Default Some tuning changes coming

Through the years people have come to us under the impression we are mostly a tuning shop.The fact is we are mostly a building type of shop and are pretty busy.

So this year we are changing the outside tuning part. At most tuning will be only 1 day a week for people looking to have there cars tuned.We have to do this because our regular jobs back up every year and I just go nut's trying to keep up with everything.

We will also be declining a lot of tuning jobs too. This is due to the quality of work we see on some cars coming in here.In the end it is our problem or our name on a badly running car due to the mechanics of the car.

So, thats about it.
Thanks
Don

If you guys have seen what we have, you would know exactly what we are talking about. Now the trend is 5.3 swaps. Some are good but most are hacked together.

Has to happen. I feel bad for the people that have to go to other shops around here but it's better for our shop.

There will be exceptions. Like the one day a week will be open, just selective now. Cars we tuned before will still be done. All cars we work on or sell parts to will be in, ect.

Many shops across the country already do this. It would be nice to have a good shop around here to push people towards though.
