I have been looking for a speed/mechanic/paint shop (not all in one) that I can trust. Shops that have worked on WRX's before and aren't gonna gouge me on the price. I'm going to be doing some work to it VERY soon and I'm looking for an all in one stop shop as far as mechanics goes. I live in Newark and work in Jersey City so all the shops I typically go to for advice, answers, and prices have coke dealers as owners who have the shop as a front for their contrabanding ways (you'd be surprised as to how many there are). As far as paint goes I don't mind as long as they're good and inexpensive, I can't stand the "prime, paint, and attach the front lip is going to be $1600" shops. They want big work like limo fleets, not me. I don't mind if they don't speak english I know spanish, I can hang, just good work friendly staff, that sort of thing.
If you guys have any open shop meets where I could go and get some help installing my own up and down pipe from guys who know what they are doing... that would rock. My boy in down neck nwk sold his WRX cause his wife is now pregnant again so no more meets with him & his boys are too illegal for me to trust on my own. Anyway if you guys have any advice ro any directions to point me in I'd appreciate it.
