I'm from the far northwest side, near Edgebrook. The very first thing I need to do to it is get some new headers. The ones on there right now (don't even know what kind) are cracked, but I knew that buying it.

Lol... Edgebrook is literally at the edge of the city limits. The center of Edgebrook is Devon and Caldwell. I'm closer to Touhy and Caldwell.

Waiting on a case of Comp cam break-in oil, edelbrock intake gasket, manifold bolts today. Once those are in the work begins.
Also on the way, 4 new Skyjacker Nitro Softride shocks and a crt performance TFI kit.
Can't wait to have all this done so I can then start my carpet removal/monstaliner application and remove old and install new custom headliner...

My regular mechanic. Called him up and he said they were a bit slow. He said 2-3 days tops and he said he would do it all for $500. However, I didn't mention the shock because that's something I can def tackle myself. He is a long time family friend and has been the family mechanic for about 30 years.

Also, the tfi kit I'll also do myself because it won't be in until friday or sat. Headliner will also be done by me. Thinking either actual wood paneling or a country plaid pattern for that.

Mechanic said it will be ready Tuesday... no rush. I'd rather wait an extra day or 2 and know it was done right..

Was the deal you got because you are a friend of the family? It seems like you had way more work than 500 in labor.

I'm looking for someone to do some stuff for me, nothing compared to you, but if he's good, I'd be interested in using your guy. Where's he located?

I don't know if its because he is a family friend or if its because I take my cars to him for everything. He is a great mechanic though.
He is at Kedzie and 23rd. Corral auto and his name is Fidel.

Burtman you're right by my house I think. Is that by 18th and clark? I'm a few streets down from there if so. The tall grass is fun to run over too. Let me know when you hit it up again.
