      Well, the chocolate starfish customer service award goes to R&L Starters and Alternators in Milton.
      Not even the good graces to show up.
      I went there during normal business hours...found a sign on the door saying he'd be back shortly....waited, waited, waited....no show.
      Don't care how good their work is now.
      Going to try Lucky tomorrow.
