  1. Car_Autoreports: Thanks for the reply. I remain interested in additional constructive feedback. Also, an alternative idea suggested by a friend is to specialize in diesel truck service, as a specialty, catering to commercial customers. Thoughts or feedback on this idea?

To put this in perspective, I would be a new owner without prior repair shop experience, however, I understand repair work and have done almost all of my own work on my personal vehicles for nearly 30 years. The scope of work I have personally performed included transmissions swaps, suspension, brakes, ignition systems, fuel systems, computer diagnostics and so on.
