Services Specific to All Antique Items
We are A PPG and Sikens certified restoration facility, and use only the highest quality products available to produce award-winning paint work. Beginning with bare metal, we use a four-stage chemical treatment to deep clean metal and neutralize ingrained microscopic surface rust after we’ve stripped the piece of paints and primers. We apply a coat of epoxy primer, and depending on the part, we may apply finish color directly on the epoxy, or we will apply urethane buildup primer and sand it flat. After painting, the piece is meticulously sanded and buffed to a mirror finish to give depth and richness to the paint work.
From OEM original wiring to fully customized electrical harnesses, we will update, troubleshoot, and install electrical systems tailored to your application’s needs. We have extensive experience in period-built harnesses as well as conversions such as 6V to 12V and upgrades such as harness relays. We test ALL of our electrical systems to ensure perfect operation and repair or replace completely replace them if necessary.
We offer international and domestic shipping with pre- and post- departure vehicle inspection.

Body and Trim Repair
After going over a client’s project and vision, we begin our metal work with the goal of retaining as much of the original metal as possibly to maintain originality and enhance the value and aesthetics of the item being restored. Our extensive experience in welding allows us to craft our panels from sheet metal, and repair damaged metal components. Our skills and techniques include welding, metal finishing, hammer, dolly, filing, shrinking wheel and English wheel techniques as well as TIG, MIG, Oxy and acetylene welding.
We carefully source our materials to find stock, period-correct interiors with authentic padding and underlays to make the car feel factory new. We take pride in sourcing our materials following the greatest authenticity standards, and we often search OEM manufacturers across the US and Europe for materials, as well as hand-fabricate materials and patterns for each car. Hand-fabricating from genuine materials allows us to recreate original interiors, as well as factory-precise, fully customized carpets, headliners, seats, covers, door panels, cover tops, and any other interior components.
We offer routine services from small jobs, from oil changes to tune-ups and brake service for a large breadth of vintage cars, including rare and exotic pieces.
As part of a ground-up restoration or a specific job, we rebuild engines, transmissions, differentials, brakes, and suspension. As a standard feature of our work, we ensure that everything meets or exceeds manufacturer specifications, and use only the highest-quality parts. We also offer performance upgrades for racing or customization, such as engine upgrades from period to modernized engines.
Whether you’ve purchased a car to restore or are considering the purchase of a prospect, we can carry out a detailed inspection of mechanical, electrical, interior, and body work to assess any and all needed repairs.
We take tremendous efforts to ensure that our work lasts. The quality and precision of our work ensures that our clients’ vehicles will perform like new. We maintain the originality of our cars and preserve them for a lifetime.
