 I'm a complete one eighty from that guy.

 

Hi Deivis, I'll sneak in here while PP and Dale are not looking...

 

One eighty is a reference to (angle) degrees, as in facing the other way, going in the opposite direction.  Often used in all kind of contexts that mean a full turn around even to indicate a religious conversion.  Here is meant something like that in all aspects that are important in the context I'm total opposite to the other guy:  fat, thin; black, white; tall, short; rich, poor; married, single; etc.  The details come from the context.

 

Be well.
