    Depends on what you need. What kind of wallet thickness do you have?:tumbleweed:

    But I can do some custom work here. It depends on what you are looking for.

    I can't say enough good things about the work, and customer service that Bill provides. The first time i had work done at Bills shop, I was absolutely impressed how much he knows about vehicles. To top it all off, his prices made everyone else's prices look like a ripoff.

    If you're looking for great work, and great customer service at a great price; Bill is the man you need to speak with.

    My first trip to Bills shop, he installed a new clutch for me. He showed me every step as he did it. I had no idea about the adjustment tools that are required to get it perfect. I was very impressed with his work and knew right there, that any future work would go straight to him.

    This is the only pic i took with my phone. The rest i took with Bills phone because he was wanting to do a How To thread for second gen clutch.

    My second trip to Bill was for the installation of my 4:88 gears and Detroit Truetrac LSD. Once again, i saw the skill of this man. You can tell that he knows what he's doing. Again, he gave me a great deal.

    For me, I'm a sub-Contractor so my hours are pretty unpredictable. To get this done, Bill went out of his way to do it when it wasn't exactly convenient for him. This is the type of customer service that i can't get enough of. And just another reason that i will continue to take all my vehicles to Bill at Marion Bumper2Bumper.

    Here's a couple pics of the gear install. I won't post them all so not to flood his thread more then i already have.

    The new gears/LSD

    And last but not least. Bill wiping my ass for me. Seriously, how many mechanics will wipe your ass for you?

    THAT'S CUSTOMER SERVICE!

    Awesome thread, Bill! I hope this thread gets you your much deserved business!

    Here, he has the intake off of my motor to get the knock sensor replaced. It goes into the shiny shaft in the middle of the block.

    He was EXTREMELY careful not to mess with the timing belt by zip tying it on both sides.

    Well I just want to put some life in my little thread here.....Haven't heard from any of my buddies yet.

    The Stoney Lonesome trip was awesome! Had a little bit of carnage, but nothing that was major fortunately. We went through several different trails, including a few of the Extreme trails. FlawedXJ did a great job in helping to lead the trails! Thanks man!
