Same problem here. I live in bum f*** Kentucky and everyone here loves Dodge, and Ford. No one here knows 80 series for s*** and I have to do it all myself if I want it done right.I've tried, in fact I've been trying for decades now finding a shop anywhere close to me that knows cruisers. I regretfully sold my first 80 simply because I couldn't find anyone experienced to work on her and I got tired of her going from one hack to the next. I decided to tackle a lot of things myself thinking screw it I'll get it done this time and did find a kid who knew 80's he did some work for me, but I don't weld....sounds like I'm back to the same problem.
