    a good mechanic in Sydney that actually knows a bit about lightly modded (4age daily) AE86s?

    I'd prefer someone that does really top work as opposed to someone who will work cheaply. Up near Hornsby would be ideal, but I'm happy to travel a bit for a decent mechanic. Pulling my hair out with recommendations from friends or whatever and taking my car in only to have it not properly fixed, or repaired to some dodgy Holden-spec consumer parts crapfest. If you know what I mean...

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, at the moment my new LSD is making some pretty awful noises... I've recently had the rust cut out, welded, a re-spray, and some mechanicals done at the same time. One of those mechanicals was swapping the ADM drum for a disc rear end with (I was told) a Kaaz 2-way. Have had the car back for a week or so, and the diff is cactus. Shuddering on takeoff, whines like a bitch, and a crazy grinding noise during deceleration.

    So that's the immediate issue, but I'm also looking for someone I can use as a regular mechanic for the stuff that I don't have time, inclination or tools to do here. Basically anything more involved than oil changes and brake pads, etc.

    Also would like to get some engine stuff done - mostly fuel system stuff - and possibly get some advice on suspension. So pretty much everything, heh.
