We have found ourselves between a rock and a hard place. Our client needs an excellent Mercedes Restoration Technician soon, and our efforts to date have not produced the results we had hoped for, and time is of the essence.

If you, or anyone you can think of fits this job description please let us know.

The client is understanding that any potentially available candidate might not hit all of their targets right on the bull's-eye - so there might be a little latitude on the following job description (see below). However, they still need someone who is 90% of the what they need.

I would suggest Jose at Monterey Independent Mercedes. He's an Argentinian with what I would consider a PhD in Mercedes. He used to work for the company in Stuttgart, and was able to diagnose and fix a recurring issue I had with my 108, that the stealership couldn't track down. His number is 831-649-1344. I've seen very old to very new Benz' in his shop.
