Thanks Nelson, good point that I should list my neighborhood. I'm in Valley Glen, which is next to Sherman Oaks, but I'm willing to travel and drop my car off.
I have a great Lexus mechanic, but I'm looking for a CL member who wants to perform DIY fixes from these forums for a lucrative hourly rate. For example, my door actuators would cost $1600 to purchase and install if I went to my mechanic, even more expensive from the dealer, But for $20 in parts the actuator motors for all four doors can be replaced manually, I already bought the parts based on the CL forum posts for my 2GS. Similar story for fixing my AC servo motor.
Hoping somebody in the LA area is interested!
