Is there a T wheel rebuilder in California that any one knows about?
I believe there is one in Sonora, but can't remember his name.
We have a wheelwright in Brea. He is a Model T guy and is active in our local club. He just finished a set of wheels for me that are now waiting for me to paint.
He is Dave Seiler <firstname.lastname@example.org>
George Garrigan has an ad in the VF mag. Phone is 209-533=0468
Sacramento is within a hundred miles of Sonora. If you take the parts directly to the shop and pick up the finished wheels instead of paying for shipping, that makes a big cut in the overall cost. If Garrigan costs any more than the others, that may more than cover the difference.
I know you asked for someone in California, but I just recently called Garrigan in northern California and he has an 8 month back log, plus he's a little expensive.
Stutzman in Ohio is great, he's turnover time is much better, and his prices are far more reasonable. Even with shipping, you come out ahead.
I talked to Stutzman recently, and he told me his current turnaround time was five weeks. I think that's mighty good, especially considering his reputation for first class quality work.
