Default Washington DC area Mechanic Needed

I need to replace the front and rear struts on my 95 SC400. I'm looking a mechanic who is reasonable and above all, knows his SC's and has done it before (HINT, HINT, Lexus dealer mechanics), if you are the mechanic or know of one, PLEASE!!!!! let me know. I've research the topic and will supply the struts since they are available from many online dealers. I WILL work around your schedule.

There are also a few other things I'd like and we can discuss in person to list them for my SC and GS.

Thanks....

Hans

Thanks for your help in advance. The location would be great for me since I'm a little south of that and it's a lot easier than the other side of DC.

I'll really look forward to hearing back from you.

Holy Crap! You weren't lying, you really do 'get around' the SC community.

Any update on the name of the shop?

Default Oh S#@$

Well, S#@$ Happens and I got to the web site and called the number and it's disconnected.

Thanks for the effort and if anyone come up with suggestions,

It's hard to believe how hard it is to find a good mechanic for a strut job.

Thanks again....

Default To Whom It May Concern: Wow

Called Dan today and what a pleasant experience. Not having ever met him, I felt extremely comfortable about giving him my car for any job I can think of. He offered what I believe was a resonable price for quality work.

I'll update this thread after the work is completed.

Thanks again for the help.
