Hello People!!

Just got my truck here in Denver, was wondering, do any of you have a preferred mechanic that does great work on your rig? I have a ton of warranty but for the hush hush aftermarket items.?

Hello People!!

Hey, welcome aboard, from the Two Easters Ranch near Berthoud.

I hire out all the knuckle-bustin I can't do myself to a small shop in Longmont, which is prolly further than you want to go. Let me know, anyway.

Nice rig! (I need to create a gallery...If we can ever get all the vehicles washed at once!)

Hey Bill
Yeah it's getting to be that "season" out here. Wash your car/truck in the morning and it rains or spits rain every afternoon, just enough to spot it up. Grrrr. I have a buddy who is from loveland that has a cool spot to get mufflers done. Yeah Longmont isn't too far, I went to school up at CSU. I don't know if I'll be doing to much work that would require knuckle bustin. Air intake, "maybe" a chip. Not sure how a V10 would sound with twin pipes. Might be too loud for business use. We'll see! Later Jason

Hello People!!

Hey Parrothead, you are in my backyard! I grew up in Longmont, and now I live near Greeley. What shop in Longmont are you referring to?

Hello People!!

Yo, Bigdeez-

The shop is called AEA Automotive, they're in central Lugnut, err, Longmont. The exact opposite of those waxed-floor dealer shops they're in the low rent part of town, but they've got a good attitude, fair prices and have done good work for me. The owner is a German car nut, Mercedes expert, his mechanics like working on big American iron. Their scheduler, Mike, is a Japanese car hot-rodder.
They don't mind doing custom type work, engine swaps, stuff like that if you don't mind an old-timey kind of shop.

One time when my ride was stuck there waiting for parts, the owner took 45 minutes out of his day to drive me to where I work in a Mercedes military 4x4 (pretty cool ride $$) Then they picked me up the next day. Unbelieveable.

Later-
