    Iím going to start making it ASAP but probably will take 4-6 weeks to deliver on $1000 order for example.

    Iím working on 3 orders now at a time. So itís a little slow on delivery. But Iím here working everyday.
    Spoons would probably be the fastest. Like 100 for example.
    But please donít order more than $1000. I donít want to get too far behind.

    Yeah Iím stressed out like crazy. I am working on as much as possible now. No days off this week.
    I have a lot to pay for.
    Brought the car in for brakes and it needs that plus I forgot about inspection. To pass that I need wiper blades. Then there is a motor in the dash that blows the heat and ac. It needs to be replaced. Iím going to get a used one for $40 but the entire dash has to be taken apart to replace it. So itís $200 to fix air flow.
    Total is $455 to get on the road and $200 for heat. Plus tax. Itís like $90 hour labor at my place and genuine Saab parts.
    Car only has 96k miles on it with synthetic oil. So it should run over 200 k miles.

    Iím trying to borrow from my dad but he is on vacation for a month skiing out west with my mother. Plus I borrowed $400 and bought a lot of glass before he left in the beginning of the winter for Colorado to ski. So I owe him already.
    But he only asked for $50 month for the glass. Itís like all winter worth.
    I stocked up before they left.
    Iím kind of ducked though but not all bills have to be on time I guess. Just giving me shitty credit.
    To get to the point I donít want to borrow anymore.

    Seeing if I can pay the guy every week.
    I had a customer flake out last week who places $1000 orders. So I got problems. But Iím ok for now that Iím here everyday and working late.

    I can maybe get a friend to do the brakes for cheaper. I am going to not buy rotors and just put new pads on it.

    Note to self. Change pads the minute you hear them! Also, it’s actually a pretty simple swap that you could do yourself potentially if ya do a little research

    unfortunately I don't have even $120 for parts. But they take paypal at autozone. So if anyone want to order and help me out it would help.
    I have done it myself before and I guess I can try again?

    That's exactly what you're asking for. Maybe that behavior works at home, but it's not going to work here.
