How do people feel about a thread dedicated to recommendations for Georgia shops to perform work on our trucks? Being relatively new to the world of old trucks, one of my biggest problems has been finding reliable shops to do work at a fair price.
I've been fortunate to have a couple of successes in this regard, so why not share? If enough people post their good experiences, we can have a database of sorts of places to go.
First, exhaust work. I needed everything aft of my catalytic converter replaced, and was having a hard time finding someone to do the work. Then I ended up with these guys:
K & C Muffler
603 Carlisle Rd.
Dawsonville GA 30534
$165 installed, and they got me in and out quickly. Good work, too.
Now I am working on my A/C, and needed a new set of hoses made - I have dealer air, and wasn't able to find a retailer with the hoses that I need. My local NAPA turned me on to these guys:
I haven't needed any work done as I do my own at the house, slow goin at times but cheaper and that way I'll know what's what, but there is a muffler place in hawkinsville, ga that does muffler work and tires too and what I've heard there do a darn good job
200 Marlin Dr
Vidalia, GA 30410
Local: (912) 386-4621
A list of what they do:

auto customizing & performance enhancements
auto dealers-new cars
990 Telfair Street
Augusta, GA 30901
Perdue's Paint & Body Shop
1705 Georgia Highway 16 W
Awesome Idea. There are many (like myself) that are not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to wrenching. A thread listing good shops that provide excellent service could come in handy. I have used the following shop, and would say they are five star rated in my book.
4975 Friendship Rd
Buford, GA 30518
I had my rear end rebuilt in my e1999 F250 Super Duty 7.3L PSD at Turner Automotive in the Augusta Area. I guess I will revive this thread.
