Clutch work for a 72 GTV

Hi

My clutch slave cylinder failed and I need to have it changed. While the car is in the shop, Inshould also have the clutch changed - it was slipping a bit at the convention auto cross (and despite that my old warrior took 1st place in class!)

Question: should I take it to Accel or to Allston Motorsport? Both seem knowdgeable over the phone, and both told me it would be between 1300 and 1800 - or more if something else arises.

Any advise on that?

Thank you!

I've never used them but I've heard good things about Accel. I did buy a used engine from them years ago, they were parting the car for a customer.
