Default Preferred Mechanics of Rising Sun members

I apologize if this thread exists somewhere already, but I was wondering if there was a list of preferred mechanics used by RS members?

If the list doesn't exist, who do you all recommend? FWIW, I have a FJ62 and a 100 series so I'm interested in people trusted to work on both/either.

Yep, Robbie, or Slee, Redline, or ATLR, all are members or supporters of the club and generally trusted with member rigs.

Also, if you are on the west side, Joe Calleja at CTS in Conifer does great work.

what part of town are you on? The 100 series could go to Toy Car Care off of Potomic and Arapahoe Rd. The owner is a master mechanic and also has a 40, but the tend to newer Toyota and Lexus models

They are not the cheapest place around but a good reliable shop. Great pedigree on the mechanics you can see from their web page. I have been going there for about 10 years for anything not related to offroad accessories for mine, my daughters and my wife's rigs

It's close enough I can walk home fairly quickly when doping off which is another plus. Sarah's 100 is over there right now to fix a brake issue.

I'm surprised that they don't do drug testing at your place of employment Ken.

I use Robbie or Slee, but I have also used Charlie's Garage in Boulder. They have some cruiser heads in there and the shop does great work, with good prices as well. They have always been able to get me in without much wait.

However, Robbie and Slee are both worth the wait, if you can!
