Automotive / Engine rebuild/repair
« on: April 23, 2017, 11:11:10 AM »
Hello I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who is adept in V8 engine repair or maybe even a complete rebuild. I have a 03 Land Rover Discovery 2 that has a pretty loud engine knock. I used my stethoscope to figure out that the sound is coming from the bottom of the engine somewhere. I think it may have something to do with the lifters or possibly even a broken rocker shaft. I can do regular maintenance on the thing but for something like this I need to enlist some expert help. If anyone is interested in this project any help would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to contact me directly at 386-588-0800.

Hey I have zero experience painting cars, however I paint guitars all the time. I also have a car that needs to be painted. Maybe we can collaborate and paint our car/truck and learn along the way. I can start youtubing videos on it. Call/text me 386-588-0800 if interested.

Looking forward to meeting everyone at an open house on the 4th

Hello all my name is Matthew Desormeaux. You can just call me Matt if that suits you. I am a Luthier (stringed instrument maker/repairman) I attended Roberto Venn School of Luthiery in 2010 and worked for Guitar Center in Winter Park Fl from 2012-2016 and Ranked in the top 10 nationwide for GC. While I was there I apprenticed part time with Master Luthier Harold Hernandez learning how to build smaller acoustic style and spanish style instruments. I left Gc and started working for Lyrical Lumber in Maitland Fl about a year ago. I have learned so much about finish work and over all guitar building and repair this passed year, however due to high overhead and un-motivated management I have found myself with the prospect of becoming fully self employed from my shop at home. I am extremely proficient with electronic repairs, structural repairs, setups maintenance, and finishing. I have a lot of customers interested in having me build them custom guitars and I am extremely excited at the opportunity of learning and using cnc equipment to accommodate my clients in a timely manner.
