Topic: Atlanta area team help a non-mechanic? Or know a shop?
I posted in the matchmaking section to see if I can find a mechanic/driver who can help me in exchange for seat time. Figured I'll post here in case I don't find a driver.
Summary is that I've been with 3 Pedal Mafia for 11 seasons. We are based in PA/NJ, I'm in Atlanta, so I'm an arrive and drive. My 18 year old son and my wife are very eager to try Lemons. Figured I'd get a car here and run RA or Barber for them. Found a recently run Lemons/Lucky Dog AW11 MR2 for the perfect price. The catch? Engine has a cracked crank. The bigger catch? My nickname on 3PM is "The Dishwashing Fairy"...for a reason. I can do oil and brakes, not a ton else. Also only have basic tools.
Anyone in Atlanta area have...uh...free time and want to help with an engine swap or crank replacement? I'll pay for parts and labor of course. Or, do you know a shop who could help? I've got a local shop I trust. They could do it, but are swamped and not sure they want to work on a race car while customers need their street cars fixed.
If this doesn't pan out, I'll move the car along to a team more equipped than I, and try to find my wife and son seats somewhere. Figured it's worth a shot.
Jack of all trades (???) Lemons staff
