I don't see a list on the forum of people who can do PPI's and thought it might be good to have a single source. Let me know if this is improper.

And feel free to send additions/subtractions, corrections or updates anytime, either in this thread or by PM, and I'll make the revisions.

GT-only or known to have significant GT experience

Arizona: Rich Roback / 586-292-2788 / Source suggested by forum member Specracer: "Rich Roback in AZ (was on the original build team)"

California, Newhall: Kendall Pond / Cooltech / sales@cooltechllc.com / https://www.cooltechllc.com / Forum member: nota4re

Canada, Edmonton: Don Sekora / 403-318-4812 / donsekora@hotmail.com / Forum member: CanadaGT

Michigan, Detroit: Rich Brooks / The GT Garage / 734-658-9498 / richgtguy@gmail.com / Forum member: thegtguy / Source suggested by forum member extrap: "Rich did mine and I am 100% satisfied with his communication and results, the whole process"

Texas, Houston: Mark Darraugh / Sphere Motorsports / 832-277-7062 / http://www.spheremotorsports.com

Have PPI experience on exotic cars

Texas, Dallas: Norwood Auto Italia / James Patterson / www.norwoodautoitalia.com / Source suggested by forum member digman1: "No he is not GT focused, and have no idea how many he has done. I just know from the detailed PPI and photos that he was thorough. Their main mechanic, Michael, is a longtime Ferrari / exotic specialist, and has worked on some very valuable cars, repairing and restoring. They have been working on cars for me since I bought a 355 Spider in 2003, and always done great work."

... and of course if you're on this list and wanna be removed, or just want your # removed, let me know.

Others?

Thx for the acknowledgement of my technical abilities. I have done quite a few over the years. Also have a vast array of consumables for these cars. FYI I personally owned 4 GT's (3 were bought new) all at same time. 80,000 miles one of them. Sold them all to buy a nice cabin and a 2019 Heritage Edition. "One can only regret what he has done for so long". Honestly wish I was not picked for a NFGT. Miss the 06's . Cannot wait to sell NFGT next April. Sad really. Currently looking to buy a 06 again, but must wait till I sell 2019. I prefer no stripe cars. They are faster, less wind resistance. imo My email is donsekora@hotmail.com

Is he GT focused? ie does he know the GT inside and out? That's my goal for this list. If he meets that, I'll add him. I just want to make sure he's a lot more than just a good, knowledgeable mechanic.

No he is not GT focused, and have no idea how many he has done.

I just know from the detailed PPI and photos that he was thorough.
