    Hello everyone,

    I am looking for a reputable hot rod shop near the downtown San Diego area. Does anyone have any info and contact information they would like to share?

    Thank you.

    Thanks Fuzzy. Maybe I should expand it to a 20 mile radius or so.
     
  4. What in particular are you looking to have done?

    There are a ton of shops around that area, some more specialized than others. Would help to know what you need so we can point you in the right direction.

    I'm posting for a friend who is looking to have some chassis work done on a Model A and a chop. Basically to help build a mild hot rod out of an A. Nothing fancy as it's going to be a driver.

    I'm also in Escondido. A friend of mine has a shop that many of us use for all of our fabrication. He can do most anything, and he is very reasonable. He is in San Marcos. Ask for Marty at Race Cars 'n Stuff, 760-591-9881. Tell him OMT sent you.

    This isn't exactly a reply but along the same line of questions and answers I have gotten myself in "over-my-head" while attempting to build a cobra kit. I need help with fuel, brake, steering, nearly everything. I've got all the parts and the side-oiler 427 engine and 4-speed top-loader tanny is mounted with the body fit. Does any one have a suggestion? My wife has already used the "you big dumby" line but I'm dedicated.
