Hi all,

I've just moved to Melbourne and need recommendations for any good 4wd mechanic. I'm located on the western side of Melbourne near Flemington Racecourse and was wondering if there was a good 4wd mechanic/workshop nearby that does general servicing?

Cheers,
Ray

I have a guy in Coburg that turns buses into 4wd's.
Have seen him work on 4bys alot there.
He is a pretty smart cookie. Old school though. Good man.

J & D Automotive. 17 Mercier St. Coburg Nth. 9354 9310

I always pay cash and dont require reciept. He does not ask for that but I assume it's appreciated.

He put a 1996 2.4 Hilux engine and a 5 speed box in the 1975 Coaster. I suppose the average mech cant/wont do that.

Check him out.

He's no mate of mine just a good mechanic.

Welcome to Victoria.The place to be. The garden state. On the move. I think that's all. lol

LOL, Geez iMusty...I hope ther are no tax office types on the board who are having a bad hair day! I'm sure your mechanic would prefer that his 'cash' business remained un-documented.

Oh yeah ! I never thought of that.

He always gives a reciept. My post before contained lots of typos. Sorry.

I meant to say he always gives a warranty which you require a reciept for. So dont offer to pay cash as it's not a good idea and he might be offended.

Hi Ray

Welcome to Melbourne - the worlds most livable city. This a beaut place to be though as everyone is finding out it is becoming a little crowded. We have this event called the Formula 1 Grand Prix - you should go as they have nothing like it in South Aus....

Geez I have to go through there on the way to the Kimberley.... they are great neighbors those South Aussies....

That has to be Andrew, Jen wouldn't say things like that.

Bloody Mexican!!!

For your information we turned the ex Formula 1 event into a really beaut racing weekend. Recognized by everyone (except for Victorians probably) as the best event on the V8 Supercar calendar.

Going to have my Valium now.........

That's nice.... : )

Maybe we can get that one day too.

The Albert Lake Protesters wont mind them either. Rather slower and quiter than the F1 machines.

It would also slow our booming population growth because not as many people would come to see them.

We would need to find a place to put the F1's though.

A place who would value them and do what's needed to be done in order to keep them.

A real organised State.

Nah... we'd just keep that too. Lol.

Have a real quiet day. SHhhhh....

close your eyes....

Only 11 more months till your BIG RACE! is on Lmao

Mate,

If I had my way, I'd be back home in a shot.

However, have you noticed that Farmers Union Iced Coffee is becoming more available in the rest of the country!!!

One good thing about moving back south, even though it's not SA is that at least I'm much closer to the source of FUIC.

Ray, if you get round Geelong way, try the Great Ocaen Road Iced Coffee or even better still is the Premium Chocolate. Local to Western Victoria and not overeas owned like a lot of the other. Good substitute to FUIC.
Cheers,
