Not saying he's not legit, but I bought something from him and never really got what he said he had (SR alternator adjusting bolt hardware). He sent me a replacement one (after a few weeks of waiting), but was not the original one (ACE Hardware type) and it was too short. Unfortunately it wasn't a smooth transaction for me. No hard feelings at all kid, it just sucks not getting what you paid for. Peace!!!!

Bardabe, the specialist known as Juan

Forum Member: http://zilvia.net/f/members/bardabe.html


Ive been building my track s14 for a while now and I sent my car out to

Bardabe aka JUAN for a switch weld. I didn't have a truck on me, so he

volunteered to pick up my car if I rent a uhaul for it.

He came all the way from Lake Perris to pick up my car in Los Angeles!

After I got back my car, I was VERY satisfied with the outcome of the work.

For the price, he gave me I expected to pay alot more.

Juans a great guy, good friend, and literally one of the only guys

I will ever trust to work on my car.

I am extremely satisfied with what he has done with my car, and will be

a returning customer without a doubt!

Hands down the best guy to ever work on my car.

Extreme attention to detail, everything was PERFECT

take it from me, if you ever need Anything done in SOCAL

Juan is the guy to do it.

You won't regret it.


So this Review is to you Juan, thanks for going out of the way for a customer!

Sometimes referred to as MyMonkeyBitch, Juan is golden.

Helped troubleshoot my SX with a smile on his face. Tried offering alcohol and he declined. "What a stand up guy. More for me!"

He's the go-to guy whenever you need ANYTHING.

Will do business again.

Juan tucked my fender harness and did some cutting and welded so i would never have to worry about it again...he also wired up my Bee*R rev limiter...used solder instead of butt connectors like some "businesses" use

everything came out legit, very happy with the quality of the work, and u cant beat his prices!

Good guy, who does excellent work. You need to move closer though man! It's a killer driving all the way out to you--still worth it though. Great attention to detail, could've easily done a half ass job and I wouldn't have been none the wiser. Doesn't nickel and dime you to death either--appreciate that!

It's hard to find people like Juan, who take pride in their work these days.

I'll definitely be back, when the time comes for more upgrades

Don't be a stranger!

was referred to juan by another member here for my SR wiring harness.. thank goodness! Did my s13sr into my s14 wiring for a great deal and let me watch the whole process. was a great experience and the harness plugged in and started up no prob. heat shrink tubing + soldering = quality harness. This guy doesn't even have to look at diagrams he knows his 240 wiring back to front so well.

thanks again!

Just picked up my car from Juan yesterday and I was very impressed by his work.

He pulled my motor, changed all the oil seals and the oil pan, did my timing and accessory belts, water pump, etc. He installed my new motor mounts, clutch/flywheel, pivot ball, slave cylinder, etc. Then he fabbed some custom AC lines for my RB25 that came out awesome, AND he arranged to have the whole system pressure-tested and filled which was not as expensive as I would have expected.

He also inspected my wiring and tinkered with a few things to get the motor running right, including hooking up my VTC and adjusting the A/C wiring to kick up my idle and turn on the e-fans when the A/C comes on. He fixed my cold idle which turned out to be a combination of a plugged IACV and an electrical issue. Also had him weld my diff which he stayed up all night doing so it would be ready for me to pickup on thursday!

We ran into a problem where I needed another crossmember once the motor was already out of the car, and Juan found one and went to pick it up for me himself. And he didn't charge me a bunch for the inconvenience, he was very helpful and understanding!

To top it off, he answered all of my questions and gave me sage advice on my swap and my car. Definitely a good guy to know and he will work hard to make sure your car is solid before it leaves his shop. I think the best aspect of his business is that he doesn't mind doing customer service and he stands behind his work, so if I have any concerns its good to know that he cares.

For the money I spent, I feel like I got every pennys worth and that's rare when it comes to shops/labor.

Thanks Juan, I'm glad we could do business and I will definitely be back for some IC piping or whatever else I need down the line.
