** SoCAL BMW Installer & Mechanic ** :)

MY PRICES ARE LOW SO PM ME
** WILLING TO BARTER FOR SR20, DATSUN 510, GO PRO's, NIKON, and other cool stuff **

About Me: Sup. The name is Cholea people just call me C for short. Been working on cars since I was 16 in and out of my dad's car shop. Now I have a very expensive hobby so I don't mind lending hands to other members who don't want to pay out the butt for work on there cars. I only use high quality tools, and I am very knowledgeable. You can ask me anything from engines, to wheel fitment, to even motorcycles. If you don't know me too well then you know I value my time so please don't waste my time. I respect every member as long as they treat me with the same respect.

Here's my car:


Services Offered: I am able to do suspensions, differential bushings, oil filter housing gasket (ofhg), valve cover gaskets (vcg), vanos, headers, front control arm bushings (fcab), rear trailing arm bushings (rtab), and pretty much everything lol. I've done M3 swaps, LS1 swaps, etc. This is just a hobby for me to support my modding, I don't do this as a career but my father owns a shop so I just go and freeload all his tools. (Sometimes his lift, but his lifts are usually busy which I don't want to take money away from my own dad)

** I am not mobile, you have to come to my shop or home in Long Beach!

Vouch for my work if you guys can

I also offer rim rebarreling services, and fender rolling rental.

SR20 Swap in my Datsun 510.


Repolished my BBS LMs


My R6


Here's steven and his poor excuse for a 330 working hard.


I managed to save most of Steven's busted axle.

Aww man had to make new thread

Here's a list of things he has done on my car can't guarantee he's down to do it on your car but just so you get an idea of his skills

Vanos rebuild
Headers
Shrick cams
Vcg
Ofhg
Intake
Exhaust drop and replacement
Rtab
Lcab up front
Sway bars
Shocks and springs
Coil overs
Diff rebuild and diff bushing
Flush any and all fluid
I'm sure a lot more things I can't think of at the moment

Yeah it's possible if the lip is not clearcoated or painted. Will look 100x better but not perfect. The metal gets grinded away and blended in.

My drift car is almost ready, going to be super epic. I'm down to trade some of my mechanical skills for Nikon equipment, RC Drift cars, SR20 parts, or other little cool goodies that I could use.
