I'm looking for a machine shop that does work on classic mini parts in or near New Jersey. I have to install new bearings, shaft, and stub axles on a pair of radius arms. I believe some special tools and a lot of accuiracy are needed. Know anyone who can doi this work?

Thanks

My Mini was done and is kept running by folks in Frenchtown NJ - Exoticars USA

Exoticars= big $$$. Was there a few years back. Flew in to NJ to work on a Ferrari and ended up at there place to switch out springs on the shockers. I did not know that they would work on a Mini? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/driving.gif

They work on most anything. Expensive? - perhaps but things get done only once and done to very high standards. Had my 1972 Jag and my 1964 Jag done by someone in Flemington years ago that cost me more. Plus it all had to be done again correctly. Should have spent the extra in the beginning and saved a ton in the end.

I must add that Exoticars is only 3 miles from where my cars are kept so it makes it really easy. Plus I can hang around the garage which is great fun. Have seen some super cars there.

Also had some work on the Mini done by someone else in NJ and Exoticars had to correct his mistakes.
