What exactly does your shop do?

We restore and repair automobiles of all makes and models, domestic, imports, classic or modern, street rod, rat rod or muscle car. We perform ground up restorations to complete paint jobs, upholstery, drive train, fabrication, etc. We can provide any and all services your particular vehicle requires.

I am restoring my vehicle myself and only need a certain part of my project professionally restored.
Do you accept "partial" restorations?

Absolutely! Partial restorations make up a huge percentage of the cars that pass through our shop. We can do as much or as little as you are confortable with.

I would like my car to be restored with the fact that it will be driven in mind.
Are you willing to do a vehicle as a "driver"?

Absolutely! We can restore your vehicle to your specifications from driver type to a concourse quality restoration.

How long have you been in business?

We have been at this location since 1991 and have addressed the needs of thousands of customers in that time.

What exactly would it take to get a restoration started on my vehicle?

Call us anytime and schedule an appointment to either bring your vehicle down to our facility or bring pictures down so we can see the extent of the work needed, get a feel for what it is your looking for and figure out what your options are.

Once I am ready to commit to having my vehicle restored what next?

Initially we draw up the paper work outlining the work we are going to perform on the vehicle.  Once you have reviewed and signed the necessary forms we ask for an initial deposit. The size of the deposit depends on the nature and size of the work to be performed. You are ready to bring in your vehicle at this point.

How will I be charged for the work performed?

We work on a time and materials basis billed out to you on a monthly schedule. You will receive an itemized, detailed invoice outlining labor, materials and parts.  Initially your monthly invoice will show how much of your deposit you have used up. Once the invoices exceed the initial deposit invoices are due upon receipt.

How long does it take to restore a vehicle?

That varies from type and extent of repairs needed to the brand of the vehicle to availability of needed parts.  Typically a full restoration takes one year plus while a paint job may only take a few months.

Do you have references?

Yes. Those are available at any time at your request.

Do you offer transportation?

Yes. We can arrange for either standard transportation or enclosed.

Are you licensed?

Can I stop the restoration process at any time?

Absolutely! You can stop the process at any time, or even continue at a later date. It is your car and you have total control.

Are your technicians certified?
