I bet he jsut saw it as something he could bang out in a day, and instead of having another car sitting around waiting to worked on he could just do it.
how much did all the work run?

No low temp thermostat and fan switch? Maybe you're one of the lucky ones that doesn't run high temps in the summer.
Everybody seems to report that their tensioners looked like crap when replaced (me included) but I haven't read anything about any breaking. How far can these things go.

I'm not worried about it. When I get the car back it's going to the paint shop for a custom paint job and body kit. My car is still not done, so it will sit there for an indefinate period of time
