I used Midway for YEARS but for the last 3 or 4 years I have gone to Gilroy. Everything has always been MUCH less expensive than Midway, Gilroys machine work is better IMO, they stick to the price they quote you or let you know if something extra turns up that is going to cost you more and they are very good about getting your shit done. I like Steve at Midway but EVERY time I took work to him it was WAY more expensive than what he quoted and I had to bug the shit out of him to get my work done otherwise it just sat there. Nice guy but I will NEVER send business there again, just too much shady shit going on.

Yeah, Cres is good people! The last time I was there there was a guy named Wade that was way cool too (had a nice '64 or '65 Chevelle w/ a big block that was red) and another older guy that left a couple years ago, I think his name was Henry?
