Paint and body work
And, on the other hand, if it runs good and looks bad, well ... the job just isn't complete. No Hotrod, Street Rod or Classic Car or Truck project is complete without a perfect paint job. Just like all of our work, we take great pride in our attention to detail and our painters are artists. We put that magical final touch on your project and we do it right.
From custom to classic, wild to mild, new school to old school, retro to modern, we can create a paint scheme that will always make a great first impression. We use the latest and best technology and equipment and top quality materials to provide you with a beautiful, long lasting paint job. From true-to-the-original restorations to wildly imaginative paint schemes, we can do it all.
The key to a world-class restoration or customization is attention to detail. Let us get those custom parts and pieces a long-lasting, durable custom finish that will last for years to come. Powdercoat is an electrostatically applied coating. The finish is sprayed on as a powder then baked on to permanently bond the part and the powder. The resulting finish is much more resistant to abrasion and corrosion than conventional paints. Powdercoating also allows a thicker application without running or sagging.
Upholstery and interiors
We only use the finest custom quality interior specialty shops in the nation. The sky is the limit for your custom interior. From mild customization to full blown show stoppers, we have you covered. Once we've finished all the mechanical and paint and body work, the final step is the perfect interior. These shops create custom leather and upholstery bucket seats, door panels, headliners and more. They can restore your classic car or truck interior to its original specification or create an eye-popping custom look that is all your own..
