Thanks so much for your contribution on this subject ...... can you shed some light on an appropriate product and a time/temperature so we can have an intelligent conversation with a shop. I have identified what I believe to be a good shop in PA (2 hours away from me) and don't want to come off ignorant in a conversation with them.

As a suggestion, you should hook up with one of the Cali gang and get a set done ..... if it worked out I am sure you would get some business, we are a picky but loyal bunch
