As this was to be my first hydraulic setup, I wanted something more than the traditional setup of simple pumps and batteries. I visited several shops here in Socal, and thought I had found the place I wanted to do my install.

Several days later, I was in Las Vegas on business, and remembered hearing about this shop, Black Magic. So i thought I would check it out. I went in, and was greeted by Ron (who I think was on lil at the time :biggrin: ). I have a strong mechanical backround, and one of the things that bothered me about lifting early Impalas, is the panhard rod (or trac arm as it is sometimes called) causing the rear end to dog leg. One of the shops I went to said "Thats the way it is". I mentioned it to Ron, and he brought out a wishbone, and explained how it works and why. Right there I knew I found a shop that knows not only hydro's, but the mechanics behind it. Over the next several months, whenever I was in town, I stopped in to ask questions or purchase more parts. Ron and the crew (thats you, OJ) always took the time to answer questions, or give me suggestions. I even stopped in a couple weeks before the car was done, and sat around readin old copies of Lowrider magazine. I was always told to hang out and kick back.

In October I brought the car in. We discussed a setup, talked price, and settled on a design. The guys were on it, and i got my car back in less than 8 weeks. All throughout the build, I was kept infomed of the schedule, and any issues that arose. They even opened the shop on Sunday so I could come get my car. OJ gave me his mobile #, and told me to call if I ever had any questions.

This is a professional shop run by people who know their shit. The quality of the work is exceptional, as is the service. I highly recommend these guys.

Again, Ron, Jessica, and OJ, thank you for doing such a great job on my car. It is a work of art.

IMO they dont shit flowers, they do screw up and there are stories of "hustling"...

But even with all the bad theyre still probably the top shop around (which says alot about the whole industry). Ive bought from them before and will continue to because they have the latest greatest products and technical help. :cool: And the voices on the phone I can understand, another plus :thumbsup:
