Woo hoo someone relatively local. Do you do alignments, Marc? I have a Datsun 1600 with coilovers front and rear, adjustable rear x-member, and front camber tops. I'm looking for someone who can work with old and low cars and give me advice on how to best set the car up, not just align it how they want and then give it back (which is what usually happens).
^ God I fucking hate that. Went to Balwyn Tyres years ago with my 1300, told the guy what I wanted etc, he goes "mate, I've got a $50,000 machine that tells me how to set it up". I turned and walked out. Went to Donellans in Box Hill with another car, got the alignment sheet afterwards, about the only thing the aligned properly was toe, camber and castor were way way out. Wtf? I reckon I've been to about 9 different tyre places around Melbourne, only 2 I would ever go back to. They're all dumb fucking failed mechanics.
