Hi All,

I am in need of a pagoda expert who can perform a PPI for me in Ft. Lauderdale.  Any references to individuals or companies that have the expertise and experience to conduct the PPI is appreciated. 

Thank you in advance.

Hi Paul,

I am sure someone in your area will let you know of a shop/indevidual that can provide help. Meantime have a look at a pre-purchase check list prepared by many of our Members over the years.

Good luck,

Dieter

Body is everything.  a bad engine or gearbox will cost you.  A bad body will kill you.  You really need someone who knows our cars up down and sideways. In lieu of that get as many pictures of the sides of the engine compartment up high, The underside and the trunk floor as possible and post them here.  If the car is Euro Spec it is almost certainly rusty.  Even if you flew in Dan Caron or Joe Alexander the 2 or 3 thousand you spent could save you 50.
