    You might be looking for Alan (HARD40). I don't belive that there's a place out here that just works on Cruisers, The guys in the Club may be your best bet.

    The only shop I know of of anywhere close to here doing 40 restorations is Urban landcruisers in Atlanta georgia, get in touch with dd113 here on the board his name is david dearborn and he owns Urban landcruisers. He does good work, he rebuilt my engine for me and I have been very happy with it.

    JTOutfitters also do restoration work, they are located in NC, but I would not recommend them at all........ unless you are desperate

    Also there is IronPig Offroad in Virginia and they do restorations


    As Alex said we have several guys that have done great restorations on 40's and have a wealth of knowledge. We would be more than glad to give you a hand.

    one look at Alan's (hard40) cruisers and you will want to knock down his door with a hand full of cash. This is just my opinion.

    If your looking for any engine things such as rebuilding etc. contact Peter Merriam in Atlanta. I can post his number if you need it. He swapped out my Chevy and put in a 2F with a foreign 4spd tranny that has a very low first gear. Looks just like stock.
