Andre Awad used to have that place near Kirkwood and Carling. I watched him restore the hood of a Ferrari and was impressed. Anyone know if he's in business again? Is "Unique Auto" him?

It's not horrible by any means, but it could be a lot better. If you have the machines and experience then I would certainly consider it.

I just checked my trunk and my rotary and compounds are all in Guelph, so I think I'd be impossible before the summer.
