Repair Services: One of the most popular on island, will fix next day for most.  Most components are LX. Hours are about 10 am to 7 pm.  English is understood, if not necessarily spoken at first.

How to get there: Go right out Kadena Gate One on Hwy 58. Don't take the overpass by the circle.  Instead, take the circle all the way around back toward gate 3.  When you get around to where the overpass drops out, there's the shop on your right.
