And some not even by your own doing. Projects like that are never going to be top's on a shops list because they aren't money makers. They are in the sense that they're rolling advertisements, but the amount of time that fabrication takes and the amount that actually gets billed are two totally different numbers.

At Speed1 we would rather do engine jobs and dyno's all fucking day than the big project cars for the money, but the reality is if you can pull two blown REW's before lunch and bill 18.4 hours for it, you're gonna make a shit ton of money. But when you spend two days building an exhaust system, you're not actually going to bill 18 hours for it. Even if you do, you're still paying someone 18 hours and billing 18 hours, where if you can R&R an engine in a day, you'll pay someone 9 hours and bill 18.... so shops generally let the big projects sit until shit gets slow.....

Just my experience
