    anyone know of someone/shop that fits this bill in the Carlsbad, San Marcos, Vista, Escondido area of North County San Diego? Want someone to take my rig to to get a once over and tell me what it is needing (that is out of my ability level).

    I have not come across anyone people have recommended. I do my own stuff, so I dont look at all, but of all the folks I have met, no one they have used impressed me.

    I wish I could do it all, but there are just certain things an untrained, new eye cannot do nor has tools for. plus, I just really want a good once over.

    maybe someone will come through.

    Art Banks is honest and competent. He's the mechanic of choice that I let work on my rig. Speaking from experience, he has excellent knowledge and has a straight shooter approach. Not sure what his schedule is like these days, but send wasabi a PM directly. Good Luck!

    What's a shoop?

    Like the Salt N' Peppa song?
