All you need to know is Dales, and Rocket.
If they can't do it, you don't need it done.



really though, that's not a bad idea.
I can steal the dyno listing I made for Revscene, that might be a good start.

PDM is also a good local shop for alignments. Plus they carry whiteline stuff for subies, ALK, Sways and the like.

I suppose I should contribute:
Buying tires (locally): Tiretrends.com
Mounting/balancing: OK Tire on Marine (where bender works)
Racks: Rack Attack (dasnowman and Zefy work there)
Misc parts: I've had good experience with Garage Five

Could also maybe start a list of where VIC'ers work that might be helpful. We have:
- Rocket Rally (tora and patr)
- Lordco near Main & 1st (Azn-JapSTI)
- Specialty Subaru (sixthgear)
- Rack Attack (dasnowman and Zefy)
- OK Tire (bender)
Who am I forgetting?

that's a good call on supporting the members banman.

Just off the top of my head, there's also Jason T from Dale's, along with Explicit Hunni from Richmond Subaru. Also, member "sixthgear" is Geremy (or is it Jeremy?) from Specialty.

Also, for great webhosting, pm "lostmind".
He's been a great asset to my business providing great service at a fair price.

I know an unbelievable upholsterer on the North Shore if anyone is interested. He can make your car interior into whatever you want. He did some amazing leather work for us.

I don't know if this is the place to put it, so let me know if anyone is interested and I can put down more info.
