That was how the original question was phrased... "who would you use".
I gave some general pointers to what kind of operations you'd look for,
but it's not really my cup of tea. I had an engine failure about six
years ago, and since then have done some significant work on my Tiger to
replace the engine, transmission, brakes, and front suspension. No doubt
I could have farmed all the work out to someone local or to one of the
better-known Tiger places, and it would have been back on the road years
ago... But it wouldn't be the same. Actually, it would be the same. I'd
have just another Tiger restored by XYZ Tiger Specialists or using all
of so-and-so's parts. Not that there's anything wrong with that... But
I'd rather design and build something myself.

Subject: Re: [Tigers] Hypothetical question???
Correct me if I'm wrong, but most of the fantasies expressed so far seem
to center around writing large checks to other folks to produce crazy
perfect Tigers for them. Are we getting soft?
Isn't there anyone out there who would use their fantasy budget to buy a
bunch of neat tools, maybe build a dedicated garage with a lift, and
start learning new skills and building their own crazy Tiger? Crazy
could mean either restored to 100 point original, or modified the way
they want, or whatever in between.
Writing checks may be easier, but nothing beats the sense of
accomplishment when you do it yourself.
