Hes not . If he opens his mouth and something comes out its a lie. I have been trying to get a frame from him for over a year and 3 months. He has more excuses than carter has pills. The city needs to take his license. He takes on work he cant do in a timely fashion. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS MAN.

There is not a bigger P.O.S in Springfield. He may get some work accomplished if he would get off the crack and run off the maggots, ie Monte. He's owes me money I got tired of asking for it. If he can live with himself, I'll eat the loss.

There's no place on this forum for a bunch of men acting like children. I have known Will for years. He does top quality work. He is an excellent welder, fabricator and machinist but sadly a poor business person. The sad truth is that he does take on large jobs that seem to never get finished.
Will has to many friends hanging around, waisting his time. He will take carry in jobs for the fast cash,while large buck jobs go unfinished, sometimes for years. He has lost his main shop for non payment of rent,while all the local business have him on a cash only basis. As of late most of his money goes to lawyers for his federal case. Will is in failing health and has trouble even walking. It's sad, but years ago, with a good business manager Will could have been another Boyd Cottington. Honest, I no longer judge !!!!!!!

xjudge~ You couldn't be more correct about Bill. He is excellent at what he does and has done for years but a business man he is not I'm sad to say. If you want a 'custom' piece, he's the man to go to and he knows his stuff. All those that he 'trained' such as Lobeck went on and forgot just where they learned what they knew about hotrods. People need to learn not to throw out accusations without knowing all the facts about someone.

First off the question was how honest is Bill ? Next I paid up front plus shipping. I am going off facts. Not speaking from something I sit on. I have been a nuclear welder /fitter. I work for the Air Force developing weapon systems so Im going to take it I have a LOT MORE ENGINEERING expertise than you. His work is sub par. And I seen high school kids weld better than him. BACK TO THE QUESTION HOW HONEST IS BILL. He has 4 court cases that did not go his way which he has yet to pay. SO YOU TELL ME HOW HONEST IS BILL.

How honest is Bill Metz? Are you kidding? Based on my experience, he's not honest at all. He promised me a frame in 6 weeks, I paid half up front and a year and a half later I took legal action on his lying a** to get my money back. Within a week, I got a call that my frame was ready so I went to get it. Some of it was acceptable, but there was a lot of shoddy work that I had to fix. Overall, the transaction sucked and I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. I hope he ends up where he belongs behind bars.

Bill has multiple negative threads started about him on almost every hot rod forum I belong to. He used to be a good builder. However, the general consensus is that he is not honest at all. His quality has went way down hill and he rarely delivers on time. There are many people waiting years to get their items completed when they were promised weeks. I don't care what you order you should never have to wait over a year for anything. Shop around there are many reputable builders all over the country that can do what ever you need in a timely agreed upon manner.

Bill if you are reading this you need to get get someone to run the shop so you can focus on what you are good at, building. Remember good reputations are not built in a day but bad ones can be.
