    10-4 CB Store is off I-75 at x-358, it used to be a really good shop....I have not used them lately though..

    There is a shop on the back side of the Wildwood Chrome Shop also, I-75 and I don't remember the exact exit but its easy to find..

    There is one in Wildwood next door to the chrome shack.
    He's alright in a pinch.

    Thats what I meant to say actually.Thanks.
    He is alright,he thinks his shop in on South Beach they way he prices stuff.
    Its one of those shops you dont want to touch a radio thats is working
    I was in there last year to get a meter light fixed on a 25,the radio was already smokin when I brought it in.While he is putting a new meter in he said someones already upgraded the radio,well no #### sherlock the 1969 has been in that radio for nearly 10 years :biggrin_2559: then he hooks it up and
    and takes a peak at the watts,then come the funny . . . . .
    Not bad for a stage 1 tune :biggrin_2559: lemme guess you got a stage 2 tune if I got money :biggrin_25517:
    Its hitting hard on 38-40 watts,Put the covers on it before someone gets hurt fella :yes2557:

    The shop is a mess etc,etc,etc . . . . . :biggrin_25512:

    I'll have to remember that......seems like there might be one across the street behind the truck wash somewhere also...

    For years I've called Wildwood a tourist trap for truckers !!

    Dont call it Wildweed for nothing :biggrin_25523:
    Back early/mid 90's there were two other shops east of the big road
    The one that was in the TA got slammed shut by the "Do Right Brothers"
    for dope and some other stuff.

    Anyway,Im sure the shop in Ocala is still open,might try them.

    Standing in the corner, timed out
    10-4 cb store is still a good choice.

    Across from the Freightshaker dealership, I-75 X-358....
