    Me personally,I have always got on with the owner of valley gas for thirty years plus,very helpful,professional and polite,dealt with him in work and outside work,he has been into hot rodding ,drag racing and other motorsports more years than me and as said on here before he must be doing something right!they are a great bunch of lads and lasses that work there too.seems every magazine I read has some vehicle featured that has been built there or had work done by them.there is always going to be some negative comments about something,it happens in all trades and businesses.also as wayne and jimmy have commented there are big differences in prices,things like workmanship,finish,overheads,quality of parts used,staff,time of build and plenty more you have to take into account.
    Is the mark one in the previous comment a certain red one?

Ps, You should talk to the man that would be working on your car not the man that pays the man that works on your car.
    Thats why its prob best to shop around and get a few quotes.big variation on shop rates,and could easily double a restoration bill,for the same standard of work.

    17k. I need to up my rate by about a 1000%
