Where the rubber meets the road:
Fabrication/Sheetmetal: From rust repair to
structural repair, dents to entire panels. We can
fix or completely remake any shape found on a car -
in any alloy found on a car.
We blend traditional tools and techniques with
modern fabrication equipment and methods. We are as
comfortable on our English Wheel as we are on our
power bead roller. Tig, Mig, flame, leadwork, cast
iron, stainless, etc.
Woodwork, Composites & Plastics: From veneers
to frames, steam bending to finger jointing.
Staining, dying, dry rot repair, buck construction.
Ash, Oak, Burl, etc.
We are comfortable with fiberglass, carbon fiber,
plastics, bakelite, rubber and foam extrusions, and
all sorts of odd concoctions OEM's have devised over
the years as technology marched forward.
Mechanical Work: We have the experience and
capabilities to completely rebuild and/or upgrade
suspension, brakes, hydraulics, A/C and heating,
steering and all other driveability areas of your
car. We completely rebuild engines, transmissions,
rear axles, steering boxes. We rewire cars, make
custom harnesses, repair switches, regulators,
starters, generators and alternators. We perform
quartz clock conversions and repair and/or upgrade
There is literally no part of a car we have not had
down to the smallest component – returning it back
to as good, and in many cases, better, than original
Body/Paint: We spray nearly every brand and
style of paint. We still shoot lacquer. We are
comfortable with single stage solids to Alsa
radicals. Our normal painting medium is modern
Although most of our work involves complete paint
jobs, we have had to become very skilled with the
matching and blending of very fine finishes. In
other words, if your classic has a ding we can fix
it and no one will ever know it happened. Really.
Our metal prep - the foundation of any exceptional
paint job - has evolved into a comprehensive,
proprietary set of steps to ensure your car is rust
free, and will remain rust free.
Upholstery/Trimwork: From tracking down
original materials, buttons and stitching methods to
searching through books of leather swatches to find
that perfect color, hand and finish to set off a
magnificent interior, our fully outfitted trim shop
is ready to handle any task.
Headliners, convertible tops, carpeting and under
hood padding...bench seats and buckets, door panels
and dash pads...original and custom.
Machining/Prototype/Custom parts: When parts
are unavailable, or something unique is needed, we
can machine or cast a completely new part or design
a unique assembly. Many of these procedures can be
handled in-house. Otherwise, we utilize long
established relationships that conduct this work to
Research/Parts Procurement: We have resources
at our disposal ranging from repair and service
manuals from the dawn of motoring to owners manuals,
wiring diagrams and original OEM Microfiche. Marque
specific books, club magazines, judging guidelines,
authenticity and price guides. Original paint chip
books, material swatch books and design books. All
combined, these resources provide a great starting
point to research nearly any car on the planet,
explore design or style ideas and/or authenticate a
In addition to our reference materials, we have an
extensive parts catalog library, a computer
dedicated solely to parts procurement and research
and a "rolodex" of contacts and suppliers containing
relationships that stretch across the globe.
"Ferreting" information and parts is a critical
component of any project and our experience and
network of support provide us with the last piece of
the puzzle to our comprehensive approach to
designing and restoring cars.
