    ok so i allready posted this in mid-atlantic but i didnt realize new york is not included and since thats probably my best bet here it is again.

    Ok ive got an 88 fullsize blazer that i started to convert to a 4 speed but i dont hav ethe time to finish it, i wanted to see if any of you guys know of or work at a shop that i could bring it to. all it needs is to have th epedals put in and the linkage hooked up, and a fule line needs to be replaced. but if im going to bring it to a shop i might as well get the rust taken care of and some electrical things i havent had a chance to track down yet. anybody know someplace that does that kinnda work, i dont need, or even want a show truck but i do want it to be nice enuff that i dont have to be embaresed to drive it or have people wonder if it even works. the truck is in tobyhanna PA and would obviously have to be towed so thats the only limiting factor of where i bring it is how much it will cost me to get it there. I got ripped off bad on this thing and have allready spent way too much money on it so i cant be spending a crazy amount on it. that being said though i certanly dont mind paying for good work. thanks allot in advance.

    Chris

    It will take a full on custom shop to do that. A regular garage won't do that kind of work, not that you would be happy with it if they did.

    Have you had a chance to call the shop yet?

    Jon's in and out but 'always there' if you know what I mean.
    Leave a message if the machine answers and he'll call you right back.
