Auto body repair Salt Lake City is different than auto body repair in any other city in the United States of America or any other country for that matter. This has nothing to do with the Mormon Temple or the strange and restrictive alcohol consumption regulations. One might argue that auto body repair is uniquely different in any one location relative to any other location simply by virtue of the fact that no other location can share the same location with another location. There is probably some Euclidean property that defines this property. At any rate such a proposition is self evident.
WHAT MAKES AUTO BODY REPAIR SALT LAKE CITY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER CITIES?
Perhaps it has something to due with the salty quality of the air that blows off from the Great Salt Lake. Although, I once visited Salt Lake City many years ago and according to my recollection the lake is actually some distance away from the city. I could be wrong about that because it has been many years, I am using my recollection as a source and I refuse to actually look up this fact to confirm its veracity. Feel free to look it up yourself if you have read this far and are curious as to the answer to this question.
Perhaps it has something to do with the people who inhabit Salt Lake City. The capital of Utah is a frontier city at its heart. It was settled by people who wanted to get away from the East Coast aristocracy. This sensibility has been passed down through the generations and is most likely reflected in the auto body repair shops scattered throughout the city. I guess this is the difference that I have been trying to articulate since the first paragraph of this blog post.
Many of the people living in Washington, D. C. are learning about the many benefits of stashing a drum heater in the trunk of their car. People are interested in doing this because transporting chemicals within industrial drums sitting in the trunks of their cars is not as infrequent an event as you might think in our nation’s capital. This is true because times are tough and one of the best ways to earn some extra cash on the side is in the transportation of chemicals from one end of town to the other. In fact there is an Uber type app designed just for this purpose!
EARNING EXTRA CASH WITH A TRUNK DRUM HEATER
Now getting the job transporting chemicals from one end of Washington, D. C. to the other is actually the easy part. The more difficult aspect of this job is in keeping the chemicals at their proper temperature. This is where the heater of the drum in the trunk comes into play. Many industrial chemicals need to be kept at a specific temperature in order to prevent their spoilage or loss of potency. This is why a heater is required in certain specific instances and specific chemicals.
Washington, D. C. is a city that experiences a wide range of temperatures throughout the year. Although sitting below the Mason Dixon line, Washington, D. C. can get very cold in the winter. By contrast, Washington, D. C. can also experience some of the most swelteringly, sickeningly hot summers you would ever not care to experience. It is for this reason that special care must be taken to make sure that the chemicals you are transporting in the trunk of your car be kept at an even temperature. You are in the business of earning extra cash and the people receiving the chemicals will not want to pay you that cash if the chemicals spoiled en route.
Let us put aside our fears and discuss frankly and honestly the elephant in the room regarding collision repair Salt Lake City and its potential impact on the D. C. Auto Geek readership. Now, we all know what I mean by the phrase elephant in the room. When I use this phrase I am talking about a subject that is painfully obvious to all and yet nobody wants to talk about it for some reason of embarrassment or social taboo. But no elephant can be swept under the rug for too long. The obvious lump is too big to ignore or avoid indefinitely.
GETTING TO THE HEART OF COLLISION REPAIR SALT LAKE CITY
Now that we have established the unavoidable position that the elephant in the room must be addressed, actually addressing it becomes our next and most daunting challenge. If there is one thing that I (Jerry the Auto Geek) have learned in my many years on this planet it is that honesty is the best policy. Now I know that this is a very worn out cliche. But there is truth to it and the truth of the matter is very simple indeed. That truth is, reality prefers the truth. Allow me to explain.
Reality deals in truth. Reality is only true. For this reason an untruth runs in contravention to reality and just like mother nature, reality always wins in the end. For this reason it is far better to be truthful (i. e., address the elephant in the room) than it can ever be to sweep it under the rug and hope nobody notices it. Although there is a temptation to do so because in the short term the carpet can to some degree cover the elephant. We all know the elephant is there but for a time we can pretend it is not.
There are signs and banners of good times to come in the city of Washington, D. C. The trees are beginning to bloom and harkening the more pleasant weather of springtime. We need to take advantage of this short window of good weather because before we know it the sweltering summer will be upon us. It is a cliche to say that Washington was built upon a swamp but it was (as far as I know). For some reason that makes it hotter here. Perhaps that is because the city is located on a low lying area and the humidity seems to sit here.
THE SIGNS AND BANNERS SAY JERRY THE GEEK IS BACK IN TOWN!
That is right my friend. Jerry the Geek is back in D. C. and he fixing to crash on your couch. This assumes that the reader of this blog post lives in D. C. and has a couch in their house or apartment. But that is a reasonable assumption to make because why would someone other than a person who lives in our nation’s capitol be reading a blog about automobiles in Washington, D. C.? The simple answer is that there is no reason. The more complex answer is that people who do live in Washington, D. C. probably are not reading this blog either.
None of that matters. I write my blog because I enjoy writing. I do not write my blog because I expect to gain a fan base doing it. Although if that happened I would not be opposed. My only point is that gathering an audience is not the primary reason for my writing this blog. It is not even in the top ten reasons for writing this blog. I am reasonably certain that it is in the top twenty reasons, however.
If one wants to know the true measure of a man, he need only reference the man’s body shop Salt Lake City of work to see this squarely for himself. This is true because in the man’s body of work is reflected the man himself and vice versa. The man’s true essence is revealed through his body of work because his body of work represents the sum total of the man’s creative efforts. These creative efforts come from inside the man’s mind and soul. Accordingly, this reflection of his mind and soul is the true measure of the man and not the man’s physical attributes.
TRUTH IS REVEALED IN THE HEART OF THE BODY SHOP SALT LAKE CITY
For this reason when a man takes his car to a body shop what he is really doing is taking his car to a person who will then reflect his true self into the car through the repairs that he makes. His repairs are in this way a portion of his body of work. As such, the customer can see the true measure of the mechanic in the way in which he has repaired the customer’s car. In this way the customer sees into the mechanic’s soul.
Now there is another layer to all this. The customer’s car is not just a product that he owns. No, his car is his means of transport and his means to acquire a livelihood. In this respect the customer’s car is very important to him or her. In a sense it is an extension of himself or herself. For this reason when the customer offers up his or her car to the mechanic in order that (yes it can be repaired but also) it becomes a portion of the mechanic’s body of work something profound is occurring.
