Hi,

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I urgently looking for some workshop at Johor to restore my Ford Escort MK1 back to daily driven. I bought this car like one and a half year ago and never once driven it. Engine already not able to start when I got this. I tow this car back to Johor from KL/Selangor area. Today my family told me that my old neighbor accidentally knocked on this car with a loud bang. And he just walk off like that. (Dafug?)

Any sifu know where can I get the restoration done at Johor state?

Engine rebuild first and then rebuild the body. Please help me. Thanks! :adore:

That's a nice car

You can try R Tune Garage from JB, they do lots of old specials.
Basically carb engined cars and 80s japanese classics.

I can't make any claims but you can look for this guy Dwayne Ho from RTG and ask if he can work on your Escort

sad to say... some garages really upmarket... seeing ur ride not worth the time... they dont even bother. which i can understand bcos end of day is dollar and cent that count.

same happened to me, shall not put any brand/name of the garages/workshops. i drove my monster to garage, at least the technician/worker/or someone will come and attend.

if i drive the broken islala to workshop, asking them this and that, the way of replying, eh dont waste time and money la... just a pc of junk, dont waste each other time and effort too.

Not always the case. With a broken islala sometimes they see you as a potential cash cow and will give you great service and you'll keep going back to them to fix the old junk. That one I'm the most concerned about. With the shop saying "don't waste time" at least they are honest.

I think that depends on what type of workshop. If normal workshop what car also accept, but if mod shop they might not.....lol
