Sure, Howard,

Parts, labor & tax = $896.24. They probably spent at least 4 hours searching for the air pressure regulator that they didn't charge me for....
These are knowledgeable people with fair prices.

Randy,

The steer tag is a big help when making the tight turns but you gotta watch that it doesn't quit working. BTW, you probably know already that the air dryer is a bear to change due to its location and that it is plumped with copper which has to be removed to get the dryer out.

I decided to have Coachworx install a new tv in the front of the bus and they did a great job. We had some problem with the bose speakers working with the new tv but Ben solved the problem. I was very happy with my experence there.

The map looks like they're next door to Parliament. Any relationship?

Well; I was going to cut the vitricore and make the project complicated and Johnny and I never got comfortable about cutting the stuff. So after talking with the guys at Ccoachworx I was sure about their ability. However after I got there we took a different direction and did not need to cut it at all.

I have a new-to-me '93 widebody (pictures and story coming soon) and have had it at Coachworx the past three weeks. I have gotten to know both the people and the facility very well in that time and I cannot say enough good things about these people, their facility, and capabilities. They are extremely knowledgeable, customer-oriented, and fair. I have been present many times after hours when calls have come in from customers and non-customers alike and they always do everything they can to help the caller or point them in the right direction.

They helped me evaluate my coach before I bought it so I knew what I was getting into, and charged me less than quoted. I've rarely had that happen before. Their primary experience has been with high-end Prevost coaches, but they are very familiar with the similar systems that are in Blue Birds and also knowledgeable about BB-specific issues and where to get parts and answers. Several 'Birds have passed through their shop every week I have been here and I have heard nothing but good things from the owners.

Many of you might remember Dick Warren, an old Blue Bird owner from way back. Those that do will know that Dick is very "particular" about his coach and the work done on it. He just drove his Prevost 3,000 miles to have Frank do the body and paintwork at Coachworx, and was very, very pleased with the results. That should say something by itself.

If you are anywhere within a reasonable drive of Coachworx, I would highly recommend them.
