the hospital and I wanted to bring him home after 2 months in the nicu in my hot rod, and when that time came and my car was sitting in the storage trailer out of site out of mind, I felt my anger grow...

    I know me... I know that anger will come out in the worst way. It will come out with any emotion at this point whether it be that IM HURT or IM UPSET or IM DISSAPOINTED... etc... And thats when I realized if I want to respect the friendship (even though he is not) and the legacy of my close friend that passed I just can't open mouth.

    I made the conscious decision to just wash my hands of it. I would just move on and hopefully some day it would be done and ready to come home. I also made the decision that day would be the day that I will RESPECTFULLY cut ties without saying a word.

    Yes I am upset and will be even more upset when that day comes because of the friendship lost... but I'd rather walk away that way, even if it means inconveniencing myself.

    So to move on... I bought a bucket list car. A carbd hot rod that my old ass can work on mostly on my own (lil CARBURETORS FOR DUMMIES).

    IDK if I can verbalize the why to which is the reason I can't just be that asshole or take my stuff and go... but its bigger than the car and more about the feeling of betrayal and disrespect for a person who I did EVERYTHING for.

    Ain't really my business but you are discussing it on the forum. Are you paying him to do this? If so, I'd light a fire under his ass. If he's doing it free for you as friend, I'd just go get it out of jail and take it elsewhere. His time limit has expired.

    I'm absolutely paying for it... in fact I never ask for favors and when we started, offered to pay shop time to book him and the bay so that it could be focused on... even took days off to work on it... just to watch other things get worked on, om most of those days.

    I smell something wrong here. I've got a scent of him wanting your Impala. He may be thinking that if he stalls you long enough you'll grow tired of the project and move on to something else. Then he'll say, well you owe me this much and I'll give you this much more and keep the car.????
