Machine shop in Florida with BBF skills.

Post  fordguy69 on April 15th 2014, 3:12 pm

Anybody want to make a recommendation on a machine shop in Tampa/Orlando area that knows anything about BBF's.

I have been out of the loop on this stuff for so long, I don't know of anyone to use anymore. Everybody I used to know/trust is either out of the business or dead.

Thanks.

I know Kris Nelson at Nelson Competition can do a BBF. He's in Pinellas Park. He's not a BBF guru, per se, but does everything and does it very well. I wouldn't hesitate to go there if I was closer. Nice guy and very reasonable prices, too.

Call Steve Johnson and tell him what you want to do. He will steer you in the right direction.

I was going to suggest that as well.  I know his team ran a bbf.

If you contact him do ask him about Kris Nelson.

No, it was just a recommendation to ask Steve who around in that area he would recommend.

I believe also that just outside the entrance to BMP there was a machine shop that ran BBF stuff, but never heard much about them.

Yow's Automotive or something like that.
