Customer brings in this 1969 Mustang Coupe. The car was pretty solid except for the rust in the quarter panels and bad paint. We replaced both quarter panels and wheel tubs and repainted the complete car. What do you think?๏ฟผ

I hope everyone will take a moment to read this all the way through. Yesterday I was made aware of a family (mom, dad, and two young girls) whose house had burned to the ground. They lost everything. The family now resides in a local extended stay hotel.
A teacher of one of the girls ( a friend of mine) has paid for their next few days rent and purchased some groceries for them. My company will do the same. I am asking that those of you that can and will help to contact me directly where I will give you contact information where you can also donate to this family. I have never tried this venue before (facebook) to solicit aid for anyone but I have hopes that it will be received well and garner some support. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

This beautiful 55 Chevy came in last week with front and rear damage due to brake failure. Finished and delivered today to a proud and very happy owner. This car is a rare find. Totally untouched except for one repaint in 1980.

Question: Do I have to take my car to the repair shop that my insurance company says?

Answer: NO!! It's your car. It's your choice.

02/21/2019

Just so you know....If you are tired of insurance companies TELLING you where to take your car for repairs, you DO have options. You don't have to do as you are told. It's your car, not theirs and the repair facility is YOUR choice, not theirs.

We don't sell cars or change oil, etc. ALL we do is repair collision damage. That is our only focus and You are our customer, not an insurance company and we will treat you that way. Guaranteed.

When asked, "Do you do restorations?" The response is, well yes, yes we do!! A good restoration takes a little time and a little money, but look at the results .

Before and after. This posting took only about a week from start to finish. Oh, the magic of the internet. The job took over five years!! The car did set for several periods untouched due to other more pressing jobs. Test drive today. Woo Hoo!! This car is going to its new home very soon. Not too far away. I think I'll keep this one

We are getting close. Here are just a few photos to let everyone know just how close we are. I'm super excited!!

Time for wheels and tires on the old Firebird. Out with the old, in with the new. We will keep the nostalgic look however. More to follow.....

Whoa!! Stop!! Detour!! We'll install the dash and gauges as well as the rest of the interior before moving on to the front of the car. That steering wheel will have to go. We are just using it now until the new one arrives. We decided to put the interior back to factory stock with a few upgrades but no modifications. What do you think??

Alittle more progress has been made. As you can see the engine, transmission, frame, and rear body are all assembled now. No, the car still doesn't run but it does roll. Let's get the front end (fenders, hood, and nose clip on it. In that process we will also complete the front wiring, brakes and windshield wiper/washer install). We're getting closer. Stay with me....

The body of the old Firebird is straight and has been painted. The engine, transmission and rear end have all been rebuilt. New suspension parts have been installed front and rear. Today we will set the body back on the frame and have this car rolling soon. The build continues tomorrow. Stay with me....

I hope I'm not moving too fast. Chip Foose would be proud. Ha!! This actually took many months working on this old car after hours and on weekends. As you can see the car is back from soda blast, and new floorpans, trunk floor, quarter panels, and rear body panel have been replaced. All of the body straightening is complete and the doors have been reinstalled and adjusted to fit. Tomorrow will bring another major step forward on this build. Stay with me....

So the subframe is back from sandblast and powder coat and it looks great!! Front suspension and brakes are new and installed. Engine and transmission are back from the machine shop, are painted and installed in the fresh subframe. Looking good so far. Oh yeah, did I mention that this old bird is sporting a real 1972 Pontiac 455 HO. The engine builder tells me this engine should deliver well over 400 horses and over 500 Ft/Lbs of torque. This should be fun!!

09/14/2018

Well alright then. This old Firebird has been completely taken apart and mounted on a rotisserie. That will allow us to gain access to every part of the car with great ease. Let's sent this bad boy off for soda blast to remove all of the paint and rust, and send the engine, transmission, and rear end out for a complete rebuild. We should also send the frame and related components out for sand blast and powder coat. Stay with me. There is a lot more coming......

OK. Tear down is complete and this car is a rusty, wrecked mess. That's alright though, it just presents a bigger challenge. New sheet metal arriving soon. Time to start cutting it apart. Wait for it.........

OK. I've been sand bagging for a while. This old Firebird arrived here quite some time ago. Just like the last post, I thought it wasn't as bad as it turned out to be. I know it had been wrecked and had the rust typical for a 45 year old car. But, I didn't realize until later just had much rust there really was. Teardown and repairs begin tomorrow. Stay tuned....
