I quit trying to get into the heads of previous wrenches 10 years ago.
I've no doubt that Sean and I could post once per day each on the "head scratching" stuff we've found over the years and not run out of material for a long time.
Last century when I didn't know that my 'retirement job' was going to be restoring 928s, when my actual job was running a startup/growing software business, but people were still dragging 928s to me on flat beds from other shops, I spent time trying to figure out "why did the last guy to this? What did he know that I don't? What was going though his mind when he did this?"
After 10 years, I decided that there was no point do that. I came to the conclusion that, outside of road-side emergency repairs, not doing it 'like the factory' better have damn good reasons that weren't hard to figure out, either through logic and engineering knowledge, or by making a call to folks like Earl, Stan, Greg, etc. Furthermore, I simply came to the conclusion that a majority of folks that wrench on cars for a living simply don't GAF and their primary purpose is to get the car out and assume that they will never, ever see it again.
I should probably amend my signature to lazy > NGAF > stupid > malace.
