Hi all

I need to get my BOB heads skimmed as they were welded up due to some corrosion problems, ive look on google, ask jeeves etc and they all come up with companies miles and miles away, or people who only do it on exchange basis   So does anybody know of a place in or around Birmingham that does it? and what should i expect to pay?

Thanks
Matt

I can get it done here for £50 per pair.  I'm at j24/j25 M1 if that helps.  Or I know a really good place at Coventry that could do it.  If you'd like their details pm me.
