At what year mark do you start viewing someone as a veteran in the parts profession? I'm 24 and have been counterpro for eight years and still sometimes struggle to get the respect of "Old School" parts people even though I am proficient at what I do.



There's really no quick way to get respect. It takes time. It's partly a matter of putting in your time and of perception on the part of others. If you're perceived as the go-to guy for answers, before long, the age factor doesn't matter anymore.
