"Hi Guys, come to my workshop and talk to the person who actually works on your car",..."I can tailor fit your requirements to any budget and style"

 Ferrari & Jaguar Owners

Why do Jaguar or Ferrari Owners engage me as their private dedicated mechanic for their cars? Its simple, the only person that works on your car is me, no apprentice, no uni-students, no novices.

I am also a passionate historic race car enthusiast (1960s-1970s F5000 & F1).

 I believe mechanics work should be to aviation standards, thus I double check my work, material, parts and provide quality assurance to each Customer with a full photo archieve, detailed quotes and detailed invoice.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD MECHANIC?

Its like asking who is a good surgeon. Forget flashy signs, glass smooth floors, spiffy customer lounges and glass screens, forget the labourers or floor staff, apprentices,... have a look at your Mechanics own workstation, if it looks prison cell clean is not a good sign,... or does it look used daily, grinders, welders, strange tools, and assortment of nuts/bolts/bits,... this a sign that a mechanic lives here. Can you talk to him, ask questions, is he knowledgable or talks jargon, is he educational to you,... does he have time for You,... does he pay attention or 'fluffs' you off, do you get reports, & photos.

Some of the best specialist mechanics operate from small garages, bit like a surgeon, whose operationg room is just a 4 x 4 metre and workbench is a 6 foot trolley,... its all about the person not the flashy factory.

Hi, I've been following your Club Race cars project, mainly how you rebuild a Jag V12 into a 3.5 litre race engine and what transaxle you use behind the V12 :-
