tell her the if you dont let me work on the engine in the garage, when you come home from work everything will be broken :lol: but serisouly, say if you want to watch me paint my block and valve covers feel free to do so, so you can see that i wont spill oil.

Try discussing some options first. I.e, you will clean anything up, put cardboard/towels down first, etc. Explain exactly what you want to do, and go from there. Tell them you'll paint everything outside, etc.

Don't get mad, rude, etc. All that will do is irritate your mom and boyfriend even more, and lower your chances of success.

There may be other issues that aren't even related to fixing the car (how well you're doing in school for example ) that are making them apprehensive. If there is, try working out a compromise.


If all else fails, just do it outside. Yes, it will suck, but better to get it done than wait...

If she told me that, I'd be like "bitch go back in the kitchen and make me a sandwhich!"

:wtflol: all jokes aside though, just do it in the street or something. Don't let ur parents stop u from working on ur car, just do what u can to get it done. I'm 16 and I usually work on my car where it's parked, wherever that just so happens to be.

bring it all onto the kitchen table and paint it all there. tell her u need a workplace and since u couldnt in the garage then the table was the next best thing :) or her bedroom, one or the other.
