What the **** kind of mechanic is that? You shouldn't have punched him, shoulda called the cops as he was clearly trying to rip you off and steal from you. But punching him probably felt better.

Wow ash, you may have been in the right really but the law is not on your side my friend. If they get all of those ticket incidents looked at in court you could be labeled. Get to the court house and file an assault charge on him before he does you. This way you where there first hopefully reporting the incident. It will look more favorable to the guy whom files first, then get a restraining order against him detailing the incidents.

Claim self defense.


He might try to slap a mechanic's lein on your truck for the money he says you owe him.

+1 Yeah buddy file first. Self defense -he pushed you violently into a corner and punching him was your only way out.

No over reaction there... I don't know how you held back from stomping on him a few times.

File fraud charges too... at least conspiracy to commit fraud...

You need a third un-related party to kick the shit out of the guy (wish I was closer :laugh) I'm not one for violence but from what you stated above he is a shitbag.

I wouldn't have punched him, but I wouldn't have had him working on my stuff in the first place. Take it as a sign to start doing you own repairs:thumbup Other than myself there's only one shop I trust in NoVA - they are awsome but a bit pricy.

Ash get the Fu*k off the internet and file charges before he does!! Claim self defense and get witnesses!!! He assaulted u first!!other than that..super chargers normally have a whine to them due to them being belt driven..what kinda blower is it..the only way u can undo them is to put another belt on that is the proper length and remove the adaptor pullie off the motor.and truck should run like shit with out it cause the super charger should cover the intake either driectly over the intake manifold or off to the side with a long intake pipe running to it.all in all a bad move send me a pm if u need anymore help!!

You did right in my book. :thumbup

The very second after some asshole puts their hands on me he will be met with me trying to cave his face in.:yes
It's called self defense and is your right by law to defend yourself.
Would be hard to stop with just one volley though.

And yes, go file charges NOW if you haven't already.

I probably would have punched him too for putting his hands on me. Self-defense right? I know the bigger person would have probably done something else, but I ain't that civilized yet. :rant If you have witnesses, they can collaborate that he assaulted you first.

By the way, since when does it cost $1,800 to disconnect a supercharger?:confused

Also take a picure of what he did to your SUV and get whoever that fixes it (best if its a licensed shop) to write a statement on how the super charger was disconnected etc etc so it matchs ur story!!
