Hello,
I need to do the following on my E36
Coolant Flush
Clean ICV
Re-attach heatshield,
fix passenger side lock. I live on Ogilvie, is there somewhere not too far that I can get the stuff done? Cause I'd have to wait around the area while its getting done.

Contact Raph at turboready.com.. his place is near heron / bank. Bring a lawn chair, watch him work or get your hands dirty and get done twice as fast.

Super thorough work. 613 521 3333 I think. He's on this board as Striker.

OR

Pretend you are the chick in your sig again and get Bear to do it. LOL!

Waghorn's is around the corner from you on Cyrville. I've heard good things about him and there's a guy I go to quite a bit on Blackwell-Beaver Auto.

Or you could bribe someone with a driveway...

went to see Raph, super-cool guy, a real enthusiast-not quite sure if he does business, but always good to hang around a good source of knowledge. Thanks Raph!

Very smart guy and if you pin him down, make an appointment and agree on a price, he'll do the work bang on. Sometimes a little hard to get him to 'make time for you' but I think that's because most ppl just use his time for free instead of paying. Personally, I think if he's doing work that a shop would do, he should be paid. :)

yeah, I went there expecting to pay, definitely not my style to try and weasel a free job out of anyone. I don't quite think he's motivated to make money off people, he's just an enthusiast.

Everlast(ing) :) thanks so much for the props, who is smarter than you though? You have more active brain cells than 1 Einstein X 100000000 to the 1000000000th power lol

Congrats on the new car, wow have to see that in person. I am not on the boards a lot, second kid was in and out of hospital for the last year and a half, had an operation lately is is now ready to race with me :)

With that worry, regular work and house projects I was out of the car scene for a while including my projects.

BTW as you know, I had to pull the plug on my forums, I had like a gazillion spam bots posting porn ads. Would not have cared too much if they gave me a commission, if they did I could have bought a new car like yours *th-up*

I have to get it online again, just have to get hold of the right security patches.

I did introduce you to the fire burning Jerk chicken, LOL man you had that without jumping into an ice bucket. You are a brave man Jay, I forgot about that.
