New mechanic needed - Venice/ Mar vista, CA area

Moved closer to the ocean and my trusty mechanic is over in silver lake and body shop is in Boyle heights. Sad

Need a new mechanic and body shop in the Venice, Mar Vista, CA area.

Please let me know if you have suggestions!

I'm in Santa Monica. Reasonably priced independent auto repair is fast disappearing from this side of town due to gentrification and high commercial rents.
For big (= expensive) jobs, I recommend K+H Import Repair in Canoga Park. I had them do the timing belt/WP/valve cover gaskets recently and am quite pleased.
But Canoga Park is too far to go for small jobs.
The only local shop I have used, that I like, (but only for brake/suspension service) is Samo Wheel and Brake (see Howard) in Santa Monica. But it's not 'cheap'...just good, IMO.

Why not learn to wrench yourself?
