When You Can't Do It Yourself

No matter how skilled you are or how well equipped your shop might be, there are times when you are going to need a specialist to complete work on your MG. One of the things which came out of our Tuning Seminar with John Twist was some suggestions for good resources for some of this work. Understand that these are not the only good places performing these specialties, but these are places where John Twist and others have found good specialty help. Many of you will have other good specialists to recommend, but those doing this kind of work are becoming fewer and harder to find as our cars grow older and some of the skills required are being lost as the generations pass.

During the course of the seminar, John Twist gave these recommendations for such services.
