Default Looking for a great Ford mechanic in the LA area!

My wife and I live in an apartment complex and its actually stipulated in our lease that we are not to "work on stuff" in the garage.

We both work quite a bit and while Id love to learn how to change the slave cylinder..... there are few small problems with the truck that need to be addressed and I simply dont have the time.

Does anyone know of an HONEST Ford guy in the LA area? I would be willing to drive a little to a better shop. I have motorcycle contacts all over the place that I have no issue driving to for better quality service and honesty....

thanks in advance guys!

What is wrong with your truck besides the slave?

Talk to diabloblanco on here, he should be able to fix it, or knows where to go.

The joys of garages...shut the door lol

I wish I had some contacts for you here, but I do not. I'd say talk to your motorcycle contacts, I bet they know some good people too.

It has a few small issues.... the slave being one. The rear end is leaking, the brakes need to be done. Again, all things that I could do on my own given time but I dont have the time or the place to do it.

When I work on my bikes, I have a friend in Pasadina that lets me use his driveway but this I think would be a bit much....

One of my biker friends actually knows a guy out in the valley that might be able to help
