i really dont know any mechanics up here to take it to. I pretty much do all my own work. when i needed trans work done on my work truck about 10 years ago, there was a shop off silver lake road that everyone suggested. Seemed to do ok, and he was into performance cars too. Not sure if they are still around?
Other than a headliner installed in one of my vw's thats the only work I've had done by anyone.
