Good Mechanics


Lambert Liebel
 

Hello Everyone,

I continue to get questions about good MG mechanics and shops throughout our area. If you could take a minute and send me your recommendations on mechanics with location I would appreciate it. I am going to take all that is sent to me and make a list so when I get the question, I can just send out the document.

Thanks for your help.

Steve Pilla 267-767-8150. Steve is a mechanic and MG owner. He “ works on MGs to fix them and get them out of my shop. I’m not a restoration shop. I’ll fix your car as soon as possible so that I can make money on other cars” he is a great mechanic and he is honest.... brutally honest.

I'll second Ed Sweeny at Proper Noise. He's doing the restoration on the Turner and his work so far has been beyond the quality and accuracy I expected.  He's not cheap, but he's excellent.

Cheers,
Kevin

Thank you Ryan for the referral!

Unfortunately the timing adjustment did not end up fixing my problem(s). I tried unsuccessfully to get my B running properly and must now turn it over to more qualified hands. So off she went on a flat bed to Steve Pilla @ Steve's Complete Car Care,  1442 County Line Road, Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006.

Blessings,
