DOC member recommended: "Ian Grant is the front man and I confess that I struggle to see how he does it for the money. I had a complete bespoke loom with a dash rewire for a couple of hundred quid and have eliminated every electrical gremlin my car had in one go. I would thoroughly recommend him and know he travels UK wide."
