Need tech for after hours mech work

I need to find a mechanic in the Arlington or Ft Worth area to do after hours work on cars that I buy and sell. My father is a dealer and I frequently come across cars needing work that I don't want to work on or can't do the work on. Mostly a/c work, replacing worn out suspension pieces and alignments if possible.

I had a friend that worked at a body shop and after hours I would bring the car to him with the parts and pay him cash. I kept him pretty busy over a couple year period but he is no longer around. I'm looking for a experienced tech who can also help diagnose problems again, mostly worn out suspension. I am very professional about getting the work done and paying in cash on the spot. Time is money for both of us. PM me if you are interested. Rick.

Are you talking about complete suspension overhauls or just small stuff? I have a shop in keller and ive been messing with suspensions for years. Im actually a chassis fabricator and i have work as it is but i might be intrested in small, easy money jobs that i can knock out quick. I just fixed a gas tank leak on a 1975 vette today for example.

Yeah, just small stuff. I don't buy car that needs anything big. If I can't drive it there then I won't buy it. When I buy a car I want to make sure that it runs good before I sell it so if it needs something on the front end like struts, control arms, ball joints or anything like that I want to get it replaced. Also things like a/c work and oil leaks. What area are you in?
