Cen-Tex Plating Company
I inherited two 1967 Plymouth GTX’s from my Brother-In-Law and brought them home to Texas from his place in Georgia recently. FYI, the Plymouth GTX was introduced into the Plymouth line in 1967 and this model did not share the styling or design with other MoPar models. Furthermore the body style changed completely in 1968 and thereafter. Why the long winded intro? ….Because none of the aftermarket classic car parts manufacturers produce reproduction parts for the 1967 Plymouth GTX and additionally only 12,010 units were built that year which is very low. This makes used parts scarce.I’m restoring both of these cars and needed the services of a good chrome plating company. I took the beat up front and rear bumpers from one of the cars to see how they would turn out being re-chromed. The owner David explained that he would send the bumpers to their San Antonio facility where they had patterns of all the bumpers made when the cars rolled off the assembly line and that their craftsmen would bring my bumpers back to match those specifications. Just thinking about that is really something.When I returned about four weeks later to get them I unwrapped one and was completely blown away. Nice work? No, spectacular work! The quality of the chrome plating was better than any I have ever seen. The bumper was repaired to perfection and the cost was much less than buying an aftermarket bumper which in this case is unavailable. I asked if he could refinish some of the pot metal, stainless steel and aluminum trim and he told me to bring them to him. I picked up a bunch of trim and molding from him today and was once again impressed beyond words. This company does outstanding work, at reasonable prices and the turnaround time is great. The only problem I have now is that all the other work on the cars has to be done to somehow match the workmanship standard set by Cen-Tex Plating Co Inc., no easy feat!

AutoNation Toyota South Austin
We have now purchased two new Tacoma trucks from Nassir Ahmed and his manager David Valdez. First one was August 1, 2015 and it was a beauty but unfortunately was totaled in an accident a few months back. The first deal was simply great. No nonsense, just a straight deal and everything you could ask for. So we went back for the 2nd one and picked it up yesterday. Another great transaction and would like to recommend AutoNation to anyone looking for a new Toyota. They ordered both trucks for us and we were able to get exactly what we wanted. No games, no padding the invoice with a bunch of make believe dealer add ons such as nitrogen, tinting, undercoating, etc. After attempting to deal with the San Antonio dealers this organization is a breath of fresh air. Even the F&I guys were great to deal with. No pressure from them to buy their add ons. They explained them and went on from there. Went home happy campers.

Most people dont need driveshaft repair everyday, but when you do usually you take what you can get. Well let me tell you Scottys can get you great service great pricing. They removed lathed and balanced my driveshaft reinstalled it and even showed and explained how these test are performed. Ive been in alot of shops. I could tell this was family owned and operated, I liked that. Everyone seemed to enjoy their jobs.As I set and wait which wasnt long 1hr during lunchtime. I could tell they really took care of customers. Im not a full fledged mechanic with a big shop. I just needed onetime Driveshaft repair. They still took care of me as a priority. Im recomending Scottys to everyone.

Atlas Auto Spring & Alignment
These guys KNOW THEIR BUSINESS! We own and operate a Mobile RV Repair Business and our work van needed a lift at the back end. They took us in at our appointment time, and analyzed the back end, custom made the springs and put them on. I sat there and watched all of this that day and was completely amazed at the work, professionalism and knowledge they had. The amazing HARD WORK this company does is nothing short of FANTASTIC!! If you need springs or alignment go HERE NOT ANYWHERE ELSE!!!! YOU WILL BE VERY HAPPY WHEN THEY ARE DONE!!

These guys were great. I gave them a really odd job and they were great with it. I bought this crappy loving cup from the 1920's for my fantasy football trophy build. I brought it to them in bad shape.The original plating was all tore up. They got right down to work and in a month I went to pick it up. WOW! It looks amazing with that nickel finish. I mounted it on to a custom wooden base and it looks amazing. I can't wait to show the league. David and the guys at CenTex did a fabulous job and I highly recommend them to anybody.

I own a Boat Detail Business at Lake Travis and Allen one of the salesperson who works there has always been so so helpful in having and ordering my needed supplies. He also inform me of other products I might like and he was on the money with info about waxes I would want because I wouldn't have tried a certain wax without his knowledge now I have a wide selection to choose from. Thanks Allen you are the bomb you are so helpful

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! They took in my truck this morning whichhad a nasty vibration at highway speeds. Axel had the problem diagnosed within 20 minutes (turned out it needed driveshaft u-joints) and within the hour I was back on the road with a smooth riding vehicle. Price was reasonable. Very happy customer. Other shops were qutoing me much more money jut to look at it and they wanted the vehicle for at least a day or two. Again, very happy customer here!

Ace Discount Auto Salvage
I called to find an a/c clutch for my mom's 2000 Nissan Maxima. They didn't have the part, but the gentleman I spoke with was very helpful and went out of his way to find the part I needed at 2 other salvage yards nearby. I will definitely be calling them again for any other auto part I may need. They were friendly, helpful and courteous -- and they spoke english!! Hard to find these days.

Special Truck & Auto Salvage
Called looking for parts for a not so popular truck. They has one and had the part I needed and quoted me a good price. I showed up and was escorted to the area where the truck is and discovered three trucks not just one. The part I wanted was pointed out, I agreed and they did all the work. Will definitely call then first with any parts needs in the future, for any of my vehicle needs.
Tips & Advices
Depending on the part and its overall quality, a good amount of money can be saved by purchasing aftermarket parts versus OEM parts. But aftermarket parts that are low in price might also be lower in quality and could do more harm than good to your car, or they may need to be replaced more frequently than a more expensive counterpart. This could lead to saving some money in the short term, but spending more than anticipated in the long term.
The type of tires being purchased is the most significant determinant of their price. SUV tires are more costly than average car tires. And high-performance tires are more costly than economy grade tires. On average, standard tires for an average-sized vehicle are around $100 per tire. Standard tires for an SUV are around $150 and pick-up truck tires are about $200 on average. Some dealers offer discounts if purchasing more than one tire.
Car inspections typically take about an hour. However the wait time can be longer depending on how busy the shop is. Call ahead for an appointment to avoid long wait times.
Depending on the manufacturer, certain aftermarket parts can be just as reliable as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts. But one item within a vehicle, like oil filters for instance, could have multiple manufacturers and there could be inconsistencies in quality among them.
Costs of replacing a windshield can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors:
  • Vehicle make and model
  • How much of the cost insurance will cover
  • Whether the windshield installers come to your location or you bring the vehicle to them
  • Standard service costs of the windshield installers
Generally, newer and higher-end vehicles cost more to have their windshields replaced because certain manufacturers use modified or proprietary glass types.
